Monaco are reportedly ready to offer 18-year-old striker, Kylian Mbappe, a shiny new deal to deter him from signing for Arsenal or Real Madrid this summer.

Mbappe has been heavily linked with a move away from Monaco this summer with both Arsenal and Real Madrid said to have made mega-offers ranging from £87m to £95m. Manchester United are the latest team to be linked with the starlet having supposedly made a £113m bid themselves.
The highly rated youngster’s impressive 2016/17 season, which saw him score 15 Ligue 1 goals and assist 11 in 29 appearances, means that Monaco are reluctant to let him leave and are therefore allegedly set to offer him a new deal.
With Mbappe ‘only’ on around £24k-per-week at the moment, the French side are going to have to significantly increase the teenager’s wages if they’re going to have any hope of competing with the likes of Real, United, or even Arsenal.
Saying that, the player has previously said he’s happy at Monaco for the time being.
The France international looks set to become the most expensive player of all time. Should Monaco pull out all the stops to keep him or just cash in now?
