Kylian Mbappe

Monaco slap down Kylian Mbappe, Arsenal & Man United rumours

Is Kylian Mbappe signing for Real Madrid?

Despite having sold a slew of players for big money this summer, Monaco remain in the spotlight.

The likes of Bernardo Silva, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Benjamin Mendy have all left the Ligue 1 champions, yet the big clubs are still sniffing around Monaco’s best players.

Monaco’s undoubted jewel right now is Kylian Mbappe and the media have gone into overdrive about the young France striker.

Vasilyev: “There is no agreement with a club”

On Tuesday, Marca reported that Monaco and Real Madrid had agreed a 180 million euro deal for Mbappe.

Today, Monaco Vice President Vadim Vasilyev has come out publicly and denied any agreement with Real Madrid for Mbappe.

Vasilyev: “I assure you there is no agreement with a club. We have very great demand for Mbappé. He’s the biggest prospect in world football. We are discussing an extension with Kylian. I hope we’ll get there.”

Vasilyev on Arsenal & Man United rumours

Besides Mbappe, Vasilyev also touched upon some of the rumours involving his players who have been linked with Arsenal and Manchester United.

Thomas Lemar continues to be linked with Arsenal and today there are reports in England that the Gunners have made a third bid.

Meanwhile, Fabinho has been on Manchester United’s radar all summer and is considered a player Jose Mourinho should sign by many Red Devils fans.

Vasilyev shut down the rumours linking Manchester United and Arsenal by saying: “Fabinho and Lemar are essential players, they will stay with us.”

Vasilyev on Neymar

Besides discussing targets of Real Madrid, Manchester United and Arsenal, Vasilyev also talked about Neymar’s potential move to PSG.

Vasilyev: “I think it would be a good think for Neymar to play in Ligue 1. It would be good for France. It will be difficult to defend the title. We know who will be the favourites but we are ambitious.”
