Kylian Mbappe

Chelsea have entered the race to sign AS Monaco striker Kylian Mbappe, report The Sun.

Mbappe needs absolutely no introduction, he is now widely considered the most exciting youngster in football. Though he is just 18-years-old, he found the back of the net 26 times in all competitions last campaign, with six of those coming in the Champions League.

According to Squawka, Mbappe was on the field for 1519 minutes in Ligue 1 last season. During that time, he bagged 15 goals and provided eight assists – that’s a direct goal contribution every 60 minutes in one of Europe’s top five leagues.

It comes as no surprise that The Sun report that Manchester United, Arsenal and Real Madrid are all interested in signing Mbappe – and it appears as though Chelsea will provide the trio with stern competition.

The Sun report that Conte will meet Mbappe in London after France’s friendly against England on June 13th, with a view to convincing him to make a move to Stamford Bridge. What a signing he would be.

  1. Kylian Mbappe Lottin has had an outrageous breakout season. Twenty Three goal contributions in the league in just 1519 minutes which means that he participated in a goal every 66.0434783 minutes. That is just ridiculous, he scored Twenty Six goals in all competitions. These are world class figures and thinking about how young he is. Mbappe is just eighteen which means that he has at least 14 years of top flight football ahead of him. He literally is the new Thierry Henry and he will be breaking record after record as he grows up. In my opinion he fits Chelsea’s play style perfectly. He is fast and direct, very versatile, and can linkup play very well and so he would work well with Eden Hazard and Cesc Fabregas. I don’t think the transfer will happen though because he has to be smarter than that and stay for one more season at AS Monaco and then maybe join Real Madrid for a world record fee and he will become a star for the Merengues and become the new Galactico signing that we expect of Florentino Perez.
