Arguably the hottest name in this summer’s transfer market could be delaying his exit for at least another year.

According to Le Parisen, Kylian Mbappe and his parents are set to speak with the AS Monaco management staff about an extension, dousing the rumors of his potential departure to the likes of Real Madrid, Chelsea or Manchester United.

The report claims that Monaco has received transfer bids for Mbappe of more than $112 million, but Monaco has rejected each bid.

Mbappe is currently training with the French National Team ahead of a World Cup qualifying match at Sweden on Friday and a friendly match at home against England next Tuesday. Mbappe was an unused substitute in France’s 5-0 demolition of Paraguay last Friday.

Here’s a look at more transfer news around the Premier League and Europe:


Man United Morata bid rejected

With Zlatan Ibrahimovic still recovering from a torn ACL and ever aging, Manchester United are looking to bring in an experienced European striker to help the club take a step forward.

Manchester United has had an offer for Real Madrid’s Alvaro Morata rejected, according to a report from Sky Sport Italia. The reported offer was solely for Morata and didn’t include David De Gea going in the other direction.

The report claims that Real Madrid won’t accept an offer for less than $116 million.

Allegri signs new contract

Coming off a UEFA Champions League final appearance, Juventus has rewarded the manager who helped the club get there.

Juventus announced that it has signed Massimiliano Allegri to a new three-year contract worth around $9 million per season, according to Gazzetta Dello Sport. Juventus did not disclose terms of the contract.

Under Allegri, Juventus has won three Serie A titles, three Coppa Italia titles and the Italian Super Cup.
