Real Madrid are 'seriously considering' a last gasp move for PSG's superstar Kylian Mbappe before the transfer window slams shut on Tuesday.
Mbappe has one year left on his PSG contract, and his future was thrown into doubt following the arrival of Lionel Messi.
However, the Frenchman was on the scoresheet for the Parisians on Sunday evening when they faced Stade de Reims.
But it was Messi who stole the headlines when he arrived as a second-half substitute to make his debut.
And, according to L'Equipe, the clash could have been Mbappe's last as Real Madrid look to secure his services.
The French outlet are reporting that Real are set to make a third and final offer for Mbappe with a £172million bid.
PSG have already rebuffed two offers of €160m (£137m) and €170m (£145m) plus €10m (£9m) in add-ons.
However, PSG rejected both bids, and their president, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, according to Sportsmail, said: "Our position is clear. We will not change it or repeat it."
The Parisians are keen to keep Mbappe despite the possibility of losing him on a free next summer.

Carlo Ancelotti kept his cards close to his chest when discussing Mbappe during a press conference on Friday.
"Mbappe's case is a matter for those in charge of the club, I cannot say anymore.
"I think only about coaching the team, preparing for the game and managing the players well.
"Everything that the politics of football entails, it does not matter to me.
"He [Mbappe] is a great player but I think we have great players here too. We have to give everything so they can show their qualities."
