Monaco vice-president Vadim Vasilyev insists Monaco will do all they can to keep forward Kylian Mbappe at the club.
The Frenchman was a key player in Monaco’s Champions League victory against Manchester City on Wednesday and the 18 year-old’s impressive performances this season has attracted interested from Arsenal and Real Madrid.
However the Monaco VP is determined to hold on to the starlet this summer.
‘Mbappe is a product of our youth academy. He is our DNA. I am very proud.
‘We have a real team. The first half was excellent – the sort of performance that the very top teams make.’
The Frenchman has shone for the Ligue 1 leaders this season. Mbappe boasts 10 goals and seven assists in 21 matches for a Monaco side that has scored 89 times in France’s top division.
Despite having no desire to sell the ace, the French side face a tough task this summer of keeping the striker who has been dubbed ‘the next Thierry Henry’.
