The 18-year-old has been the talk of the town of late, after some dazzling performances this season in Ligue 1 and the Champions League for Leonardo Jardim's men.

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

France global Mbappe has enjoyed a breakout season, scoring 22 goals - including five in four Champions League knockout games - and has reportedly attracted interest from a number of top sides. He is going strong.

A player who broke Thierry Henry's records as Monaco's youngest ever player when he made his debut in December 2015 and as their youngest ever scorer when he scored his first goal two months later, was still not yet a regular starter for the club at the start of this season.

Le Parisien also reports that the reason why Mbappe still lives in the dorms despite being a bonafide star is because his parents persuaded him to shield him for the dangers of instant fame. "I didn't do Mbappe's contract and I can't tell you the details of the clause, but it's a lot of money".

Asked whether Mbappe has the quality to play for Real, former Villarreal sporting director Cordon said: "Only time will tell". I don't know exactly how much, but it's a lot.

"There are many factors to consider in order for a player to succeed".

Kylian Mbappe is reportedly being monitored by Real Madrid. He is still very young.

The two sides are now locked at the top of the Ligue 1 table with 77 points each, though Monaco have a game in hand.

"It's one to watch and it will be a big talking point over the summer".

"We are already delighted to be in the semi-finals and we give our all to get to the final in Cardiff".
