The France worldwide has been in stunning form for the Ligue 1 side throughout the 2016-17 season to alert Europe's top clubs to the teenager's talent.

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.

Kylian Mbappe is on the radar of Europe's biggest clubs following his sensational breakout season at Monaco. "I don't know how many offers there are for him".

Los Merengues have been cited as just one among many teams thought to be seeking Mbappe's signature following his break into the elite ranks of world football this season.

That being said, Rodriguez may be willing to accept a minor cut in order to bring an end to his Real Madrid tenure, which has seen the Colombia global score 31 goals in 105 appearances, per Transfermarkt. He is a young lad and the young players are the ones that all the teams look at and want.

Asked whether Champions League holders Real, who are also in the last four, had contacted him about Mbappe, Cordon said: "The truth is they haven't".

Real Madrid have been linked with the teenager but the Spanish giants are yet to make an approach, according to Monaco's sporting director Antonio Cordon.

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

"Only time will tell [if he has what it takes to succeed at a club like Real Madrid]".

The biggest problem teenage football stars face is that they are exposed to large amounts of money at a very young age, which can lead them to getting too big for their britches.

"I hope he'll stay because we have to keep our best players, but we all know the market and how things happen".
