After winning Ligue 1 and taking the title from the French capital for the first time in four seasons, AS Monaco have a fight ahead of them this summer to keep hold of their stars who helped them to the club’s first league title since 99/00.
Kylian Mbappe has been their poster boy sseason. The teenager showed the world just how good he is with his impressive displays in Ligue 1 and of course the Champions League as he became the youngest ever player to score in the knock-out stages.
Tiemoue Bakayoko, on the other hand, has been the ‘Paul Scholes’ of the operation because he has gone about his business quietly but effectively, proving himself to be one of Monaco’s key players.

Almost certainly destined for the exit door after Christmas, Matic has since shown the form he produced during the first season of his second spell at Stamford Bridge.
The Serbian has put in some dominate displays in the middle of the park, and has even added a goal threat to his game, scoring against both Tottenham and Middlesbrough in recent weeks.
