Liverpool and Real Madrid are hoping to capitalise on the uncertainty surrounding Kylian Mbappe’s future and sign him in January, L’Equipe reports.
The 17-year-old attacker, born in France, is out-of-contract at the end of this season and has yet to agree a new deal with Monaco.
ASM’s vice president Vadim Vasilyev will sit down with Mbappe’s entourage this week hoping to reach terms on a new deal, knowing that both Liverpool and Real Madrid are circling the young prospect with the hope of stealing him away from the principality on a a cut price deal this month.
The report claims that Mbappe is questioning his playing chances at Monaco considering they have recruited a number of attacking players in recent months, and he could be convinced to sign with the Reds or Madrid if a route to the first-team is evident.
Still just 17, Mbappe has played four times for Monaco’s first-team. He made his debut in December 2015, playing two minutes of a 1-1 draw with Caen in Ligue 1, before going on to play against Spurs in the Europa League, Saint-Etienne in the league, and playing the entire 90 minutes against Bordeaux in a defeat in the Coupe de la Ligue.
