French Sensation opens up on Manchester United, Arsenal and Real Madrid interest


Monaco sensation Kylian Mbappe has insisted he is concentrating on his games for Monaco in the midst of reported interest from top clubs like Manchester United, Arsenal and Real Madrid.

The 18-year-old forward delivered another man-of-the-match show in Sunday’s 3-0 triumph over Caen and finished the game with two goals on his name, taking his season count to 19 over all rivalries.

The youngster also scored in both ties against Manchester City in Champions League to thump the English mammoths out of the competition.

And now taking after his ascent to acclaim in France the gifted striker has turned into the subject of interest from a few clubs including top clubs like Arsenal, Manchester United and Real Madrid.

However while talking about the situation the attacker seemed to be remained very calm and suggested he is not an ‘extraordinary’ player and  is doing what he can do best.

‘I would not say that what I do is extraordinary,’ Mbappe said. ‘I would just say that I am able to do what I know best. I would not say it’s extraordinary.

‘Extraordinary is a player who can score 60 goals. There are not a lot. Otherwise I think we would overuse the term. I would not say it’s amazing but I’m on a good run.’

Mbappe also insisted he does not heed to any English media linking him to top clubs and is cool about all the attention he is getting.

“Sorry, but I do not look at what the English press say. I remain very calm around this attention I get.

“I get up in the morning and I go to practice like everyone else. I try to work to improve myself every day and I try to do on the pitch what I do during the training sessions.

“For now, it works well,” Mbappe told.

The youngster’s brilliant form has been one of the key elements of Monaco’s contention in all four competitions as of now as they sit at the top of Ligue 1, three points ahead of the current league holders Paris Saint-Germain. Mbappe also got his first senior international call-up last week after he was picked up by Deschamps to play against Luxembourg and Spain.
