Paris Saint-Germain On The Verge Of Capturing Highly Rated Monaco Duo
French giants Paris Saint-Germain seem to be very close to complete the signing of AS Monaco duo Kylian Mbappe and Fabinho, as per reports.
PSG, who lost the Ligue 1 title last season to Monaco, are keen to make a very strong comeback in both domestic and European competition. Having already captured Neymar from La Liga heavyweights Barcelona in a world record transfer of €222m (£199m), PSG boss Unai Emery seems set to bring in more firepower before the season kicks-off.
According to the Daily Record, the duo that played a major role in Monaco’s outstanding title-winning campaign, as well as helped the club reach the semi-finals of the Champions League, seems to be the next priority target for the Ligue 1 runner-ups.
It was reported that the Parisian club is closer than ever to wrapping up the deals for both Kylian Mbappe and Fabinho, with the young striker supposedly set to cost them €180m (£163m) alone.

The 18-year-old Frenchman is currently one of the hottest properties in Europe, with the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona reportedly pursuing him. Fabinho, on the other hand, is thought to be a major target for Premier League clubs Man City and Man Utd.
Mbappe, who has been heavily linked with Real over the past couple of months, wants regular playing time, and Los Blancos are likely to find it difficult to provide him that, with the likes of Bale, Benzema, Ronaldo, and Isco in their ranks.
