Monaco reject Liverpool’s Mbappe bid

And so it begins, or perhaps just continues, for Monaco sensation Kylian Mbappe. Rumours have been swirling around the future of the star throughout his breakout Ligue 1 and Champions League campaigns, but Marca are now reporting an initial bid for the 18-year-old has already been rejected by the club.

The bidder in question was Liverpool, who reportedly lodged a €75 million offer that was quickly rebuffed by the principality club. Monaco president Dmitry Rybolovlev is thought to be holding out for a significantly higher fee, perhaps in the region of €100m, for his prized asset and has also suggested that, in a perfect world, Mbappe would spend one more season with the newly minted Ligue 1 champions.

Whether Monaco can keep Mbappe remains to be seen. Scorer of 15 goals in the French top flight — and a further six in the Champions League — Mbappe is reportedly enamoured by a potential move to Real Madrid. If Los Blancos come calling with a Galactico-sized offer, it could be one Rybolovlev just can’t refuse.
