Deschamps said: “From my experience, I’d say he should stay at Monaco for further development.”

The French manager, despite wanting Mbappe to take things slow, gave the youngster his first international caps in March of this year against Luxembourg and Spain, making him the second youngest player ever to appear for the France team.

Mbappe has scored 24 goals in 40 appearances this season in all competitions and has had some highly impressive performances in Ligue 1, thus attracting the attention of several club's around Europe, the strongest linked team being Jose Mourinho's Manchester United.


Manchester United, despite already possessing some young talent, could be looking to strengthen their forward line for next season, adding to the likes of Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford. 

United have struggled with consistency this season, despite a lengthy time unbeaten in the league, United drew more games than they won and currently find themselves struggling to reach the top four and Champions League qualification. 

However, Mourinho will be looking to win the Europa League in order to guarantee a place in the world's most prestigious club tournament next season.
