Kylian Mbappe is not a transfer target for Manchester City and the club has no interest in a mooted swap deal involving Raheem Sterling, says Pep Guardiola.

Reports over the weekend indicated City were interesting in signing Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain, with Sterling potentially included in the transfer.

The England international is yet to sign a new contract with City, with his deal expiring in 2020, leading to speculation the Premier League champions could cash in.

But Guardiola gave a rebuttal to suggestions City and PSG could set up a swap with World Cup winner Mbappe moving to the Etihad Stadium and Sterling heading to Paris.

“Mbappe is not going to happen,” Guardiola said. 

“City aren’t going to spend the money that Mbappe and PSG deserve.

“PSG are not going to sell him, I guess.

“I don’t understand where that news comes from.

“We are not going to swap for Sterling or any other top player we have. 

“People should be more respectful to my players, and to players of other teams.”
