We haven't agreed to let Kylian Mbappe go, claims Monaco chief


By Staff Reporter

Monaco vice-president Vadim Vasilyev insists no agreement has been reached with any club for the sale of Kylian Mbappe.

Real Madrid are reportedly willing to pay a record £161m to land the 18-year-old France striker, one of the hottest properties in football.

But speaking yesterday, Vasilyev said Monaco have accepted no bids and are hoping he will agree a new contract.

"I assure you that there is no agreement with a club," Vasilyev said. "We are discussing a (contract) extension with Kylian. I hope that we will get there."

A host of top sides have been linked with the teenage star, although it is understood Manchester City are not interested.

Last week, Monaco threatened to report "important'' European clubs to Fifa for making contact with Mbappe without consent.
