Prince Albert II has warned Kylian Mbappe he would not be a regular starter if he left Monaco this summer.

The France forward has been linked with the likes of Real Madrid, PSG and Arsenal this summer, who are all seemingly prepared to break the world transfer record to land the teenager.

Mbappe would likely cost in excess of £100million if he left the Principality this summer, but the reigning monarch of Monaco expects him to stay.

“I don’t think it will happen,” Prince Albert II said when asked if Mbappe will leave.

“There are ongoing discussions, which suggest to me that he will stay at Monaco next season.

“The discussions are regarding increasing his salary, but he and his father understand that it’s not in his interests to go to a big club, where he will not be a certain starter.”

Arsene Wenger is among the striker’s biggest admirers and the Arsenal boss was reported to have held a three-hour meeting with the forward recently to outline his Gunners vision to the young forward.
