Kylian Mbappe has enjoyed a remarkable season for club and country.

It's been recently reported by French outlet RMC that Real Madrid, the record 12-time European champions, are prepared to make Mbappe the world's most expensive football surpassing the £89m Manchester United - who are also keeping tabs on the striker - paid for compatriot Paul Pogba.

Another possible boost came the way of Arsenal last night as well, with the France national manager Didier Deschamps electing to pair Mbappe up front with the current Arsenal centre forward Olivier Giroud and it worked a treat.

Jose Mourinho has the striker on a list of targets that includes Real Madrid's Alvaro Morata, Andrea Belotti of Torino and Everton talisman Romelu Lukaku.

The lead plaintiff, Majid Karami Kamasaee, was detained on Manus Island for 11 months from September 2013. All migrants arriving to Australia without a visa are subject to mandatory detention.

Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante says that France teammate Kylian Mbappe "is going to have a good future" in the game.

But when pressed if he had seen Tuesday's reports which suggested he has agreed to join Real before spending next season back on loan at Monaco, Mbappe replied: "I don't read stuff anymore".

The France global had a fine season for Monaco this campaign, guiding them to the Ligue 1 title ahead of Paris St-Germain. "I'm under contract, I'm not free".

A source told ESPN FC last week that two clubs had made bids of more than €100 million for the 18-year-old, whose stunning displays in Monaco's Ligue 1 title win and run to the semifinals of the Champions League have sparked strong interest from Europe's biggest clubs.
