Manchester City steel a march on Manchester United in their latest transfer tussle

Our Manchester City and Manchester United fans here in the Transfer Tavern love to wind each other up and they’re certainly doing plenty of that at the moment.

Indeed, it’s a pretty even argument at the moment as, whilst City are the side higher in the league and looking the more likely to finish in the Champions League spots, United are the ones with the major trophy this season so far.

That could all change, of course, if City get the FA Cup under their belts but it appears regardless of what happens this season the argument will go on for some time after that.

Indeed, the latest story to split the sets of the fans comes via The Daily Star, who claim that the Citizens are leading United in the race for talented full-back Benjamin Mendy of Monaco.

The Ligue 1 side have shocked everyone this season in the way they have taken on the big clubs in the Champions League and the way they’ve produced so many good young players – of which Mendy is one.

He could be on the move in the summer, though, and it appears City are the favourites to get him.

Thoughts, City and United fans? Let us know below!
