Monaco have rejected a €100m bid from English side Liverpool for their wonderkid Kylian Mbappe according to reports from Spain.
Spanish tabloid Marca which is one of the leading Spanish publications, claim that a substantial bid from the Reds was turned down by the French club.
The 18-year-old Monaco forward is one of Europe’s most sought-after players this summer, with interest from clubs all over the continent.
Liverpool, we know, would take the 18-year-old in a heartbeat. But Marca claim that Jurgen Klopp has firmed up his interest with a ‘second bid’ of €100m (£88m).
The report insists, however, that: “Dmitri Rybolovlev, owner of the Ligue 1 team, doen’t seem to have much intention of selling his striker and in any event, has always maintained that the starting price will go beyond the 114m euros that Manchester United paid for Paul Pogba last summer.”
It states that Monaco are more than happy to keep Mbappe if he wishes to stay, and that the player has told Rybolovlev that the only club he would leave the principality for is Real Madrid.
