The French striker shared a picture on Twitter earlier after meeting City and German winger Leroy Sane:

Given Mbappe has been linked incessantly with a move away from the Ligue 1 champions, City fans would have been delighted to see the striker sharing a picture with one of their players.
But when new signing Mendy, who joined from Monaco in a reported £52million move earlier this summer, responded in exactly the same way City fans did:

That is exactly how City fans are probably feeling right now.
Given Neymar just made a €222million move from Barcelona to Paris Saint-Germain, Monaco could demand close to £100million to let go of Mbappe.
But all the talk coming from the Ligue 1 champions suggest they won’t sell this summer.
They’ve already let Mendy, Bernardo Silva, Tiemoué Bakayoko and Valere Germain go this window and losing Mbappe would be a massive setback moving into the new campaign.
