It is not an exaggeration to declare that Kylian Mbappe is currently the hottest football property in Europe if not the world. For a player, born just outside the new millennium, still playing for the French U-19 and only made his senior team debut for Monaco in Dec 2015 to be commanding a valuation in the region of £100m is absolutely outrageous, but his 2016/17 champions league and domestic league performances perhaps justify the frenzies for the French-born player.
Monaco would be making an astronomical profit on him should they choose to sell but if they decide to hold onto him they must be ambitious beyond just competing in the French league.
With the likes of Real Madrid and the two Manchester clubs circling and ready to snap him up, it will take more than a strong will and Champions League ambition to hold onto him. Although Arsenal FC appeared to be interested following Wenger’s two-year new contract, but a war chest of just £100m to strengthened the whole squad if the reports are true would not be enough to close the deal, thus we can safely say that Arsenal are not in the race to sign the player they should have signed for under £500k last year. In Wenger’s defence, buying loads of 17yr olds and hoping one of them will blow is the type of model he has been criticised for over the years.
Mbappe’s ambitions should play a role, playing for a big club like Madrid must be on his wish list? Or dream? Or playing in England? Surely his ambitions will go beyond the shores of the French League?
What about his agent? Surely, it will be in his agent utmost wishes and interest for Mbappe to move so he can earn a bumper agency fee?
Whatever happens at the end of the transfer window whether he stays at Monaco or he move on to another club except to Arsenal, of course, he will be one of the most talked about and you can trust us to bring the stories to you
