With Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe a wanted man, new reports suggest that a certain club is leading the race for his signature.
The France international is said to be keen on a move abroad at the end of the season, and a number of top clubs have been linked with the player.
Liverpool and FC Barcelona have both been credited with serious interest in the striker, but it is reported that Real Madrid are "in pole position" to sign the star, according to the Daily Mail.
Club president Florentino Perez has made the 21-year-old Los Blancos' top target, while manager Zinedine Zidane is a known admirer of the player.
AS has reported that Mbappe wants to move to the Spanish giants, with the opportunity to work under one of his heroes being a big drawcard.
The forward has also spoken highly of manager Jurgen Klopp and the Reds, while Barca have been late entrants in the race to secure his signature.
In reports from Tuttosport, it is claimed that Juventus may try to swing things in their favour with a mammoth world-record offer of £360 million (R7.7 billion).
PSG are still keen on keeping the talented forward in their team, and reportedly tabled a contract offer worth £136 million (R2.9 billion) for the player over the next five years, but Mbappe has not accepted it.
