Manchester City: Fans not enthused by Kylian Mbappe reports

A report from Spanish publication Don Balon has claimed that Manchester City are planning to launch an audacious bid for Kylian Mbappe next year.

According to Don Balon [via Sports Mole], the Premier League champions view the Paris Saint-Germain forward as a player around whom Pep Guardiola could build a team if Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus depart, with David Silva’s exit next summer already confirmed.

Don Balon added that PSG value the 20-year-old France international at €300m (£268m), with @City_Chief on Twitter relaying the news to its followers.

Don Balon also claimed that Mbappe is open to the possibility of leaving the French capital if PSG again fail to win the Champions League this season.

The forward has only scored twice in six games for PSG so far in 2019/20, with a hamstring injury curtailing his recent involvement, but he has already scored 62 goals in just 93 games for the Ligue 1 champions.

Despite Mbappe’s excellent scoring record, these Manchester City fans on Twitter believe that he should not be a transfer priority at the Etihad Stadium and have instead called on the club to focus on other positions in identifying targets:
