Kylian Mbappe is one of the most sought after players in the world at the moment and Real Madrid remain the side most linked to securing his signature.

The 18-year-old burst onto the scene last season and is already being touted as a future Ballon d’Or winner.

While Zinedine Zidane is known to be an admirer of his young compatriot, he tip-toed around the topic when it came up at his press conference on Saturday night.

Given the fact that AS Monaco threatened to issue a complaint to FIFA over clubs ‘tapping up’ their prized asset, Zidane’s subtlety was well advised.

“You know Mbappe is a good player and I already know too,” he said.

“Many clubs are interested in him but I can just think about tomorrow’s match and my players.”
