Kylian Mbappe explains what will determine summer move

Kylian Mbappe explains what will determine summer move

Monaco president Dmitry Rybolovlev insists he won't stand in the way of players that wish to join the likes of Manchester United this summer.

Mbappe made his senior debut for France earlier this year and is likely to be included in Didier Deschamps' squad for next summer's World Cup in Russian Federation.

French Ligue 1 champions, AS Monaco have turned down a world record fee of around 120 million Euros (103 million pounds) from Spanish giants, Real Madrid for teenage striker, Kylian Mbappe.

Mbappe has taken French and European football by storm this season, winning Ligue 1's Young Player of the Year as Monaco claimed the league for the first time since 2000.

Fabinho, Tiemoue Bakayoko, Bernardo Silva and Radamel Falcao have also been touted as potential summer departures from the Stade Louis II, with the first three reportedly interesting Premier League clubs and Falcao mooted as a recruit for Chinese sides. "If he wants to leave then we'll discuss it", he said.

"This club [Monaco] has given me all its confidence, I need to give back a title at least".

"We are not Real Madrid or Barcelona or Manchester".

We never go against the trends, against the tide, and we never force things. Given there is plenty to sort out even if he has decided he wants to leave, I think we can hold onto our nuts (if you want, and if you have them) until something more concrete occurs.

"Both [will decide on a contract extension], but in the end it will be rather him", he said.

The last couple of years have seen Monaco lose several star players as a result of the financial struggles that have surrounded the principality club.

Monaco, who already benefit from lenient tax laws, are known to have significant funds which mean the club are not forced to sell their best players.
