Madrid have been described as hot favourites to land Mbappé at the end of the season, but City are hoping to snatch the star from under noses. It is claimed several members of Pep Guardiola's squad saw Mbappé's representatives at the club's training complex last Monday.

Mbappé will leave PSG after seven years in the French capital. He joined PSG from AS Monaco and has won every major domestic honour available, with only the Champions League eluding him at club level. He believes he has to depart for pastures new to give himself a better chance of winning in Europe, and that both Madrid and City would provide that platform.

Man City, like PSG, are one of the few clubs that could afford Mbappé's wages, which have put off other would-be suitors, including Liverpool and Arsenal.

- Adrien Rabiot is a man in demand this summer, with Barcelona, Internazionale, Newcastle United, Manchester United and Bayern Munich all interested in signing the Juventus midfielder, according to Ekrem Konur. Serie A giants Juve are yet to hand the 28-year-old Frenchman a new deal, which means he's an attractive proposition for any club wanting to sign him on a free transfer come July. Rabiot refuses to be drawn on his future, and instead remains focused on the end-of-season run in. He scored in a chaotic 2-2 draw against Hellas Verona at the weekend, which leaves Juventus nine points behind league leaders Inter Milan.
