​Monaco have revealed their huge asking price for prized asset Kylian Mbappe as Real Madrid and other European clubs circle.

Mbappe is undoubtedly the world's hottest young footballer at the present moment, and speculation has followed him about pretty much since the start of the calendar year with regards to a big money move away.

Premier League clubs Arsenal, Manchester City and Liverpool have all held an interest, as have Monaco's domestic rivals Paris Saint-Germain, but La Liga champions Madrid are the favourites to snag the 18-year-old.

Monaco have now said they want no less than a staggering €190m for Mbappe, as reported by Spanish outlet ​Marca.

The Ligue 1 champions recently released a message though their own media expressing their discontent at the behaviour of some unnamed European heavyweights - believed to be City and PSG - with reagrds to their pursuit of Mbappe.

They alleged that illegal approaches have been made and that they have not been contacted about speaking to the player.

That has made Madrid further favourites to sign the superstar, especially given how much money they have raised through the sales of Alvaro Morata and Danilo to put towards a potential bid.
