Jose Mourinho is said to be a big admirer of the striker, but Mbappe's Monaco teammate Fabinho believes that Barca or Real are the two teams most likely to prize him away from one of Europe's most exciting young sides.

"We know that sooner or later he'll go to a club like Real Madrid, Barcelona, or another club of that calibre," Fabinho told Chuteira F.C. last week. "But until then we're going to enjoy him at Monaco.

"Mbappe's tremendous. For an 18-year-old, he has such maturity both on and off the pitch. He's playing a decisive role and scoring lots of goals.

"For someone his age playing in the level of competitions that we're playing in, that's not easy. And I haven't even mentioned how quick he is..."

We've watched him play a few times, and we can confirm that, yes, he is pretty quick.
