Real Madrid have reportedly made a second bid for PSG star Kylian Mbappe.
The La Liga giants have been linked with a move for the Frenchman in recent weeks and have now made a bid of £145million, according to Sky Sports.
Madrid had made an initial offer of £137million, which was rejected by PSG on Tuesday evening.
But they are keen to secure a move for the 22-year-old, who PSG paid Monaco £160million for in 2018 (€180m).
Sky add that PSG have only paid €145m for Mbappe so far with another €35m due when they renew his contract or sell the forward.
Earlier this week, PSG chief Leonardo said: “Kylian Mbappe wants to join Real Madrid and we will not hold him back. We said no to Madrid’s first offer but if our conditions are met, we’ll see.
“We’ll allow it but on our conditions. Kylian always promised us he will not leave for free.
“It seems like a strategy from Madrid to try to get a ‘no’ from us, to show that they have tried everything and to wait for a year to get him for free."
PSG are eager to keep hold of Mbappe having signed Lionel Messi this summer, and want to tie the World Cup winner down to a new contract.
Leonardo added: "We are not preparing anything on the market at the moment. He has another year on his contract, we want to extend him.
"We have never thought about a Plan B. We have created a very positive atmosphere. We are not going to let anyone change that.
"Our aim, is to extend his contract and keep him. But if a player wants to leave, that is on our terms, that goes not only for Kylian, but for all the players."
