Not even the most stupendous bid would force Monaco to sell Kylian Mbappe this summer.

That’s the message from the club’s vice-president and CEO Vadim Vasilyev who is determined to keep the ace striker.

The teenager has emerged as one of the leading strikers in Europe after scoring a sensational 26 goals this season.

Mbappe, who has also provided 14 assists for his teammates has attracted the attention of Real Madrid, Manchester United, Liverpool and of course, Arsenal.

Though Vasilyev says there is no intention to allow the 18 year-old to leave.

‘It is part of our model that some players leave but now we are financially much stronger than two years ago,’ he told CNN via Metro.

‘With all these young players, we know that their value will never go down because they are so talented and ambitious.

‘To keep Mbappe? It is our priority.’

When asked if a bid of £100million would tempt change their minds Vasiley responded with an emphatic “No.”

Earlier this month Arsene Wenger revealed he had visited the striker’s house last summer in an attempt to recruit him to The Emirates.

The fee for the forward would have been considerably less, but it now seems the Gunners have been priced out of a possible deal.
