Race Hots Up As Kylian Mbappe Holds Out for AS Monaco Summer Exit


AS Monaco hot-shot Kylian Mbappe has hit the ground running last season alarming the host of European giants with his imposing form.

The total of 14 Ligue 1 goals and eight assists, with impressive displays through all competitions for French champions helped Mbappe gain plenty of admirers including Real Madrid who are seen as favourites to land the 18-year-old.

The Neymar saga, however, has pushed Barcelona in the mixture as well whereas it is the player himself who added fuel to the fire by reportedly informing AS Monaco about his desire to leave the Principality club this summer.

French media outlet L’Equipe suggests the French forward is holding out for a summer move as another big-money transfer is lurking on the horizon.
