Monaco have confirmed that young superstar Kylian Mbappe DOES have a release clause in his contract.
However, the situation is a strange one, as Monaco sporting director Antonio Cordon is, rather surprisingly, unaware of what the release clause is exactly.
The forward has bundles of talent and has showcased that on the European stage this season, scoring 5 goals in the competition this season.
Top clubs from all over Europe are chasing the teenage sensation’s signature and Real Madrid are reportedly at the front of the line for his services.
But Cordon admitted the La Liga giants are yet to get in touch over a potential move in the summer.
“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.”
