The father of Kylian Mbappe is due to hold talks with Monaco over a new contract for his son.

  • Reports insist about a new Arsenal bid
  • Arsene Wenger said there is no bid and expects the player to stay at Monaco

The English press hasn’t quite accepted that Arsenal aren’t signing Kylian Mbappe yet. They’re still persisting with stories of the Gunners making fresh bids of ever-increasing intervals above £100m, despite Wenger himself denying any bid was made.

In his comments while on tour in Australia, Wenger said that he expects Mbappe will stay at Monaco. According to reports, the player’s father is set to make that happen.

Mbappe’s father, Wilfried, is due to meet Monaco’s president Dmitry Rybolovlev to discuss a new contract for his son. Monaco have been adamant that Mbappe will not be let go easily, and have so far resisted the likes of Arsenal, Real Madrid and PSG.

Mbappe himself doesn’t appear to be pushing to leave and has happily returned to pre-season training ahead of the upcoming campaign.
