Serie A giants Juventus is ready to rival Real Madrid for the services of Paris Saint Germain attacker Kylian Mbappe.
Reports from AS claim that Los Blancos have a plan in place to sign the Frenchman next summer and build their future around him but PSG is not willing to sell one of their most prized assets.
In Italy, Tuttosport state that Juventus have also made Mbappé a priority of their own as they see him as a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo.
It is a story that was also backed up by comments from several club members at Juve’s board meeting on Thursday, where they committed to a capital increase of €300m over the next four years.
“Our next aim is to bring in the next Cristiano Ronaldo, but younger,” Paolo Aicardi, chairman of the club’s shareholders’ association, stated.
Juventus vice-chairman Pavel Nedved also suggested that they were willing to make another big signing.
“Could we make a new €100m signing? We’re always ready for that,” the Juventus vice-chairman said.
Mbappé is currently valued by PSG at €300m and it will take an enormous effort from clubs willing to acquire his services.
