Man City could beat Real Madrid to Kylian Mbappe signing after 'meeting' in Manchester

Man City could beat Real Madrid to Kylian Mbappe signing after 'meeting' in Manchester

They could make an audacious swoop.

Manchester City could be about to make a sensational swoop for Kylian Mbappe after a meeting took place in Manchester.

This week Mbappe told Paris Saint-Germain of his intention to leave the club at the end of the current season when his contract expires.

The 24-year-old came close to leaving PSG in 2022 before he signed a new deal, and the French club had hoped to convince his to renew terms this summer.

The World Cup winning attacker has long been linked with Real Madrid, and the Spanish giants are heavy favourites to sign him when he becomes a free agent.

However, it now appears that Man City are making an attempt to snatch Mbappe from underneath Madrid's noses.

According to Cadena Ser, a representative of Mabppe met with senior figures at City last week.

Mbappe's main representative is his mother, Fayza Lamari, but he is also said to have three other 'unofficial' but trusted representatives.

The report from Cadena Ser claims that one of those other representatives travelled to Manchester and met club figures on Monday.

City trained at the City Football Academy on Monday morning before flying to Copenhagen ahead of their Champions League win on Tuesday.

It is claimed that several members of Pep Guardiola's squad saw Mbappe's representative at the training facility.

Kylian Mbappe is tipped to move to Real Madrid this summer. (

On Tuesday, the day after the Manchester meeting, Mbappe informed PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi of his intention to leave the club.

However, Real Madrid will fight tooth-and-nail to ensure that Mbappe is playing in white next season, rather than sky blue.

Another of Mbappe's representatives reportedly travelled to Germany and watched Real Madrid's Champions League win against RB Leipzig from a VIP area.

The representative is said to be a childhood friends of Mbappe, and is known by Real Madrid midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni, a close friend of the striker.

With Erling Haaland said to harbour ambitions of playing for Real Madrid one day, it could be that City want to hit Los Blancos right where it hurts.
