PSG and Manchester City are also mentioned although Pierre Mbappe is adamant that his nephew is happy at Monaco for the time being

Kylian Mbappe's uncle has put Europe's top clubs on red alert after mentioning the likes of Juventus, Real Madrid, Manchester United and Barcelona as possible transfer destinations for his nephew.

PSG and Manchester City are also noted as potential options for Mbappe, although Goal understands Pep Guardiola's side are put off by his astronomical £110 million asking price.

The latest transfer rumours

The teenage France international has scored 14 league goals this season and is reportedly the name at the top of many transfer wishlists in the summer window.

And although Pierre Mbappe insists the player is happy to remain with Champions League semi-finalists Monaco, he concedes that as many as six clubs could all be in for the 18-year-old.

He said, as quoted by Tuttosport: "Are Juventus an option for the future? Yes, Juve are, as well as the two teams in Manchester, PSG, Real Madrid, Barcelona... in the future, they could all be options. You never know, but my nephew is already at a great team and he's very happy at Monaco.

"When the time comes [to discuss a possible move away], we will talk with our family. We are football people, I do not think Kylian will need an agent for discussions over his future."

Could Madrid really sign Griezmann?

When asked about Juve specifically, who Monaco face in Wednesday's Champions League semi-final, and whether Mbappe knows enough about the club, his uncle added: "He's been following Juventus for a long time now, well before the draw came in. He always watches Juventus, Barcelona, Real Madrid...

"What does he like about Juve? The history, their record, their mentality, their capacity to defend as a team and their ability to continue to win over the years while relying on young talents like Pogba, Morata or Dybala. And he likes Buffon. I wouldn't be surprised if he asked him for his shirt after the game."
