Man Utd, Juventus alerted as Real Madrid target Mbappe plans PSG transfer demand

Europe's heavyweights are ready to pounce amid reports of Kylian Mbappe handing in a transfer request at PSG.

After a rumoured bust-up with manager Thomas Tuchel, a disappointing Champions League campaign along with the opportunity to work with Zinedine Zidane at Real, Mbappe is on the verge of leaving PSG.

And according to El Chiringuito, Mbappe is ready to push forward on a transfer after handing in a request to leave.

Real Madrid are favourites to land the Frenchman, though the likes of Juventus, Manchester United and Manchester City are also watching developments closely.

Tuchel has previously admitted he couldn't stop his stars from leaving the club this summer.

"As a coach, I do want them to continue, but this is football, we are not naive," Tuchel said.

"Many clubs want to transfer many players and the market is crazy, but if you ask me, the coach, yes, I want them here next season.

"But if they are not, we will find solutions."
