Kylian Mbappe is the talk of the footballing world right now after his sensational rise to stardom at just 18 years old - and it has been revealed by a Monaco sporting director that the French starlet does have a release clause in his contract.
The likes of Real Madrid, Manchester United and Arsenal have all expressed an interest in the teenage striker, who has scored five Champions League goals this season - all of them coming in the knockout rounds.
In the aftermath of the 3-1 win over Borussia Dortmund, a game in which Mbappe scored yet again, Monaco sporting director Antonio Cordon told Cadena Ser that the Ligue 1 leaders are powerless with regards to holding on to their prized asset.
"I hope he stays for the good of Monaco, but we know how the market works and what football is like. He has a clause and it’s quite a lot of money. I don’t know exactly how much, but it’s a lot."
Real Madrid are the favourites to acquire the coveted signature but as of yet, Los Blancos are yet to make their move.
"The truth is they haven’t [made a bid]. I hope that Mbappe continues with us for a long time and gives us many great nights of football. He is a player that has had an important progression and has deserved it. He is going strong."
Mbappe has become the most sought-after player in Europe after a sensational campaign with the principality club, scoring 22 goals in all competitions.
