Real Madrid are set to reignite interest in French international and Monaco forward Kylian Mbappe, according to Spanish outlet AS.

The 18-year-old, who has been crucial in Monaco’s domestic season, has attracted a lot of clubs this season such as Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Manchester City.

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane is a huge fan of the 18-year-old and tried to sign the young talent previously, but the Spanish giants failed to reach an agreement with the Frenchman and the forward decided to join Ligue 1 side Monaco.

However, reports in France are suggesting that the Spanish giants would have to fork out a huge £80 million for the Frenchman’s signature in the summer.

The Frenchman has made a total of 21 Ligue 1 appearances for Monaco this season, scoring a total of 11 goals.

The forward has helped Monaco to the top of the Ligue 1 table this campaign.
