Kylian Mbappe’s proposed move to Real Madrid this month is off after Paris Saint-Germain failed to respond to the Spanish side’s final offer.

Real were willing to pay more than £189m (€220m) to sign Mbappe, but walked away after PSG stalled on the deal.

PSG signed Mbappe from Monaco in 2018 in a €180m deal (£166m at the time) but in actual fact, they have so far paid only €145m (£124m) to the Ligue 1 side for the France international.

Another €35m (£30m) will be due when the club renews Mbappe’s deal, which expires in the summer of 2022, or decides to sell him.
