Barcelona have made ‘renewed contact’ for French superstar Kylian Mbappe and are already lining up a big name replacement for Neymar who is close to finalising a world record move to Paris Saint-Germain.

The Spanish giants are preparing to splash out a large chunk of the mammoth fee they will receive from Neymar’s move and want a quality replacement.

Mbappe is one of the most sought-after forwards in Europe following his superb season for Monaco which saw them win the Ligue 1 title.

The teenage striker has attracted strong interest from Real Madrid while Manchester United have also been linked with his signature.
