Leonardo Jardim has shaped AS Monaco into a superbly strong side this season, scoring an awe-inspiring amount of goals. With this wonderful form comes countless transfer rumors linking the French club’s biggest stars to the most dominant teams in European football.

Manchester City have been linked to several AS Monaco players such as Tiemoué Bakayoko and Fabinho, and now Thomas Lemar’s name can be added to the list.

The left winger has added seven goals and six assists to his side’s campaign in Ligue 1 title this season, earning him links to City, Chelsea, and Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich.

Although the Frenchman has performed fantastically, his services should not be required at the Etihad. Pep Guardiola possesses a plethora of talent on the wings with names such as Raheem Sterling and Leroy Sané on his plate.

City’s board splashed a major amount on these young wingers and there should be no justification in throwing more money at another player who will only hinder the growth of the other youngsters. We need defenders, and that's who we're going to sign in the summer.

While Lemar undoubtedly has a successful career ahead of him, he is not necessarily needed in a Sky Blue shirt. This rumor will likely never become reality.
