Arsenal target Mbappe reveals Real have been trying to sign him since he was 14

Date Posted,June 13, 2017

Kylian Mbappe will ponder his future with his family over the summer as some of Europe’s top club vie for his signature.

The 18-year-old starred for France in their 3-2 win over England on Tuesday night, despite spending most of the second half with 10 men.

Now the Monaco starlet’s focus turns to his future, which will be decided on holiday with his nearest and dearest.

While Real Madrid are said to be in the box seat, Arsenal are reportedly willing to make a bid in excess of £100m for the teenager.

In a major blow to the Gunners and Arsene Wenger, who will have to battle it out in the Europa League this season, Mbappe has described the Champions League as ‘an obsession’.

After Tuesday night’s match, Mbappe admitted he is open to a move – provided terms can be agreed with Monaco.

“We’re going to go away with the family and we’ll think about what’s going to happen,” he said.

“We have to sort it out, see what happens with the club too, because I’m under contract with a club, I’m not free. We’ll see what’s happening.”

While Arsenal have had their eye on Mbappe for a lengthy period, Real Madrid have been known to him for years.

“Real Madrid? They have been trying to recruit me since I was 14,” he said.
