Earlier this week, it was reported that Manchester City and Real Madrid had each made bids in excess of £110 million for Kylian Mbappé. It was rumoured that City’s representatives made contact with the Monaco striker on Tuesday night before launching a bid for the Frenchman.

Reports from Spain speculate that City and Madrid chiefs had some form of discussion earlier today during the clubs’ International Champions Cup friendly and made an agreement regarding Kylian Mbappé. According to Antón Meana or Cadena SER, the two clubs agreed that Kylian Mbappé’s price is exorbitant and neither will pay €180million (£160.3million) to sign him this summer.

Mbappé has been the subject of many transfer rumours this summer. The 18-year-old has been linked with moves to Paris Saint-Germain, Arsenal, Manchester City and Real Madrid but he still remains a Monaco player for now. PSG and Bayern Munich have dropped their interest, leaving City, Madrid and Arsenal as Mbappé’s main suitors.

Reports of a transfer agreement for Mbappé have been denied by all parties involved. James Ducker of the Telegraph reported that City have made no formal bid for the French teenager and that an enquiry was made in April, but Monaco’s £130 million asking price put them off. Monaco told Sky Sports earlier this week that they have not agreed a deal to sell Kylian Mbappé to Real Madrid for £160m.

Mbappé is currently with the Monaco squad as they prepare for their first competitive fixture this season in the French Super Cup against PSG. Both Manchester City and Real Madrid have expressed a serious interest in signing the French striker but nothing has been agreed so far. The future of Monaco striker remains uncertain; Real Madrid are the clear bookmakers’ favourites, but Manchester City cannot be ruled out. The youngster is set to remain at the Stade Louis II for at least one more season.
