Manchester City are one of the richest clubs in the world of football, as they are known to splurge huge amounts to bring in talents from across the globe, in order to fight for titles and keep their European dreams alive and running.
The blue half of Manchester is all set to repeat these actions in the summer, if reports from Le10 Sport are believed to be true, as the Sky Blues get ready to bid a whopping £94 million for teenage sensation Kylian Mbappe.
The current Monaco striker has been among the goals throughout the season for the Ligue 1 outfit, and his fine run of form in the Champions League, which has helped Monaco reach the semi-finals of the competition, has led to him becoming one of the hottest targets in football at the moment.
With 24 goals in 39 games so far, it is no surprise that giants like Real Madrid, Arsenal, Chelsea, and Paris Saint-Germain are all keenly interested in pursuing the youngster to reel him into their respective squads. But with the aim of making him the most expensive signing in the world, Manchester City could be the firm favourites in a race that will be very tightly fought and contested.
The 18-year-old reportedly had a staggering £72 million bid from the Red Devils of Manchester rejected earlier this week, which clearly sets the bidding bar at an insanely high level. And if the wonderkid does leave, which seems certain, Monaco will want every penny possible for their most valuable asset.
