Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea have contacted the entourage of Europe’s hottest young talent, Kylian Mbappé, about their interest in signing the 18-year-old sensation according to RMC Sport.
City’s interest in Mbappé is no secret and they tried to sign him last summer before he truly broke out, but Monaco rejected a £34.5 million bid for a player who at the time was a relative unknown with few senior games under his belt.
His value has skyrocketed since, with Monaco thought to be holding out for a world record fee, but City, along with rivals United and Chelsea, are all keen to snap up one of the most exciting talents to emerge from France in years.
Monaco’s team is loaded with talent and the eyes of the wealthy European elite are on them all, but it is left-back Benjamin Mendy who RMC mention as City’s other target from the principality club.
22-year-old Mendy starred in the Champions League against City and Pep Guardiola is a big fan of the player, which means City could target the French international as looks to upgrade the problematic left-back position in the summer.
City were linked with much of Monaco’s team leading into the Champions League tie and Fabinho, the versatile midfielder/right-back, is another who could be targeted after his father admitted that he and his son have a “soft spot” for Manchester City.
For a limited time, you can get your hands on a Manchester City official shirt from just £30 for adults and £22.50 for children.
