English press reports have circulated that Manchester City will enter the race to sign Kylian Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain next summer, based on clear instructions from the club’s owner, Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
Mbappe’s contract with Paris Saint-Germain expires at the end of this season, and he has the right to negotiate and sign for any club starting next January, and the name of Real Madrid always stands out as the closest destination to the French international.
But what journalist Duncan Castells said from the British newspaper The Times could worry Real Madrid a lot, when he stressed that City would move quickly for Mbappe, and would provide him with all possible financial capabilities to come to the Emirates Stadium.
It is logical that City are interested in signing Mbappe after the failure to sign Harry Kane this summer from Tottenham and the urgent need to sign a top scorer to succeed Sergio Aguero, who moved to Barcelona.
Now Real Madrid has to deal with a new imminent danger posed by Manchester City, in addition to the other danger by the possibility of persuading Paris Mbappe to stay in light of the historical offer made to the player, which was said to have reached 36 million euros annually.
Among what might tempt Mbappe to join Manchester City is the presence of Pep Guardiola at the helm of the technical leadership of the English club, as the player previously confirmed his desire to play in the Premier League one day.
In any case, the 22-year-old Mbappe is playing his season well with Paris Saint-Germain. In the first 8 meetings at various levels, he scored 4 goals and made an industry like them.
It is worth noting that the English newspapers earlier linked Manchester City to contracting with Erling Haaland as well, although the Norwegian’s operation would be very expensive due to his agent Mino Raiola and the value of the penalty clause with Dortmund of 100 million euros.
