Kylian Mbappe has reportedly been "in talks" with both Liverpool and Real Madrid over a transfer in 2021 after telling Paris Saint-Germain he will not extend his contract.
The 21-year-old's current PSG contract ends in 2022, but the French giants are expected to sell him in 2021 instead of risking losing him for free a year later.
According to L'Equipe, Mbappe and his representatives have been in "regular contact" with both Liverpool and Los Blancos.
The 2018 FIFA World Cup winner completed the move to Les Parisiens at a fee of €145 million (R2.8 billion) from AS Monaco in 2018 – having spent the previous year on loan with the Parisian club – and the French giants want to tie him down to a new deal.

However, Mbappe is said to be keen to take his career to the next level, with Liverpool and Real both said to be interested in his services.
Reds coach Jurgen Klopp has so far insisted that such a mega deal would not be possible for his club, but new kit sponsor Nike could become involved.
Real, meanwhile, have been long-term admirers of the superstar, who visited the club's Valdebebas training facilities as a 14-year-old in 2012.
Zinedine Zidane is understood to be a big fan of Mbappe, and reports suggest that Real would have bought him in this window were it not for the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
Mbappe has scored 91 goals and assisted another 51 strikes in 125 games for PSG to date, helping the Ligue 1 giants lift eight trophies since his arrival at the Parc des Princes in 2017.
