Manchester City are plotting a move for Kylian Mbappe should his deal to sign permanently for Paris St Germain collapse, according to reports.

The young France international joined PSG last summer on a loan deal with the option for the Ligue 1 leaders to buy him this coming summer for £167million.

The agreement was struck in the same window in which they bought Neymar from Barcelona for £200m.

Those mega-money deals have led Uefa to open an investigation into the Parisians that could potentially scupper the Mbappe agreement.
