Monaco Vice-President Vadim Vasilyev has issued a warning on a potential transfer for Kylian Mbappe, claiming the club would be ready to refuse an offer of €100m.

He’s scored goals and 14 assists and has played a solid role in helping Monaco to their first Ligue 1 title in 17 years and into the Champions League semi-finals.

However, Vasilyev insists the club will not be forced into selling their star asset following his incredible form at Old Trafford this season.

Speaking about a potential move, Vasilyev believes there is no deal which will convince them to sell Mbappe.

“Kylian Mbappe has no price. If he wants to leave then we’ll discuss it,” he said.

“Are we ready to refuse an offer of €100m? Of course, no doubt!

“We want to keep him for at least one more season so he can continue his formidable progression and help us dream bigger.

“Our wish is to extend Mbappe’s contract, that’s a certainty.

“We’ve said to all the players that we won’t talk about the future before the end of the season.

“I insist no player has talked about his future, not one. We’ve all been focused, otherwise, we wouldn’t have won this title.”

He’s enjoyed an incredible breakthrough at Monaco and unless a club plays an enormous fee for his signature, there’s a slim chance we’ll see him leaving Monaco this summer as he continues his development as a player.
