Kylian Mbappe responds to Man Utd, Arsenal link

Mbappe focused on Monaco job

Teenage sensation Kylian Mbappe insists that he is fully focused on his job at AS Monaco amid the interest from both Arsenal and Manchester United.

The 18-year-old has been in exceptional form since February having netted 12 goals across all competitions for the Principality outfit.

Both the Gunners and United have kept tabs on the youngster over the past couple of months, but Mbappe admits that he is unperturbed by the ongoing speculation in the English press.

"I do not look at what the English press say. I remain very calm around this attention I get," Mbappe was quoted as saying on Metro.

Mbappe has netted 17 goals in just 29 outings for Monaco this campaign, and he feels that his current showing is nothing near exceptional unless a player goes through a 60-goal season.

The youngster, who is being dubbed as the new Thierry Henry, notched a brace in the 3-0 victory over Caen on Sunday as Monaco maintained their three-point lead at the top of Ligue 1.
