How Chelsea missed the chance to sign £100m-rated Man United and Arsenal target
Currently the most sought after starlet in European football, Kylian Mbappe would have been a Chelsea player since he was 14-years but for the presence of Chelsea’s impressive academy players like Dominic Solanke and Tammy Abraham, reports Daily Mirror.
Mbappe, 18, has taken Ligue One by storm following his consistent and impressive performances for the Stade Louis II outfit. Thus far this season, he has netted 24 goals and provided five assists in all competitions for Moncao.
He started his career under the tutelage of his father for his native club Bondy but was offered to Chelsea for £17,000. The Blues turned town the opportunity to sign him before the attacker went on to join famed Clairefontaine academy, that has turned out many stars of football.
Mbappe is now wanted by a host of Premier League clubs not restricting interest from Real Madrid. The youngster has a price tag of £100m, but it take madness for any club to pay such colossal sum for a youngster that has not fully proved himself.
Monaco are enjoying an unbelievable season – they play Juventus in the semi-final of the Champions League tomorrow while they are comfortably seated atop of the Ligue One table with one more game at hand and three more points than title rivals PSG. Mbappe has played a huge part in their season.
