Real Madrid targeting Kylian Mbappe from Monaco

Potentially, the signing of the summer would be that of Kylian Mbappe moving from Monaco to Real Madrid, or any other team who will stump up £100 million.

Speaking to Canal+ after the France vs England friendly international, the 18-year-old said that the Madrid club had been in contact with him since he was 14 years old.

“I’m going to go away with the family and we’ll think about what’s going to happen.”

“We have to sort it out, see what happens with the club too, because I am under contract with [Monaco], I am not free. We’ll see what’s happening.”

Mbappe has said on record of his need for first team football, his other requisite is to play in Europe’s premium competition the Champions League.

Los Blancos could face opposition in the deal with Arsenal, Liverpool and French giants Paris Saint Germain all interested in the young French starlet.
