Monaco vice-president Vadim Vasilyev has insisted that the club have no intention of selling talented starlet Kylian Mbappe this summer, despite interest from the likes of Barcelona, Arsenal, Real Madrid and Manchester United.

The 18-year-old was ​linked with a move to Catalan giants Barcelona earlier this week after a stunning display against Manchester City in the Champions League, a match that was also attended by ​Arsenal head scout Gilles Grimandi.


Monaco were forced into the sale of star asset Anthony Martial to Manchester United in 2015, but Vasilyev is confident that history won't repeat itself with Mbappe.

The vice-president went on to say that he sees no reason why Mbappe would leave the club at such a young age, claiming that he 'will do everything' in his power to keep the teenager at the club beyond this summer.

"Kylian is a child of the club and embodies the quality of our training," he told L'Equipe, via talkSPORT.

"He has very smart parents and they know very well about a career of a footballer. We will do everything to keep him and it is very much possible that he will be here next season.

"I don't see why he would want to leave."
