The most wanted teenager in world football has laid out his demand to the suitors – Kylian Mbappe is adamant that he won’t settle for a rotation role with any club in the world.
Kylian Mbappe is the talk of the football town, with interest from virtually every single European heavyweight. The Monaco wonderkid has world at his feet after a stupendous campaign in Ligue 1 and Champions League. Across various competitions, the French youngster has amassed an impressive 26 goals for the season with 8 assists.
If reports are to be believed, Manchester United and Real Madrid have failed to sign the 18-year-old, even with mammoth bids. The Red Devils are reported to have made a failed £85 million bid, which is dwarfed by the colossal £103 million bid by Real Madrid – also failed.
Totally unfazed by the the mega money bids for him, the Monaco forward has come out with enlightening thoughts on his future, as he recently told beIN Sports: “I will make a choice based on my sporting career, and my career is first and foremost. I am at an age where I need to play, and that will be paramount.”
The French international then went on to warn interested clubs that he won’t be lured by big money offers solely.
“I’m not 35 or 36, an age where I have to manage [my body]. I still have everything to learn – this year was discovery, and now comes the most important step: confirmation. I will be the sole decision-maker, and I will not go anywhere where I will be forced to go,” he exclaimed.
Clubs like Manchester United, Real Madrid, Chelsea, PSG, and Arsenal are said to be very keen on the Monaco player, and will try their best to lure him away from the newly crowned Ligue 1 Champions this summer.
