Monaco manager Leonardo Jardim says Kylian Mbappe is'calm despite transfer speculation

According to France Football, the French manager sat down with Monaco starlet Kylian Mbappe and his representatives on 14 June after France's worldwide friendly against England.

Wenger has been a long-term admirer of Mbappe and visited the striker at his home previous year in an attempt to convince him to join Arsenal.

Mbappe has been linked with several clubs, including Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Arsenal, and he did little to quell the speculation surrounding his future.

The Gunners will have to make do without Champions League football next season, however, after they finished fifth in the Premier League table last term.

While any talk from Mbappe's personal camp has remained at a minimum, the forward has recently admitted he does not know if he will still be a Monaco player by the time the transfer window slams shut.

Wenger has already offered Monaco £87 million (R1.4 billion) for the France global, but that bid was rejected a few weeks ago.

Real Madrid are not anxious about Monaco's huge asking price, but have made it clear that they won't match the salary PSG are willing to part with to lure Mbappe to the Parc des Princes.

Very briefly speaking to Spanish news outlet Marca, Mbappe did his best to avoid the topic of where his future lies, before finally admitting: "I do now know if I will stay". So if this is true have PSG just won the race to sign Mbappe instead of Arsenal?
