Pep Guardiola has quashed rumours linking Manchester City with a move for Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe.
Reports in the media this week suggested Guardiola was lookng to land Mbappe at the Etihad in January, with Raheem Sterling likely to be sold in order to make the move happen.
But when the City boss was asked about Mbappe at his press conference ahead of Tuesday's Champions League game against Hoffenheim, he replied as Sky Sports reported: "That is not going to happen. Sometimes I don't understand where the news comes from. Manchester City don't have, and are not going to spend, the money that maybe Mbappe deserves, or PSG deserves.
"PSG is not going to sell this kind of player to any other club in the world for the next years, I guess. So that is not going to happen. Mbappe is not going to come here and we are not going to swap Raheem [Sterling] or another top player that we have."
