Manchester City set sights on Mbappe

Kylian Mbappe is currently on loan from Monaco to Paris Saint-Germain, but the deal is set to become permanent this summer for the vast sum of €180 million. This would see the teenager become the world’s second most-expensive player ever.

But according to the Mirror, the Parisians are at the moment being investigated by UEFA for a possible breach of Financial Fair Play rules, having already signed Neymar from Barcelona for a world-record fee of €222 million. Should they be found guilty, PSG would face not only huge fines, but possible expulsion from the Champions League as well.

This could see their deal for Mbappe fall through, and Manchester City, whose manager has already shown interest in the youngster, are monitoring the situation closely, ready to pounce should such an opportunity present itself. Pep Guardiola was keen on signing Mbappe last summer only to be thwarted by the PSG swoop.

Now he and his club are ready to capitalize on the French club’s potential problems and make Mbappe a part of their already impressive squad, as they prepare to assault the Champions League next season.
