Kylian Mbappe’s proposed transfer to Real Madrid this month is called off after Paris Saint-Germain did not respond to the Spanish team’s final offer.
Real were ready to pay £ 189m (€ 220m) to sign Mbappe but walked away after PSG blocked the deal.
Real will now focus on signing a pre-contract deal with Mbappe in January to allow him to move to the Bernabeu for a free transfer next season.
The 22-year-old’s contract with PSG expires at the end of the current campaign and he has made it clear to the club that he has no plans to extend the deal.
Mbappe’s dream is to play for Real, who signed French international teammate Eduardo Camavinga from Rennes on Tuesday to a six-year contract worth up to € 40million (£ 34.4million).
PSG sporting director Leonardo said last week that Mbappe wanted to leave, but that they would not sell him in the last week of the window and that they would not sell him for less than his market value.
He joined PSG from Ligue 1 rivals Monaco in 2017 and won three French titles and three French cups with the team.
Mbappe was also part of the France team which won the World Cup in Russia in 2018.
