French Ligue 1 champions Monaco have confirmed they will no longer sell any of their players as speculation surrounds striker Kylian Mbappe.
Monaco, who reached last season's Champions League semi-finals, have already sold Tiemoue Bakayoko (Chelsea), Benjamin Mendy and Bernardo Silva (Manchester City) but vice-president Vadim Vasilyev on Wednesday stated unequivocally that the sales are over and that the players will stay.
"There is no agreement with a club," Vasilyev told the media.
"This [Mbappe] is the biggest hope of European football, all the big clubs want him.
"We are discussing an extension with Kylian. I hope we will get there. This is a very important decision, especially for Kylian. We must give him time and not rush things too fast.
"Today there is no agreement. Monaco's wish is to extend it."
"I have also seen speculation about the case of (Thomas) Lemar," Vasilyev added.
"But he stays with us, we talked together, he has a tremendous talent, he is also a must for our team.
"We have kept all of the key players that we intended to keep. Fabinho stays, he is an essential player in the midfield."
Lemar has been linked with Arsenal, while Fabinho has been rumoured to be on his way to Manchester United.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
