No RM Mbappe contact, say Monaco

Monaco sporting director Antonio Cordon confirmed Real Madrid have not been in contact over a transfer for striker Kylian Mbappe.

The comments came after the 18-year-old striking sensation netted in Wednesday’s 3-1 victory over Borussia Dortmund – his fifth goal in only four Champions League matches, which helped see the Ligue 1 club join Madrid in the last four.

"Have Real Madrid contacted us for Mbappe? The truth is they haven't,” Cordon told Cadena Ser.

"I hope that Mbappe continues with us for a long time and gives us many great nights of football.

"He is a player that has had an important progression and has deserved it. He is going strong

"There are many factors to consider in order for a player to succeed. He is still very young. We will see what happens this summer - we expect it to be a long one."

"I hope he stays for the good of Monaco, but we know how the market works and what football is like.

"He has a clause and it's quite a lot of money. I don't know exactly how much, but it's a lot."
