Despite being highly rated, the versatile youngster has understandable had problems getting into the Los Blancos starting line-up. Last season he did make his mark in the Spanish capital and scored in Real’s 4-1 win over Juventus in the Champions League.

The Daily Mirror are reporting that Arsenal are set to launch a world-record £125million bid for Monaco striker Kylian Mbappe this summer.

The story seems like a fairytale from a journalist with too much time on his hands or after a few too many drinks. Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger hates to part with money, so for the French boss to part with that sort of money for one player, albeit a highly rated player seems ridiculous.
