Monaco have slapped a monstrous £130million price-tag on French starlet Kylian Mbappe to ward off interest from Europe’s elite clubs.
Mbappe, 19, is currently enjoying a productive season with Monaco, scoring 19 goals in 32 total appearances so far for the Ligue 1 club.
His performances and goals have helped Monaco top Ligue 1 and also guide them through to the quarter-final stage of the Champions League, whilst also earning a recent call-up to the France national team.
It’s understood that a number of top European clubs are now eyeing up the French starlet, including Manchester United, Arsenal, Real Madrid, Chelsea, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain.
The Daily Star Sunday now claim Monaco’s Russian owner Dmitry Rybolovely will only consider selling Mbappe, who has been dubbed ‘the new Thierry Henry’, if a club offer the French club a whopping £130million for his services.
Some of the reported interested clubs will be willing to fork out such a fee for Mbappe, but Arsenal don’t look likely to be one of them. And should the likes of Real, Barca and PSG be keen, the Gunners will have a hard time acquiring the teenager’s services.
