Ludovic Giuly backs his former club Monaco to reach the Champions League final

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

His exploits have not gone unnoticed, and now the Blues are prepared to battle with Manchester United, Real Madrid and Arsenal for his signature.

The 18-year-old has been the talk of the town of late, after some dazzling performances this season in Ligue 1 and the Champions League for Leonardo Jardim's men.

Silva's stifling of Mbappe may have helped the reigning French champions secure the trophy for the fourth consecutive season, but Monaco are plotting to have the last laugh and relieve PSG of their domestic title this year.

Real already have France striker Karim Benzema leading their line and are unlikely to get rid of their frontman anytime soon, although Mbappe may be one of the few options who could force their hand. "I don't have his contract so I don't know exactly how much, but it's a lot", Cordon confirmed to Cadena Cope.

Sergio Ramos Claps Back After Gerard Pique Flames Real Madrid
Barcelona defender Gerard Pique confessed Juventus "played better over the two legs and can win the Champions League this season". As for Real Madrid, a calf injury could prevent Gareth Bale from playing on Sunday.

Los Merengues have been cited as just one among many teams thought to be seeking Mbappe's signature following his break into the elite ranks of world football this season. "But I hope he stays for the good of Monaco, but we know how the market works and what football is like". Without the team he would not have scored so many goals.

"Have Real bid? The truth is they haven't".

"Only time will tell".

The biggest problem teenage football stars face is that they are exposed to large amounts of money at a very young age, which can lead them to getting too big for their britches.

Giuly says he did not have any preference as to who Monaco faced as all of the teams "have experience in Europe" but said "we will see what happens in 15 days".
