Man City Re-Enter The Race To Sign Mbappe, Amid Reports Pep Has Had Dinner With The French Star
The Monaco hotshot is the most coveted striker in Europe this summer with a host of big guns chasing his signature.
Real Madrid, who are trying to offload Mateo Kovacic to Tottenham to raise extra funds, are huge admirers and desperately want the 18-year-old at the Bernabeu.
Arsenal are also interested, but both sides could be blown out of the water by French giants Paris Saint-Germain.
PSG are prepared to match any bid and wages offered for Mbappe – but they now face competition from the Citizens.
L’Equipe claim that Guardiola met the star for something to eat and could revive his interest in the ace.
This tactic should not come as a surprise as it is a similar tactic to that used by the Spaniard in the past.
He often calls or at least speaks to targets before completing any deal to learn more about their character and whether they will fit into his plans.
Despite their lunch date, which came before PSG’s interest, the Parisian’s still remain the firm favourites for the teen sensation.
But they are still yet to submit an offer to their domestic rivals until they receive a definitive “yes” from Mbappe.
The superstar’s father, who has previously spoken with Gunners chief Arsene Wenger, has met with PSG boss Unai Emery regarding a move to the French capital.
Mbappe burst onto the scene last season as he helped Monaco to win the title.
He scored 24 goals in 44 appearances for club and country and made his international debut against Luxembourg in March.
