Few could begrudge Kylian Mbappe a summer break after playing his way into the £100 million bracket thanks to a prodigious, title-winning breakthrough season with Monaco.
Indeed, the 18-year-old striker has decided to adopt a brave new look for his holidays with both he and his adopted older brother — former Rennes striker Jires Kembo Ekoko — going peroxide blonde.

Faced with the prospect of months of relentless transfer speculation, Mbappe recently revealed that he plans on taking some time to recuperate before facing the chasing pack head on.
“I’m going to go away with my family and we’ll think about what’s going to happen,” Mbappe told reporters in the aftermath of France’s 3-2 friendly victory over England.
“We have to sort it out, see what happens with [Monaco] too, because I’m under contract with the club. I’m not free. But we will see what happens.”
