Real Planning To Use Superstar As Mbappe Bait?

With Real Madrid said to be interested in signing Kylian Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain, new reports have now indicated what their transfer plan for the France star might be.

Last time around, Los Blancos had a quiet transfer window due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and it is claimed that this will allow them to dig deep into their pockets at the end of the campaign.

Mbappe is reportedly regarded as their top target ahead of the new campaign, and Real president Florentino Perez is understood to be determined to lure the Frenchman to the Santiago Bernabeu after missing out when the striker left AS Monaco in 2017.

As reported by the Daily Express, who cited OK Diario chief Eduardo Inda, the Madrid giants intend to use one of their current "Galacticos", Eden Hazard, as bait to get the deal over the line.

"One thing is what PSG could ask for, and I said that Zidane would be there [to approve] is for Vinicius Jr's work," he said.

"But what Real Madrid would like to put as an exchange in the Mbappe operation is Hazard."
