AS Monaco striker Kylian Mbappe is the new sensation in European football. He is 18 years old and completed a brilliant performance on the return leg of the Champions League Round of 16 against Manchester City. La Sexta reporter Jose Luis Sanchez said after that game that Mbappe is now one of Madrid's main priorities for the upcoming transfer window, but the player himself will not pay attention to those rumors.

"I don't even read what the press says, I'm calm where I'm at. I wake up every morning and go training just like everyone else, I try to improve and do what I do, nothing more. I'm not thinking about any other thing," said Mbappe.

It's almost clear that the French attacker will be leaving Monaco this summer as the French club will surely try to take advantage of his potential. The first reports indicate that he could be available for €70 million.
