Kylian Mbappe only wants Real Madrid move

Kylian Mbappe only wants Real Madrid move

According to, Real Madrid and AS Monaco met to discuss the former's interest in teenage sensation Kylian Mbappe although the Ligue 1 club doesn't want to sell.

But Petit, who played for Monaco between 1988 and 1997, emphasised the relatively short time the exciting youngster has been playing first-team football and suggested a move could be detrimental to his development.

The France star impressed for Monaco last season, helping them beat Paris St-Germain to the Ligue 1 title.

It is also claimed that Arsenal are facing stiff competition from Real Madrid for the signature of the 18-year-old, with the Spanish side said to have already tabled a £118m bid for Mbappe.

Mbappe has been linked with a number of other clubs around Europe, including Arsenal and Liverpool, but the France global has his heart set on a move to the Bernabeu, according to Spanish newspaper Marca.

Ronaldo, unhappy at Madrid because of a perceived lack of support over his battle with Spanish tax authorities, could yet leave the Bernabeu this summer - with Manchester United and Paris Saint-Germain both interested in signing the Ballon d'Or victor.

"He is aware of his qualities, he is aware he is just 18 years old so he has a good opportunity at Monaco because it is a lovely city, and a world-class academy".

"But everything moves fast in football".

"Of course, the economic part is important but I think with time things happen naturally".

"I think he still has to prove his qualities with Monaco, even if he will have the last word".
