"Secret meeting held" - Manager and Arsenal target have met to discuss the player's future


Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has made personal contact with Kylian Mbappe to convince him to make a move to the Santiago Bernabeu.

The Monaco striker is a confirm target for the Spanish giants as well as Arsenal.

Earlier this month, the youngster has revealed that the Liga champions made initial contact when he was just 14 years old as he confirmed that they are interested in securing his services this summer.

"Real Madrid have been trying to recruit me since I was 14," he revealed.

"We're going to go away with the family and we'll think about what's going to happen.

"We have to sort it out, see what happens with the club too, because I'm under contract with a club, I'm not free. We'll see what's happening."

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger wants the club to make a world record bid to secure the services of the youngster.

But Real Madrid are not ready to give up the fight and are expected to make a very important offer of their own.
