Manchester City have already signed two players from AS Monaco this summer: Bernardo Silva made his debut against West Ham United last Friday, and Benjamin Mendy will play soon once he recovers from a minor injury.
But there’s still one player from Monaco that City could sign: it’s Kylian Mbappé, the most promising striker in football. City, Real Madrid and Barcelona are interested in him, and every day there’s a different rumor about where the young French superstar will end up by the end of the summer transfer window.
On Saturday, something else happened that made things very interesting: only two tweets were needed to make City fans go absolutely nuts about Mbappé.
The first is from Mbappé himself, who tweeted a picture he took with Leroy Sané in a Nike event in Manchester on Saturday:
The second is from Mendy, Mbappé’s former teammate and best friend. Mendy is amazing on Twitter, and he posted a simple GIF with a smart phrase as a response to Mbappé’s tweet:
Does this mean anything? Of course not, but every City fan who saw this tweet was very excited. Mendy is Mbappé’s best friend, Pep Guardiola really wants Mbappé, and Leroy Sané is now Mbappé’s new buddy. Who knows what will happen next, but the internet is a beautiful place and gave us reason to hope Mbappé is coming.
