Mbappe has been linked with Los Blancos for the past two years, with the club still looking to fill the void left by all-time top scorer Cristiano Ronaldo in 2017.

Real manager Zinedine Zidane has also been vocal in his admiration for the 2018 World Cup winner, but former PSG midfielder Jerome Rothen - a six-time league winner, claims the deal was set to be closed before the season was suspended.

"I know from club sources that a deal to take Kylian Mbappe to Real Madrid was almost done," Rothen told Radio Montecarlo.

"But with what has been happening, I'm sure that Mbappe's arrival at Real Madrid will be postponed."

"There is no way that Mbappe will extend his contract with PSG.

"They will have an agreement between them in place because PSG agreed to let him go this summer. In my opinion, it's just a question of time."
