Mbappe Insists He ‘Is Not Afraid To Leave’ Monaco As Man City Distance Themselves From ‘£113.5m Bid’

Published on:

Kylian Mbappe said that he is “not afraid to leave” Monaco after Premier League giants cooled down their interest in him following a reported £113.5million bid to rope in the French teen sensation.

Foottheball sources reveal that Real Madrid and Manchester United are also keen on securing the signatures of the France striker, who wants regular game-time wherever he goes.

However, before deciding upon his future, the Monaco wonder-kid would listen to the advice of Didier Deschamps.

The extremely talented forward is now on international duty ahead of games against Paraguay, Sweden and England and will hold talks with the former World Cup winner.

He accentuated that Deschamps words will influence his decision but reiterated that he is not afraid to part ways with the club that made him a star.

Mbappe said: “Why play less? I’ll have time to reflect on that and no, I’m not afraid to leave.”

“The advice of [Deschamps] counts. That will not guide my choice, but it will count.”

“I do not think I will go to his office to ask. But there’s plenty of time to think about all this. There are important matches for Frances.”

Man Utd have launched a £73.5m bid for Mbappe, according to FoottheBall sources.

Sources also reveal that the Man City bosses have now cooled down their interest in him following a reported £113.5million bid to rope in the French teen sensation.

And Mbappe also dashed Real Madrid’s hopes of possible summer transfer.

He added: “I dreamed of Zidane the player, not the coach.”

“Zidane the player made me dream and still makes me dream when I watch videos of him.”

“The coach is completely different, he is a great coach who has quickly achieved results and continues to develop.”
