Managers are now pressing ahead with their plans for the summer transfer window so we'll bring you all the latest news and gossip from around the globe.

And now, after months of speculation surrounding what would be a world record fee for his transfer, Mbappe has finally gone on record about what he will do with his future.

The 18-year-old has attracted interest from a whole host of top clubs including the likes of Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain but it appears Arsene Wenger is also doing all he can to lure the striker to England.

Mbappe soared to stardom in his breakthrough season in Ligue 1 - scoring 15 goals and registering eight assists despite only 17 starts (12 appearances from the bench).

It is said that Mbappe would prefer a move to Real Madrid in the coming future, but for now, he is happy to stay at in France where he is guaranteed to get regular game time. Marca say a bid of "more than 140 million euros" was lodged, which equates to £123.3m.

The player has previously admitted it's his dream to play at the Bernabeu and that cause could be helped by Monaco president Vadim Vasilyev.

According to France Football, the French manager sat down with Monaco starlet Kylian Mbappe and his representatives on 14 June after France's global friendly against England.

Real Madrid are not anxious about Monaco's huge asking price, but have made it clear that they won't match the salary PSG are willing to part with to lure Mbappe to the Parc des Princes.
