Monaco hope to ward off suitors for wonderkid Mbappe

It is the eighth time in the club's history that they've won the championship; their last title win came 17 years ago, in the 1999-2000 season.

And Mbappe hinted he could remain at Monaco next season after scoring in their 2-0 win over St Etienne on Wednesday. This is the most handsome season in club history with a Champions League semi-final, a League Cup final and this Ligue 1 title.

Against Lille on Sunday, Mbappe did what he's done to defenders all season: ruin their lives.

Falcao was arguably Monaco's key player this season, certainly for his goals - 21 in just 29 league games - but also by setting an example.

"After the victory in Gambardella [last season], my mother told me: "It's all very well, but it's with the kids".

The Ligue 1 champions are keen to keep the youngster for at least another season with Real the favourites to take the forward to Spain, but the principality club are under no pressure to sell.

With one match left, Monaco has scored 104 league goals - almost as many as the past two seasons combined.

Monaco's remarkable achievement also puts an end to PSG's longstanding dominance of Ligue 1.

On Wednesday, Monaco lacked its usual flair and pace in the rearranged fixture against Saint-Etienne despite an early pressure on Ruffier's goal.

Over the weekend, Ex-Red Vladimir Smicer urged Liverpool to break the bank and sign Monaco star Kylian Mbappe, and it appears that Jurgen Klopp is trying to do exactly that.

To do that on the biggest stage is one thing, but to do it as an 18-year-old has understandably left the footballing world in awe with the player as many have begun touting him for big things in the future.

The second half lacked intensity as Saint-Etienne seemed resigned to its fate, despite a good effort from Veretout that was intercepted by Monaco defender Kamil Glik near the hour mark.
