Mbappe: Luis Enrique refused to accept that they should put in a less dominant performance

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has hinted at a sensational move for Kylian Mbappe this summer.

The Paris Saint-Germain star has notified the French club that he will leave as a free agent this summer.

Real Madrid leads the fight for his signature, but Arsenal has been mentioned as a serious suitor, and Arteta believes the Gunners should always be in the running for players of Mbappe’s calibre.

“When there is a player of that calibre, we always have to be in that conversation,” Arteta told his pre-match press conference on Friday.

“But it looks in a different way; that’s what I would say.”

Mbappe appears to be heading to Real Madrid following an eight-year saga.

The Frenchman began talks with the La Liga club immediately after making his Monaco debut in the 2015/16 season.

Mbappe’s transfer to the Bernabeu fell through, and he instead signed for hometown club Paris Saint-Germain for £153 million.

Despite having spent his whole career in Ligue 1, the forward has emerged as one of the world’s most prominent players.
