Manchester City Owner Sheikh Mansour Gives 'Mandate' For Club To Sign PSG Superstar 'At Any Cost'

Manchester City are expected to rival Real Madrid in the race to sign Kylian Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain after Sheikh Mansour’s ‘mandate,’ according to stunning reports.

Madrid were unsuccessful in luring Mbappe to the Spanish capital in the summer after PSG rejected their staggering £171.7m deadline-day bid.

PSG are resolute on their desire to keep hold of Mbappe, whose current contract with the French club will expire in 2022.

Mbappe, 22, will be free to speak with foreign clubs from January and could sign a pre-contract agreement ahead of a potential exit from PSG.

However, Madrid’s ambitions to land the French forward could be scuppered by defending Premier League champions City.

Speaking on The Transfer Window podcast, Ian McGarry and Duncan Castles claimed that City owner Mansour has instructed the club to enter the race for Mbappe.

It is reported that the 2018 World Cup winner is ‘tempted’ by a potential move to the Premier League, despite his long desire to play for Madrid.

City are now ready to sign Mbappe ‘at any cost’ and are willing to table a bid in January ‘if they could.’

The club believes that an offer to PSG would put them as strong favourites to land Mbappe ahead of Madrid, who are keen to sign him on a free transfer now.

City’s desire to secure the services of the France international also means the club are prepared to offer him a bigger contract than what Madrid would table.

The reigning Premier League holders are pushing to sign a ‘top class’ striker in the January window or summer 2022 window.

Tottenham striker Harry Kane was heavily linked with City throughout the summer, but a move failed to materialise due to Spurs’ staggering £160m price tag.

City boss Pep Guardiola has Gabriel Jesus and Ferran Torres as potential striking options, but he is still keen to fill the void left behind by Sergio Aguero’s exit.

Guardiola’s men will resume their Premier League title defence on Saturday with an away trip against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.
