Monaco confident over Mbappe stay

Monaco believe they will hold on to star striker Kylian Mbappe this summer, and have already rejected bids of over £100million for him.

Real Madrid are understood to have lodged an offer of £103million – which was rejected, whilst Arsenal, Bayern Munich and Inter Milan are believed to have had verbal offers shunned, which would have broken their own transfer records.

Borussia Dortmund and Manchester City have also registered their interest, and it is clear Monaco and Mbappe will have their pick of options – as and when they part ways.

Over the weekend their chief Vadim Vasilyev insisted they have no plans to let him go and he told the Daily Telegraph: “The plan is to do everything to prolong him (Mbappe) and to do everything that he stays a minimum one more year with us.”

“We will, although that will depend, of course, also on the player. We will make an offer to prolong his contract and hopefully he will accept and stay with us. I think in the month of June, before the season starts.”

French sources have told me that Mbappe is more than happy to stay for another 12-months with Monaco, with one eye on the World Cup next summer, as he does not want to risk missing out on a place in Russia.

Mbappe has been one of the stand-out performers in European football this season and helped Monaco win the Ligue 1 title, and also to the Champions League semi-finals.

Monaco are set to sell some players this summer, but Mbappe has been told that they will re-invest and back manager Leonardo Jardim.

Bookmakers are currently backing Mbappe to remain at Monaco with SkyBet listing him at 11/10 to still be in the Principality next season.
