Kylian Mbappe has played 58 games for Monaco’s first-team.

That’s the latest bid both clubs have submitted in an attempt to secure football’s brightest young talents, according to Telefoot.

How does that work out?

At a cool €2.2mil-per-game, not including the two caps he’s picked up for the French national team.

Worth the price tag?

City reportedly upped the €120m transfer fee Madrid had already seen rejected, forcing Zinedine Zidane’s side to match the bid.

Pep Guardiola has already completed the signing of former Monaco midfielder Bernardo Silva in a £43m deal.

Citeh also want to sign Mbappe’s team-mate Benjamin Mendy to replace the left-back slot vacated by Gael Clichy’s exit.

But back to the main man.

Mbappe scored 26 goals in all competitions for title winners Monaco, scooping the Ligue 1 Young Player of the Year award.

Ousmane Dembele was the previous winner of award, leaving Rennes for Borussia Dortmund the same summer.

The best Dembele?

Any move Mbappe makes this summer is likely to see him become the most expensive player on the planet, succeeding fellow Frenchman Paul Pogba.

Can he handle the pressure?

At the rate City are currently signing Monaco players, it will probably feel like he’s not moved anywhere, aside from the weather.
