Monaco’s ultras group have sent a message to Kylian Mbappe amid rumours the young forward is seeking an “excessive” increase to his current wage package.
The 18-year-old has been heavily linked with a move away from Stade Louis II this summer, with Arsenal, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain among the clubs linked with the young striker.
The teenage forward hit the headlines last season after breaking into Leandro Jardim’s first-team and making his debut for France’s national side.
And after a summer of growing transfer speculation, he’s reportedly rejected a new contract worth a reported £130,000 a week.
Mbappe has yet to play for the French champions this season.
Furthermore, he was dropped over the weekend for Monaco’s win over Metz after a training ground bust-up with team-mate Andrea Raggi.
The ‘Monaco Ultras 1994’ group have called on the club’s board not to give in to Mbappe’s wage demands or allow him to join their bitter Ligue 1 rivals PSG.
The scary-looking statement, posted on Twitter, read: “It’s now been several weeks since the season restarted, and our club have done so in a fine manner.
“We follow the current situation of AS Monaco closely. Today, we, Ultras Monaco 1994, are standing to react to an affair that concerns one of our players.
“These last few days, we have learned with stupefaction and indignation the numbers spoken about by the media concerning Kylian Mbappe, but also about his salary demands to extend his contract with our club.
“We don’t believe that any player is worth so many million euros.
“We believe in a football as the people’s game, and so values like the love of the shirt and respect for the club that formed you in life.
“We can’t accept that one of our players is permitted to act like this and demand such sums without having proven himself in more than a few dozen matches at the professional level.
“We stand equally to remind Kylian Mbappe and his group that no one is above the institution of AS Monaco.
“So, we hope that our leaders will take the necessary decision to impose themselves in order to close this affair if these excessive salary demands were to be confirmed, taking into account that it is not essential to strengthen the squad to win the title.
“Since their arrival, they have proven their competence and we fully believe in them to fight for a team capable of defending our crown, with or without Mbappe.”
