Man Utd Star Paul Pogba Admits He Is 'Impressed' by Monaco Teenager Kylian Mbappe

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has said that he’s been ‘impressed’ with 18-year-old Monaco forward Kylian Mbappe this season.

The teenager scored a superb goal in the 5-3 defeat at Manchester City on Tuesday, earning comparisons to Thierry Henry for his high level of performance.

A number of top European clubs are reportedly interested in Mbappe, one of those being Manchester United, whose record-signing Paul Pogba has spoken out about the starlet’s ability.

?”I don’t like to talk about other teams, I’m no expert, but he has impressed me,” said Pogba, as quoted in the ?Metro.

Monaco have a history of selling top players over the past decade, cashing in on the likes of James Rodriguez and Anthony Martial, but now that Monaco are challenging for the Ligue 1 title, their transfer strategy may have changed.

If the 18-year-old does in fact leave Monaco in the summer, he will command a much higher fee than Anthony Martial was sold for.

Martial joined United in 2015 in a deal that totalled £58m, with £36m being paid up-front and the remaining £22m paid in add-ons.
