Manchester City lining up January bid for Kylian Mbappe

Manchester City are reportedly preparing a January move for Kylian Mbappe. They will attempt to beat Real Madrid to the attacker’s signature in 2022. 

Real Madrid tried to sign the France international in the latter stages of the summer transfer window, but could not convince Paris Saint-Germain to sell, despite the fact that Mbappe is into the final year of his contract. 

The Spanish giants are still thought to be the favourites for the 22-year-old. However, according to journalists Ian McGarry and Duncan Castles, speaking on The Transfer Window podcast, Man City owner Sheikh Mansour wants to sign Mbappe ‘at any cost’.

Mbappe would be free to enter into contract discussions with City in January if he does not sign a new deal in Paris.

Mbappe to solve striker problems at Man City?

Many expected Manchester City to sign a high profile striker in the recent summer transfer window following the departure of Sergio Aguero to FC Barcelona upon the expiry of his contract.

Their top target was Tottenham‘s star forward Harry Kane. However, following the failure to sign Kane, Pep Guardiola and his coaching staff have been left without a first-team striker for the season. City’s Brazilian no.9 Gabriel Jesus has seemingly been switched to a wide position.

As such, reports are set to continue circling around the Etihad in the coming months. Moreover, there is bound to be a whole host of names linked with high-profile switches to Man City. 

One such name is Kylian Mbappe, who is out of contract at the end of this season. Consequently, the PSG superstar is attracting significant levels of interest from top clubs across Europe. City will have to battle with favourites Real Madrid for the World Cup winner’s signature.
