Mbappe at Monaco 'for one more year'

Rio Ferdinand

"He really tackled him hard, you could see he went for him and wanted to ruin his confidence."

"He has a clause and it's quite a lot of money".

France worldwide Mbappe has enjoyed a breakout season, scoring 22 goals - including five in four Champions League knockout games - and has reportedly attracted interest from a number of top sides.

Monaco of France have booked their spot in the Champions League semifinals after defeating German side Borussia Dortmund 3-1 in their second leg quarterfinal tie which sealed them a 6-3 aggregate victory.

But Giuly, who had two spells at Monaco, reaching the final of Europe's elite competition in 2004, has called for the hype around Mbappe to be calmed ahead of a second full senior campaign. "I don't know how many offers there are for him".

Silva was rough the young talent, so much so that Mbappe was close to tears at full-time.

That being said, Rodriguez may be willing to accept a minor cut in order to bring an end to his Real Madrid tenure, which has seen the Colombia global score 31 goals in 105 appearances, per Transfermarkt.

Asked whether Real, who could face Monaco in the last four, had contacted him about Mbappe, Cordon told Cadena Ser radio: "The truth is they haven't".

Real Madrid have been linked with the teenager but the Spanish giants are yet to make an approach, according to Monaco's sporting director Antonio Cordon. "But I hope he stays for the good of Monaco, but we know how the market works and what football is like".

"Only time will tell [if he has what it takes to succeed at a club like Real Madrid]".

"It's one to watch and it will be a big talking point over the summer".
