Kylian Mbappé hands in transfer request amid Real Madrid & Barcelona links

Kylian Mbappé hands in transfer request amid Real Madrid & Barcelona links”

But this is where things begin to get interesting as French newspaper L'Équipe is reporting that Monaco wonderkid Kylian Mbappe has informed the club that he wants to leave and that Barcelona are potentially looking at him.

After seeing the likes of Benjamin Mendy and Bernardo Silva leave the club, L'Equipe report that the striker has also made a decision to leave Stade Louis II - with Real and Barcelona set to fight to secure his services.

Manchester United will be able to sign Gareth Bale should Real Madrid need to sell the Welshman in order to buy Kylian Mbappe, according to reports.

Mbappe has enjoyed a sensational rise to prominence over the course of last twelve months, playing an instrumental role in AS Monaco's stunning Ligue triumph this past season.

Managers are now pressing ahead with their plans for the summer transfer window so we'll bring you all the latest news and gossip from around the globe.

Madrid have set a price of close to €90.3m (£100m) for the forward, with Jose Mourinho and Chelsea interested in signing the Welsh global, according to Marca.

Set to call it quits at Monaco?

Following the imminent departure of Neymar from Barcelona to PSG, the Catalan club are claimed to have held talks with the youngster, while Real Madrid have reportedly lodged a £160m offer.

But 12 months down the line the Wales worldwide is no longer a guaranteed starter, with Isco replacing him in Zinedine Zidane's starting line-up towards the latter end of last season.

With Frenchman Zidane managing the club and his idol Cristiano Ronaldo at the club, a move to Real Madrid still looks more probable than a move to Barcelona. Zidane has already gone on record to state that Real Madrid are in the market for a striker, meaning a move for Mbappe could be on the cards.

Reports in the Mirror suggest Virgil van Dijk wants an exit from St Mary's, after telling Southampton officials that he will not play for the team.
