French football sensation Kylian Mbappe is hot property this summer.

The forward has made a name for himself at AS Monaco as one of the most talented goalscorers with his performances last season.

The 18-year old scored 15 goals and provided eight assists in Monaco’s title-winning season. Not just that, many have also drawn comparisons of him with Thierry Henry, another French football great.

Thanks to his abilities, Mbappe has grabbed a lot of interest from many top clubs such as Arsenal, Chelsea, Real Madrid and a few others in the ongoing transfer window.

Joining him as one of the most sought after Monaco players this summer is compatriot Thomas Lemar with Arsenal showing great interest in the Frenchman.

However, the two Monaco stars may just have a massive divorce settlement to thank for their rise to prominence.

The video below from Kick’s official YouTube channel explains how the divorce of the club’s owner Dimitry Rybolovlev forced the Ligue 1 outfit to change their approach and invest in youth.
