Monaco forward Kylian Mbappe has not received any offers from Manchester United as rumours have suggested.
The French sensation is all set to represent Monaco against Juventus on Wednesday in Turin, in their Champions League first leg semi-final.
The 18-year-old has been in scintillating form this season, which has helped lead his side into the Champions League last four. Of the 24 goals he has scored this season, 5 have come in the competition.
Thanks to his terrific displays, incoming reports from Italy have been suggesting that the Red Devils have already made a £72m bid for Mbappe, which had been rejected by the Ligue 1 outfit.
These rumours have since been labelled as untrue by Sky Sports, but the forward remains on the target list of many top European clubs.
Arsenal manager Arsenal Wenger admitted that he would want to sign the youngster in the summer. He conceded, however, that the Gunners would be outbid by richer clubs.
“Obviously it would be hypocritical and a lie to say that we are not looking at him,” Wenger told French broadcaster SFR Sport.
“But he’s already in the bracket of clubs who are, perhaps, much better financed than us.”
