Huge news coming from France regarding Mbappe’s future
Kylian Mbappe has reportedly decided to leave Monaco this summer.
AS Monaco sensation Kylian Mbappe, touted as one of the best young footballers of recent times, has been the subject of much speculation this summer with Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City and Arsenal – all were interested in snapping up the 18-year-old young prodigy. Since then Arsene Wenger has publicly declared Arsenal out of the battle and Monaco also issued an official notice stating unofficial tapping on Mbappe from some big clubs.
Although AS Monaco hoped to tie up Mbappe to a new deal, the Ligue 1 champions were informed by Real Madrid, Manchester City and PSG that they were ready to match the French club’s £180m valuation of Mbappe. Monaco ruled out any sale to their arch-rivals PSG keeping behind Madrid and City as the only two clubs in the fray.

Now, according to L’Equipe, Mbappe has decided to leave Monaco this summer and even ready to force his move away from the Stade Louis II.
Spanish giants Barcelona have also reportedly ready to go all out for Mbappe as Neymar’s departure to PSG is all but confirmed. Neymar’s sale would see Barcelona earning around £197m, enough to fund Mbappe’s buying.
The chances of a starting spot at Barcelona is more likely for Mbappe than at Manchester City or Real Madrid but he has reportedly set his heart on a move to the Santiago Bernabeu.
Mbappe helped Monaco winning the Ligue 1 title last season and also to reach the semi-finals of the UEFA Champions League. He has already been capped 4 times by the France National Team at such a tender age.
