Arsene Wenger has indirectly stated his plans for Kylian Mbappe if the youngster does agree to join the Gunners this summer.
Mbappe has attracted the attention of several big clubs around Europe following a breakthrough season for AS Monaco.
And as the likes of Chelsea and Real Madrid approach the 18-year-old with offers of a possible transfer switch, France national team boss Didier Deschamps has called for Mbappe to join a club which will guarantee regular playing time.
And in an interview with beIN sports, Wenger has made it clear he is also in support of ensuring the striker does not warm the bench for his next club.
“Where do you think he might finish? Somewhere where he has a good chance to play and is sure to play. That is why I think Deschamps made that statement.” the Gunners boss said
“He thinks that he needs to play but I would say as well on the other hand that the boy has made enough impression to be basically sure a club who spends a 100 million for you is basically to make at the start at least the red carpet.
“Nobody will buy a player for a 100 million and say, “Come on, sit in the stands.”
