Real Madrid have reached an agreement for the world record breaking transfer of Monaco sensation Kylian Mbappe, according to reports from Marca.

Ladbrokes list the European champions at 1/5 to land Mbappe, while it's just 3/1 that the 18-year-old stays on the French Riviera after all. The deal would surpass the current record, held by Manchester United after signing Paul Pogba last season, by £70 million.

Madrid will pay EUR160m up front and at least a further EUR20m in add-ons relating to Mbappe's success at the Santiago Bernabeu, it is reported.

The Champions League holders are on the look out for a new forward after selling Alvaro Morata to Chelsea in a £70m deal.

Mbappe caught the eye of Real Madrid with a series of brilliant performances in Leonardo Jardim's title-winning side last term.

It's mentioned Monaco were holding hold out for €190 million but did not wish to sell to a direct Ligue 1 rival in Paris Saint-Germain, while Mbappe himself didn't want to join other suitors Manchester City.

Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane denied this week he has asked for a forward to be signed but admitted that "anything can happen" until the transfer window closes next month.

The report claims that despite Monaco's threats to report Mbappe's suitors to Federation Internationale de Football Association for unauthorised contact, Real Madrid officials met with the Ligue 1 champions least week to discuss a deal. The situation should become clearer over the next few days.
