The 22-year-old appears set to leave Paris Saint-Germain before the end of this window, with Real reportedly preparing a second bid for his services after seeing an initial offer rejected. 

It has been widely reported that it is a lifelong dream of Mbappe's to join the 13-time UEFA Champions League winners, whom his childhood idol Zinedine Zidane represented as a player between 2001 and 2006.

In Spain, the France legend wore the No. 5 jersey, a number that Real are now said to be preparing to offer Mbappe upon his potential arrival at the club before next week Tuesday. 

This is according to Spanish publication AS, which noted that the number is currently worn by defender Jesus Vallejo, who is unlikely to feature much in manager Carlo Ancelotti's plans this season.

Mbappe currently wears the No. 7 shirt at PSG and for France.
