Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly preparing an offer for Kylian Mbappe that would see him earn as much as Neymar, and ward off any potential transfer interest from Real Madrid.

Mbappe is in the final year of his contract and Madrid are extremely keen on snapping up the Frenchman, who is undoubtedly one of the best strikers in the world right now.

According to Marca, PSG are unwilling to give up on trying to keep the 22-year-old at the Parc des Princes, and are ready to pay him £27m per year - the same wages Neymar is on. The report claims that Mauricio Pochettino's side had given up hopes of keeping Mbappe after being told by the player and his agents that he was not going to renew his contract.

However, with their other two transfer targets - Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo - unlikely to leave Barcelona and Juventus, respectively, PSG are throwing all their efforts into keeping Mbappe at the club.

The Ligue 1 giants have already had a busy summer, bringing in Gianluigi Donnarumma, Sergio Ramos, and Georginio Wijnaldum on free transfers, and have money to spend on transfers as they look to challenge for the elusive Champions League title next season.
