Manchester clubs set to battle it out for Mbappe

Manchester United and Manchester City are set to go head-to-head in the race to sign superstar striker Kylian Mbappe this summer.

The supremely talented 19-year-old burst onto the scene during the 2016/17 season when his lightning pace and lethal finishing ability helped inspire Monaco to the French Ligue title and the semi-finals of the Champions League.

He moved to PSG last summer on year long loan with an obligation to buy for £166 million, but with the French side coming under pressure to comply with Financial Fair Play Regulations the Qatari owned club may be forced to pull out of the deal.

According to a report in the Mirror today both Manchester clubs have registered their interest in bringing the French international, who is rated as one the most talented youngsters in World Football to the Premier League.

Any deal however, will be expected to smash the British transfer record, and both clubs are expected to have to compete with Spanish giants Real Madrid to secure the pacey strikers signature.

Mbappe is currently in Russia were he became France’s youngest ever scorer at a World Cup, when he netted the winner in his Country’s 1-0 win over Peru.
