Reports in France have suggested Real are prepared to make Mbappe the world's most expensive football surpassing the £89m Manchester United - who are also keeping tabs on the striker - paid for compatriot Paul Pogba.

Morata has been heavily linked with a move away from the Champions League winners after only 14 LaLiga stars under Zinedine Zidane last season.

Perez confirmed that Ronaldo was very angry about the tax allegations he faced.

He also said: "We haven't spoken because we were on the deadline for [presidential] nominations and I wanted to be respectful, but I am convinced we will talk and we will solve it".

Ronaldo, 32, appears to be heading for the Real Madrid exit this summer following a high-profile tax dispute, and it had been claimed that Bayern were preparing to pursue the Portugal captain ahead of the 2017-18 campaign. We will wait until the tournament ends and then we will see the extent of everything that has been written. "We are happy. I read there is an agreement for €75million, but there is nothing".
