The transfer saga going on about Monaco teenage sensation might just have taken a new dimension with reports suggesting that Madrid are back in the for the French international.
After freeing their wage bill, Real now have enough cash to splash on the youngster. Alvaro Morata, James Rodriguez and Danilo all left for huge some of money which makes it easier to get the French international.
According to reports in the Sun, the 18 –years-old is close to joining Real Madrid and that both parties have agreed a world record fee of £120m for the talented youngster.
The Sun also claimed that the La Liga giants always intended to sign Kylian Mbappé but needed to sell a couple of players to balance the books first. Now that the clear out has been done, it’s now easier to go all out for the French international.
The news about Mbappe moving have been on the low for a while now because most of the clubs that signify interest have all pull out of the race. And also Monaco last week reported top European clubs to Uefa accusing them of seeing the boy unofficially.
Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger conceded that they could not sign the player this summer. Now that Madrid is back in the race, it will be interesting to see if Monaco can keep the player after losing several of their players this summer.
