Although nothing is final, Kylian Mbappe’s Monaco exit appears inevitable. The French starlet has been linked with a mega-money move away from the Ligue 1 giants since bursting onto the scene last season.
Real Madrid were the favorites, but PSG now lead the race since Los Blancos ended their interest. Rumors claim that an agreement has already been reached with the 18-year-old – all that remains is to struck a deal on a fee with Jardim’s side.
Coughing up the money will be difficult for PSG. Shattering the world-record transfer fee by signing Neymar for £198m, Les Parisiens now need to offload a few players to balance the books.
As a result, the Daily Mail write that Unai Emery’s side are looking into signing Mbappe on loan. This will secure the teenager’s services whilst staying within Financial Fair Play.
If Monaco agree do a loan deal, they will need to adequately replace the man who helped them reach the Champions League semi-final. One name being linked with the French champions is Diego Costa.
After falling out with Chelsea manager Antonio Conte, the Spanish forward has not featured for the Blues. With a Stamford Bridge exit is on the horizon for the former Atletico forward, Monaco has inquired about his availability.
