FC Barcelona are reportedly prepared to invest the world record fee they will apparently receive for Neymar in Kylian Mbappe, rivalling Real Madrid in the race to secure the player's signature in the process.

The Catalan giants are understood to be close to losing Neymar, who will apparently complete a €222 million (R3.4 billion) move to Paris Saint-Germain this week.

While many names are flying around as possible replacements for the 25-year-old, Barca's bosses seemingly want to beat their bitter rivals Los Blancos to Mbappe.

Spanish publication Sport has claimed that the Blaugrana believe they are the frontrunners for the 18-year-old AS Monaco wonderkid because they could pay the whole amount up front.

Last week, Marca reported that Real and Monaco had agreed to a "deal in principle", said to be worth €180 million (R2.77 billion), for the forward.

However, not much has happened since, and Barca believe they could still beat their rivals to the attacker's signature.

Mbappe netted 26 goals and assisted another 14 strikes for Monaco last season, helping them lift the Ligue 1 title and reach the UEFA Champions League semi-finals.
