This past week there were reports of Manchester City potentially getting linked with a move for PSG star Kylian Mbappe, who is under contract at the Ligue 1 giants but has always been linked with a move to a bigger club.
However, Pep Guardiola has dismissed those reports linking Manchester City with a move for the World Cup star. Earlier this week, media claimed Guardiola was willing to break the world transfer record to bring Mbappe to Manchester in January, but we can rule that out based on Guardiola’s own words.
“That is not going to happen,” the Spaniard said. “Sometimes I don’t understand where the news comes from. “Manchester City don’t have, and are not going to spend, the money that maybe Mbappe deserves, or PSG deserves.”
“PSG is not going to sell this kind of player to any other club in the world for the next years, I guess. So that is not going to happen. Mbappe is not going to come here and we are not going to swap Raheem [Sterling] or another top player that we have,” answering the reports that indicated a Raheem Sterling sale in order to create funds for the deal.
So no, Mbappe isn’t arriving at Manchester any time soon. At least not for the foreseeable future.
