"I hope that Mbappe continues with us for a long time and gives us many great nights of football".
Real Madrid have reportedly been strongly linked with a move for Monaco forward Kylian Mbappe this summer, but it appears as though they could miss out.
The Ligue 1 side were drawn against the Italian champions in this morning's semi-final draw, with the first leg to be played in the principality on May 3.
The French wonderkid has been dubbed "the new Thierry Henry" thanks to his fine form for the Ligue 1 leaders this season.
"He is a player that has had an important progression and has deserved it".
CHELSEA have joined the race for Kylian Mbappe after sending scouts to watch the hotshot on Wednesday.
Le Parisien also reports that the reason why Mbappe still lives in the dorms despite being a bonafide star is because his parents persuaded him to shield him for the dangers of instant fame.
Meanwhile, in another interview with Cadena Ser, the former Villarreal sporting director also added that the club are yet to receive any approach from Real Madrid.
"He has a clause and it's quite a lot of money". He is still very young. "I don't know how many offers there are for him".
The two sides are now locked at the top of the Ligue 1 table with 77 points each, though Monaco have a game in hand.
Giuly says he did not have any preference as to who Monaco faced as all of the teams "have experience in Europe" but said "we will see what happens in 15 days".
Mbappe's teammate Radamel Falcao hailed him as "a very intelligent player" and said: "Besides his youth, he has a lot of class and has managed to learn to read the games very quickly at this level".
