Kylian Mbappe refused to sign a new two-year deal with Paris Saint-Germain after the club rejected Real Madrid's tempting offer, Sport Bible.
The France international was keen on leaving Parc des Princes before the summer window got closed but PSG rejected Madrid's last offer.

Los Blancos had initially made bids of €160m and €170m in the week but the Ligue 1 club stood its ground.
PSG's new deal turn down by Mbappe
And now £38m annually salary after tax was dangled in front of Mbappe that could make him the richest player in the world but he turned it down.
The £742,413-per-week deal will be way more than what Lionel Messi and Neymar currently earn at the club.
However, with ten months left on Mbappe's deal, he does not seem to see his future playing in the French League.
The World Cup winner can now speak to other clubs six months to the end of his contract and sign a pre-agreement.
The transfer saga has not affected the 22-year-old in any way as he scored three goals in four matches, two of them coming in the last game against Reims.
Madrid's third bid on Mbappe
Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh had earlier reported that Real Madrid are not giving up on Kylian Mbappe yet as the Spanish giants are looking to make their third bid of €200million (£172m) with less than 24 hours to the deadline day, Daily Mail, L'Equipe.
According to reports from France, the offer could tempt Paris Saint-Germain into cashing in the Frenchman who has been a target for Los Blancos in the past few years.
A first bid of €160m (£137m) was made in the past week which was turned down by the French club and insisted on €220m (£188m).
