Juventus are now plotting a shocking £361m transfer bid for Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe, MySportDab reports.
The new report comes as a huge blow for Real Madrid and Liverpool, who have showed interest in signing the Frenchman.
Kylian Mbappe will surely become the main topic of a bidding war next summer in 2021.
The French Star has around two years left on his contract at the club, and has already decided he won’t extend his contract.
But, Mbappe has told PSG chiefs that they must listen to offers for him next summer because he’s desperate for a new challenge.
Kylian Mbappe is already a player on Liverpool and Real Madrid shortlist.
Mbappe is widely known as the most valuable footballer in the world.
In 2017, PSG broke the world transfer record for a teenager when they paid AS Monaco £160m.
Now, According to Italian Newspaper Tuttosport, Juventus are ready to break the world transfer record to sign Mbappe next summer.
The current world record transfer fee is at £198m, which PSG paid in 2017 to sign Neymar from Barcelona.
Tuttosport claim that Juventus are now planning to develop funds of around €400m, so they can sign the 21-year-old.
However, their plans could be affected by Cristiano Ronaldo’s future.
The Portuguese man has two years left on his contract in Italy, and the 35-year-old earns over £500,000-per-week.
With Cristiano Ronaldo’s salary, Juventus might struggle to pay for Kylian Mbappe next summer.
Ronaldo has been previously linked with a move to PSG, and link up with the likes of Kylian Mbappe and Neymar at the Parc des Princes.
If Juventus want to sign Mbappe, they must sell off players on high salaries.

After Andrea Pirlo was appointed as Coach, he started clearing the squad and terminated Gonzalo Higuain’s contract.
Juventus also allowed Daniele Rugani, Douglas Costa, Mattia De Sciglio, and Blaise Matuidi to leave.
Now, Paulo Dybala could leave the club next summer amid links with Premier League club Chelsea.
Dybala’s contract expires in 2022, and could be sold next summer by Juve to avoid him leaving on a free transfer.
