Monaco receiving world-record offers for Kylian Mbappe
For several years now Paris Saint Germain has dominated French football, and rightfully so, however, it’s Monaco’s turn to potentially not only win Ligue 1 but also make a realistic run at the UEFA Champions League title.
Much of the team’s success of late can be attributed to Kylian Mbappe, arguably the most exciting player in all of Europe.
According to Yahoo Sport UK, Monaco has received several bids in excess of $138 million for Mbappe, which would shatter the current record transfer fee set forth by Manchester United when the Red Devils acquired Paul Pogba last summer for over $111 million.
Real Madrid and Manchester City are reportedly the favorites at the moment to acquire the exciting teenager, but it has been said that there are a plethora of clubs seeking to lure Mbappe away from the Stade Louis II.
The 18-year-old Frenchman has scored 21 goals in all competitions this season for the French leaders, and more importantly, Mbappe has turned on his scoring prowess at the right time.
The youngster has netted 15 of those 21 finishes since February, including Wednesday’s brace against Borussia Dortmund in their UCL first leg encounter.
Mbappe signed a three-year contract with Monaco back in March 2016, however, the club would likely have to increase his wages drastically in order to keep him away from Europe’s giants.
