Monaco's 18-year-old sensation Kylian Mbappe is a player on everybody's minds, and it seems that his breakthrough season has caught everyone by surprise except his coach Leonardo Jardim.
For some time now, the Portuguese coach has known of his talents, especially after seeing him train since the age of 17.
"Mbappe isn't surprising me one bit," he said. "I went after him when he was 17 and saw him train everyday.
"I knew he had it immediately. This is his second year with us and we know that he has a lot of quality and a spectacular future."
The market may come calling, a possibility that seems inevitable at this point as Europe's top clubs have started to follow Mbappe's every move.
"We are aware of what we have on our hands," Jardim said. "Monaco have a well defined sporting project and we know we'll have to face several exits, but we must continue on with our work."
Real Madrid and Barcelona are amongst the many European clubs after the French forward.
