Bernardo Silva believes even Kylian Mbappe doesn't if he will leave Monaco logo 31-05-2017

Bernardo Silva believes former team-mate Kylian Mbappe is undecided over his Monaco future.

Silva left the Ligue 1 champions for Manchester City in a deal reported to be worth an initial £43 million last week.

It could prove to be a busy close season for Monaco as they aim to ward off potential suitors for other members of Leonardo Jardim's squad, where teenage sensation Mbappe is the star attraction.

The 18-year-old enjoyed a stunning breakthrough season, earning his maiden caps for France and scoring 26 goals in all competitions as Monaco also reached the semi-finals of the Champions League.

Silva was often the man providing the ammunition for his livewire team-mate and told RMC Sport Mbappe has enviable options, amid speculation Real Madrid will launch a world-record bid.

"Honestly, I think even he does not know if he's going to stay or go," Silva said.

"He's a fantastic player who had an incredible second half of the season. I think he is [happy] in Monaco, but if he goes to a big club to play, it's also very good for him.

"He's very young, and it would be nice to stay a year longer, but his age is incredible, so you never know."

City have been linked to another raid on Monaco for left-back Benjamin Mendy – a move Silva would welcome.

"Benjamin Mendy is a friend and if he can play with me it's better than against me," he said.

"Especially as a left defender and me on the right or in the middle."
