Bernardo Silva has revealed that his former Monaco team-mate Kylian Mbappe is still unsure about his summer plans.

The France international has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League this summer after impressing in Ligue 1 over the past 12 months.

Silva completed a switch to the Premier League earlier this week after the attacking midfielder completed a big-money move to the Etihad Stadium.

Mbappe was linked with a move to Manchester United earlier in 2016 when the teenager was scoring goals for fun in the Champions League.

L’Equipe reported on Thursday that Arsenal had made a club-record £87m offer for the France international as Arsene Wenger looked to bolster his attacking options.

The Telegraph confirmed that this bid had been rejected by the Ligue 1 champions as Real Madrid look to secure the teenager’s signature.

Now, Mbappe’s former Monaco team-mate Silva, who is the biggest signing in the Premier League so far this summer, lifted the lid on Mbappe’s current dilemma.

“”I think even he does not know if he’s going to stay or go,” Silva is quoted as saying by Metro.

“I think he is happy in Monaco, but if he goes to a big club to play it’s also very good for him.

“He’s very young and it would be nice to stay a year longer, but his age is incredible, so you never know.”
