- Real Madrid are ready to swoop for Kylian Mbappe or Neymar from PSG
- The French champions are being investigated for breaching FFP regulations
- PSG may be forced to sell one of their two big-money signings if found guilty
- Long-time admirers Real would be ready to swoop in if that is the case

Real Madrid are ready to pounce if PSG are forced to sell Neymar or Kylian Mbappe due to Financial Fair Play restrictions.
PSG’s acquisition of the two players for huge sums of money – £200m for Neymar and £165m for Mbappe – is being investigated by UEFA and the stiffest punishment would be exclusion from the Champions League.
But Real have been long-time admirers of both Neymar and Mbappe, are keeping a close eye on the situation and are ready to take one of them off their hands if they need to make a quick sale, according to Spanish newspaper AS.

KYLIAN MBAPPE’S SEASON SO FAR
Red cards: 1
NEYMAR’S SEASON SO FAR
Red cards: 0
PSG have previously been investigated over FFP, but the latest set of leaks from German magazine Der Speigel have thrown the French giants back into the spotlight.
While they would want to keep both their superstars if possible, missing out on the Champions League is unthinkable for the Ligue Une champions.
Real are looking to strengthen their squad and bring in a big name following the sale of Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus in the summer
UEFA are reportedly ready to investigate PSG again for breaching FFP regulations
Neymar is more likely than Mbappe to make the move, despite being a statement signing when he moved from Barcelona – Real’s great rivals – in the summer of 2017.
Mbappe is from Paris, was the face of France’s World Cup win and is the fan favourite at Parc des Princes.
Neymar, meanwhile, was hotly tipped with a move to Real in the summer and has never fully settled in Paris.
He missed the final three months of last season with a fractured metatarsal, but PSG cruised to the league title without him.
Although he has scored more goals than Mbappe in less games since they arrived at PSG in the summer of 2017, the teenager has stepped up this season and they have both scored 13 times already this campaign, despite Mbappe’s three-game ban for a red card.
