PSG reportedly set the asking price for Kylian Mbappe afterwards real Madrid They intensified their attempts to contract with the young star.
Real have long wanted Mbappe, with club president Florentino Perez wanting to make him a classic Galactico player.
PSG embarked on a recruiting wave this summer, signing Lionel Messi, Gianluigi Donnarumma, Ginny Wijnaldum, Sergio Ramos and Achraf Hakimi, and had hoped to tie Mbappe to a new contract.
However, the 22-year-old has entered the final 12 months of his deal and appears unlikely to renew his terms with the French giants.
That opened the door for Real who tried to sign the youngster on two separate occasions and is now determined to make him lucky for the third time.

according to ESPN Perez took his first step, making an offer worth 137 million pounds (160 million euros) for Mbappe’s services.
This opening offer was turned down by PSG, but after having previously been held back by Real Madrid, the Parisian club has finally shown its willingness to negotiate.
With Mbappe not keen to sign a new contract, PSG have for the first time enjoyed the prospect of selling one of their top players, but they will only do so if their assessment is met.
The report states that Real will have to raise their bid to 171 million pounds (200 million euros) in order to have a chance to complete the signing before the August 31 deadline.
Mbappe joined Paris Saint-Germain from Monaco in August 2017 on an initial loan deal, which became permanent for a fee of £160 million (€180 million).
He went on to score 112 goals in 122 appearances for the club and formed a killer partnership with Neymar up front.

However, with his contract running out and Messi arriving at the expiration of his contract with BarcelonaMbappe’s future has become even more questionable.
Mbappe came close to joining Real twice in the past, having tried at the club as a 13-year-old in 2012 and almost opted to join him from Monaco instead of Paris Saint-Germain.
Like all clubs, Real have been hit financially before Corona Virus A pandemic, but it is still in a position to compete for Mbappe.
That’s because they haven’t signed any first-team signings in the past two years and have been siphoning off valuable cash with sales from Raphael Varane and Martin Odegaard this summer.
