Clubs on alert as Mbappe says he's 'not afraid to leave'

Mbappe fuelled speculation he will move to Real Madrid earlier this week after he revealed his admiration for Zinedine Zidane.

He has been strongly linked with a switch to the Spanish capital and Manchester City, with sports daily L'Equipe reporting on Tuesday that both have submitted offers in the region of 120 million euros ($133.5m, £104m) for the player born in the Paris suburbs.

Guardiola is ready to give Mbappe a prominent role in City's side straight away and the club have been in contact with Monaco regarding a fee.

City hope to finalise the signing of goalkeeper Ederson from Benfica on Wednesday and are also hopeful of concluding a deal for Benjamin Mendy, Mbappe's close friend and team-mate at Monaco.

Mbappe has emerged as one of the top talents in Europe following a stellar season which ended with his club winning a first league title in 17 years.

"Why play less?" he said.

"I will have the time to think about all that, but no, I am not afraid of leaving.", he added.

But asked if their examples made him cautious about making a move this summer, Mbappe said he didn't feel he'd play less elsewhere than he already does at Monaco.

"Why play less?" Mbappe said.

"The advice of [Deschamps] counts", Mbappe told reporters ahead of France's friendly with Paraguay on Friday (8pm). That will not guide my choice, but it will count.

Diamondbacks: RHP Zack Godley (1-1, 2.45 ERA) makes his fifth start this season and second of his career against the Brewers . But it was another stellar start from the man who doesn't perhaps look like an ace - he just pitches like one.

"I went to the Masters 1000 event at Monte-Carlo a few weeks ago, but this is my first time at Roland Garros".

The wiry forward addressed his future while on global duty with France, saying, "there's plenty of time to think about all this", via Goal.com. Having consistent playing time is an important factor in remaining in the national team picture.

Chief among those teams is Real Madrid, to whom Mbappe's reported £100 million price tag is hardly of outcome.
