Reports: Real Madrid Target Had Three-Hour Meeting With Arsene Wenger

By Keegan Kruger - Jul 13, 2017 09:54 AM @KeeganKruger

One of Real Madrid’s transfer targets reportedly had a three-hour meeting with Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.

Ozil Unsure Of Sanchez’s Future, But Hints At His Own Stay

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

The report claims that Wenger used the meeting to try and convince the striker to join him at the north London club this season.

The Ligue 1 champions want around £130 million (R2.2 billion) for their prized asset, a fee which seems a little out of the English side's budget.

The 18-year-old has been linked with a whole host of clubs over the past few weeks, with Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid and Liverpool just being a few.

Wenger has already offered Monaco £87 million (R1.4 billion) for the France international, but that bid was rejected a few weeks ago.  

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.

The young forward made 44 appearances for the Monaco last season and scored 26 goals, while assisting in 14 more in all competitions.

A meeting does not mean mbape will sign for wenger, ther is no way arsenal can compete with real Madrid. Not unless Madrid is nolonger interested in the player.

A free advise to Kylian Mbappe, do not even think of Arsenal go to Madrid or any other team that is hungry for silverware season in season out. Should you consider Arsenal you will become an average player just like Ozil & Sanchez have become, your mandate will be to fight for top 4 finish not to win the EPL and UEFA mandate will be to qualify for knock out stages. It a free advise take or leave it, or if you do have Cesc Fàbregas number call him and hear him out.
