Guardiola rules out move for Kylian Mbappe

Pep Guardiola has denied reports linking Manchester City with a move for Kylian Mbappe.

The French superstar has only just completed a £160 million move from Monaco to PSG earlier this summer, having spent last season on loan at the Parc des Princes.

However, with the French champions having also spent £200m to bring Neymar to the club just 12 months previous, they have been investigated by UEFA for a potential breach of Financial Fair Play.

That has led to speculation suggesting they could be forced to cash in on one of their star players, and with Raheem Sterling playing hardball over a new contract at Man City, speculation has suggested that a potential swap deal could be on the cards.

However, City boss Pep Guardiola has denied that to be the case, saying a move for Mbappe is simply not happening:

“Mbappe is not going to happen,” Guardiola told a press conference.

“I don’t understand where that news comes from – we are not going to swap for Sterling or any other top player.

“I don’t understand it. People should be more respectful.”
