There has been no official winner of the summer transfer window’s most hotly contested fight as yet, but it is looking almost certain that the France international star Kylian Mbappe will be signing for one of the big clubs around Europe and waving goodbye to his current side AS Monaco.
In fact, as reported by Metro, the 18-year old has all but confirmed this himself by admitting that he is does not know if he will stay with the Ligue 1 outfit. In football terms that is like a declaration of his intention to leave.
The same report also carries the story about Arsene Wenger sitting down with the sought after young striker for three hours recently in an attempt to persuade Mbappe that Arsenal was his best option, but I doubt that the boss would have gone as far as guaranteeing Mbappe that he would play all the time.
Apparently the big spending oil rich French champions PSG have done that and they are also offering a huge salary of almost £1 million a month and I do not think Wenger would match that for a teenager no matter how good he is. So if this is true have PSG just won the race to sign Mbappe instead of Arsenal?
