Monaco will keep 22-goal Kylian Mbappe for another season - Ludovic Giuly

"He really tackled him hard, you could see he went for him and wanted to ruin his confidence."

Mbappe, 18, continued his impressive season with a goal in Monaco's 3-1 home Champions League quarterfinal triumph over Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday - his fifth strike in only four games in the competition.

France global Mbappe has enjoyed a breakout season, scoring 22 goals - including five in four Champions League knockout games - and has reportedly attracted interest from a number of top sides.

In Le Parisien's profile of Kylian Mbappe, "The Other Prince of Monaco", it is revealed that Kylian Mbappe still lives in the AS Monaco academy dorms, and his mom still drives him to training because he still doesnt have his driving license.

Real Madrid have reportedly been strongly linked with a move for Monaco forward Kylian Mbappe this summer, but it appears as though they could miss out. I don't know exactly how much, but it's a lot.

"It's one to watch and it will be a big talking point over the summer".

"There has to be complete calmness with him, he has a lot of talent and we are happy with him".

That's where Mbappe comes in, as AS report that PSG will bid between €80m and €90m to prise him away from Monaco, although it remains to be seen whether an official offer is lodged and in turn whether or not Madrid respond with a big-money bid of their own.

So, to protect him, Mbappe's parents persuaded him to stay in the dorms, despite him being able to afford probably even the most expensive house in Monaco.

"He has no limit at all", Giuly said at Friday's Champions League semifinal draw. In the dressing room, we saw Mbappe was very sad, on the verge of tears.
