Kylian Mbappe “understands” that he would not be a regular starter if he left Monaco, according to Monaco royalty.
Mbappe has been linked with a long list of clubs throughout Europe, with Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Arsenal all rumoured to hold an interest.
The striker would surely become the first £100million footballer if he does leave the Principality this summer, but Prince Albert II expects him to stay.
“I don’t think it will happen,” he said when asked if Mbappe will leave.
“There are ongoing discussions, which suggest to me that he will stay at Monaco next season.
“The discussions are regarding increasing his salary, but he and his father understand that it’s not in his interests to go to a big club, where he will not be a certain starter.”
