Kylian Mbappe is the one star that AS Monaco aren’t particularly keen on selling. However, L’Equipe claim to know the figure at which Monaco could not refuse an offer. That figure is an insane €200 million.
Having already taken in €150 million in transfer fees this summer, Monaco are not short of a few bob. But the Ligue 1 champions want a buying club to make it worth their while if they’re to lose the jewel in their crown.
City move ahead
Real Madrid are the favourites to sign the 18-year-old although reports of an agreement with Monaco were premature. The French club rubbished those, giving fresh hope to Manchester City, who also want the forward.
In fact, L’Equipe claim that City have moved ahead in the race for Mbappe. As Pep Guardiola mentioned at a recent press conference, City can outspend Madrid. That seems like a key detail in a transfer race.
