Mourinho makes world-record bid for Kylian Mbappe

Mbappe's exploits have led to reported bids well north of €100 million from some of Europe's biggest clubs, making him likely to one day - perhaps soon - be the world's most expensive footballer.

Arsenal are reportedly putting the pieces in place to launch a staggering £122m move for Monaco starlet Kylian Mbappe this summer.

The Arsenal boss said: "Where do you think he [Mbappe] might finish?"

Manchester United and Manchester City have officially joined the race to sign Monaco teenage senasation Kylian Mbappe according to reports in Spain.

"He thinks he needs to play, but I'd say the boy has made enough of an impression to be sure that a club who spends £100m for you gives you the red carpet treatment".




The Guardian's deputy sport news editor Ed Aarons has taken to Twitter to claim that Wenger met with the Nice midfielder's agent to discuss a possible deal for the 25-year-old.

He's scored 26 goals this season and was the driving factor behind the club's run to the Champions League semi-finals.

The Ligue 1 club are desperate to keep hold of Mbappe, who is wanted by a host of European clubs, and also rejected a £105million bid from Real Madrid in May.

Jose Mourinho is in the market for a top class striker after losing Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Mbappe is the latest name to be linked with a move to Old Trafford after they missed out on Antoine Griezmann.

So would the Frenchman only sign for Arsenal if he knew Sanchez was about to leave?
