Manchester City are once again gearing up for a summer of big spending, and have already started the ball rolling with big money captures in the goalkeeping and attacking midfield department.
Manager Pep Guardiola will be keen to build on a steady enough opening season in the Premier League, and that will mean winning a trophy at the very least next season and progressing further in the Champions League.
Our landlord has been speaking to the City punters here in the Tavern this week, and once again they are filled with optimism about where the club can go next year. One key topic which was discussed was new signings, and just who the club should bring in.
One man on everyone’s lips at the moment is Monaco forward Kylian Mbappe, and we think City should be going all out to secure his signature.
Mbappe has looked a class act this season, smashing in the goals left right and centre and delivering scintillating performances along with his Monaco teammates.
There are plenty of clubs after Mbappe, but City are one of few who have the financial muscle to go and sign the teenager, and what a signing it would be if they could pull it off.
His pace, his goals, and his glaringly obvious ability make him an ideal target, and despite a hefty price tag, he would be definitely worth the fee over a number of years. Mbappe should guarantee goals and success long term, and City would be stupid to miss out on him.
