Liverpool bid €75million for Monaco teenage sensation — In Focus

Kylian Mbappe would prefer to stay another season at Monaco despite interest from a host of Europe's top clubs, according to a Ligue 1 expert.

French champions Monaco are holding out for 100m euros for 18-year-old star Kylian Mbappe and have rejected a bid from Liverpool 75m euros for the French forward. The season before, Monaco netted only 51 and conceded a league low 26. Jardim clearly needed to change things, and he did so radically.

The Monaco winger with his performances this season has impressed many big European clubs and move to one of the big clubs in Europe wouldn't be a surprise at all. However, buried beneath his frustration, he still had an unshakeable inner belief.

To put his impact in context, at the same age, Arsenal great Thierry Henry scored three goals in the French top flight during the 1995-96 season with Monaco. He thrived under the added responsibility of being captain, as someone to look up to for a very young side.

After their run to the Champions League quarter-finals in 2015, Monaco sold Layvin Kurzawa, Aymen Abdennour, Yannick Ferreira Carrasco, Geoffrey Kondogbia and Anthony Martial.

'With all these young players, we know that their value will never go down because they are so talented and ambitious'. "At his age, that's something unique", Trezeguet, who left Monaco for Juventus in 2000 and developed into one of the game's most feared forwards, said.

Valere Germain finished off the triumph with a late insurance strike.

The more trusted source has rejected their claims, which sent Liverpool fans into overdrive, stating that while we're interested in the phenomenal teenager - no offer has been made. It was a sign of faith and sent a symbolic message to the players: All the players are important here.

How they won it Aside from a brief spell at the summit early in the season, Monaco had to wait until matchweek 20 to lead Ligue 1 in earnest, following a 4-1 win in Marseille.

"It's a pleasure to play at Monaco".

"All the players will play", Deschamps said in quotes reported by L'Equipe.

But evidently Liverpool are looking to steal a march as they are seek to develop their squad for Champions League participation next year, should they seal it with victory against Boro on Sunday.
