Arsene Wenger believes that Monaco’s teenage sensation, Kylian Mbappe will stay at the club for one more season.
Mbappe became highly sought after following a tremendous season with Monaco, scoring 15 goals as they won the Ligue 1.
However, Wenger has denied making any bid for the 18-year-old, though he maintains he is interested in him.
“It looks like that,” Wenger told reporters when asked if Mbappe would stay at Monaco. “Maybe he had too much choice, so in the end people don’t move.”
Reports in Spain claimed Arsenal had made a world-record bid of £123 million for Mbappe, but Wenger denied that was the case.
“That’s not true,” Wenger said. “People have big imaginations. What we know now with Mbappe is it’s over £100m, after that it’s free for everyone to imagine.
“But we have not made any offer. I think he will stay, it looks like that, for one more season.”
