Monaco Rejects Real Madrid’s £103 Million World Record Bid for Kylian Mbappe

French Champions AS Monaco have turned down a £103 Million bid from Real Madrid for sensational 18-year-old French striker, Kylian Mbappe.

According to the Daily Sun, the Los Blancos submitted an offer in the last few days that would blow Paul Pogba’s £89 million transfer deal – from Juventus to Manchester United – out of the water.

Mbappe is widely regarded as football’s brightest prospects after leading Monaco to its first League title in 17 years and a champions League Semi-Final spot in his breakout season.

His 26 strikes in all competitions have so far seen him win French best Young player in his breakout season and attracting interest from all over Europe.

Asked specifically about Mbappe’s offer, Monaco’s vice president and Chief Executive Vadim Vasilyev, persistently refused to comment on the negotiations with Madrid claiming confidentiality.

He, however, confirmed that the French champions have other plans for their wonder kid and hope he will agree to a new deal after making it clear they have no intention of letting him go this summer.

Vasilyev said.

On whether Monaco will continue to turn down bids, Vasilyev’s reply was imminent.

“Yes. We will. Although, that will depend of course on the player. We will make an offer to prolong his contract and hopefully, he will accept and stay with us. I think in the month of June or before the season starts.

“He will definitely be one of the top players in the world. He has everything to succeed. He has the skill, the technique, the speed, the mentality, the competitive spirit. He also has a great family that surrounds him. He has all the ingredients to be a world-class success,” he added.

A move to Real Madrid would be a game changer for the teenager but he has continued to insist that he will only discuss his future after the international fixtures with France.
