Kylian Mbappé has decided to stay on for another season with Monaco, according to reports in Le Parisien. The French daily adds that the teenage forward has arranged a meeting with the club's president after his international commitments with France. Together with his parents, Mbappé will tell Monaco officials that his intention is to remain at the club to continue his development in Ligue 1 and build up regular playing time in the top level to boost his chances of selection for next year's World Cup finals.
Madrid, ready to break the bank for sensation, Mbappé
However, that doesn't mean that Mbappé will not end up signing for Real Madrid. Earlier this week, Radio Montecarlo claimed that Madrid are prepared to splash out 135 million euros for the striker, depending on whether Álvaro Morata continues with the club or not in 2017-18, and allow him to remain on loan at Monaco. Monaco have other thoughts and are expected put a lucrative new contract package on the table (Mbappé's current contract expires in 2019) with the promise of sitting down to talk to interested clubs with the idea of releasing him at the end of next season.
