French wonder boy, Kylian Mbappe is the hottest property in world football at the moment.
Already a superstar, Mbappe has been courted by every team in Europe over the summer. Arsene Wenger summarized it best when he said that Mbappe could wake up in the morning and decide which club he wishes to go to, and they would pull out the red carpet for him.

After much speculation, it had been reported that Real Madrid had agreed a deal of 160 million euros for Mbappe. Although Monaco later denied any such thing, there is a feeling that it is only a matter of time before the youngster leaves for Real Madrid.
But that might just be about to change.
Mbappe suffered an injury in Monaco’s first game against Toulouse. The forward went off after 75 minutes, after he could no longer continue on the pitch.
If this injury proves to be serious, it could jeopardize his big money move to Real Madrid, which could in turn change things for a lot of other clubs as well.
It is being said that Real would be willing to let Gareth Bale go if they complete the signing of Mbappe. Bale, whose future has been subject to much speculation over the last couple of years, is still a highly valued player who would have a host of clubs after his signature.
Manchester United is extremely interested in Bale, and Mbappe’s move could see United make a sensational move for Gareth Bale.
