Pep Ready To Go To War With Real Over R2.74bn Target

Pep Guardiola Ready To Go To War With Real Madrid Over €180m Target

By David Kappel - Jul 26, 2017 09:46 AM @kappilinho

Real Madrid have reportedly agreed a R2.74 billion world record deal for Kylian Mbappe, but Pep Guardiola's Manchester City are ready to hijack the move for the 18-year-old wonderkid.

The Spaniard has already spent €241 million (R3.67 billion) in this transfer window, the second biggest outlay by any club during a transfer period in history.

However, he does not seem to be finished with his spending spree as he is reportedly prepared to do battle with Real for Mbappe's signature.

On Tuesday, Marca claimed that Los Blancos and Monaco had agreed to a "deal in principle" for the teenage sensation, but the Daily Mail has suggested that City are not out of the race.

Guardiola apparently wants to lure Mbappe to the Citizens and is prepared to match Real's €180 million (R2.74 billion) offer, which would break the current transfer record.

A tug of war could ensue between Real and City, but the Spanish giants are believed to be the frontrunners to secure the player's services after Zinedine Zidane personally spoke to the young Frenchman several times.

Paris Saint-Germain are also apparently prepared to match Real's €180 million offer, but their first priority is Neymar.

The 18-year-old scored 26 goals and assisted another 14 strikes in all competitions for Monaco last season, and was voted Ligue 1's Young Player of the Season.

Watch out for Pep, he is build a very good team for the next 5 to 10 years. If you look closely on his signings, he is signing player who are under 28yrs. Compantitive young squad. He is building his own team compared to what he had at Barcelona and Bayern.

When its Madrid gunning this boy.....to many here "its a waste of money, its rediculous"......when its Pep for Man City its "a good signing". How hypocritic is that, are ppl still so afraid of Real Madrid's signing best players to assemble a competitive squard? What do they expect us to do, fold our arms and let our opponents build their teams whilst splashing billions......just because every jack and jill gets frustrated by Madrid signing power (purse)? Give us a break COWS, even if Mbappe is $500 Billion, we are going to sign him if we do afford that....see please.
