Classy Mbappe secures league for Monaco

Mbappe, 18, made his first two worldwide appearances during the March fixtures against Luxembourg and Spain and retains his place in Didier Deschamps' 26-man squad after helping Monaco to their first Ligue 1 title in 17 years.

Last season, Liverpool reportedly sent scouts to watch Mbappe, and in March, the Daily Mail claimed that the 18-year old "turned down" a move to Liverpool.

Having made the capital its home for four seasons, the trophy goes to the Mediterranean principality for the eighth time, the first since 2000 and the days of David Trezeguet.

Middlesbrough visits Liverpool at Anfield on Sunday with the Reds hopeful of securing a win and securing a place in the top four.

Monaco may have been knocked out of Champions League at the hands of Juventus, but they're still top of Ligue 1 and battling to hold off PSG and finish the season as champs for the first time in 17 years.

How they won it Aside from a brief spell at the summit early in the season, Monaco had to wait until matchweek 20 to lead Ligue 1 in earnest, following a 4-1 win in Marseille.

Manchester United are now 7/1 favourites to sign Mbappe from Monaco according to Sky. The 18-year-old Mbappe's ascension was nothing short of meteoric, and Monaco will do very well to keep him this summer, when some huge offers are expected.

The Monaco winger with his performances this season has impressed many big European clubs and move to one of the big clubs in Europe wouldn't be a surprise at all.

Real Madrid and Liverpool are amongst the clubs that have been linked with Mbappe, with the 18-year-old facing a hard decision regarding whether to stay at Monaco, where he is guaranteed regular playing time, or move elsewhere and run the risk of being mainly used as a substitute.

"But of course, every player dreams of playing for the best teams and in the best divisions one day". And most of the United's signings are dependent on whether they have the Champions League football next year or not.
