Monaco strike sensation Kylian Mbappe has revealed that he has no intention of rushing to take advantage of interest from Europe's top clubs.
The 18-year old, whose 15 league goals helped his club to a surprise Ligue 1 victory, is reportedly a transfer target for a number of elite clubs.
The French champions had already turned down a reported £103m offer from Real Madrid for the immensely talented young forward, and in an interview with beIN Sports, Mbappe insisted that he will not make a move that will compromise his growth as a player
"I will make a choice based on my sporting career, and my career is first and foremost, and I am at an age where I need to play, and that will be paramount," he said.
"I'm not 35 or 36, an age where I have to manage [my body], I still have everything to learn, this year was discovery, and now comes the most important step: Confirmation.

"And I will be the sole decision-maker, and I will not go anywhere where I will be forced to go," he added.
He continued to explain the reasons for his phenomenally successful season, claiming that confidence was key to his performances.
"In football, everything is possible, from the moment you work and you believe in your qualities.
"I always believed in myself, it wasn't enough to want to, you have to give yourself the means [to succeed]. I didn't know it was going to happen so fast, but I knew I wanted to do it," he added.
