BREAKING: Man Utd plans surpise move for Kylian Mbappe to challange Pep Guardiola as takeover emerges

ANALYSIS: Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola could be handed a devasting blow to his Premier League title chances if Manchester United and Arsenal make some key signings this summer.

Manchester City and Pep Guardiola were able to fend off Arsenal and retain their Premier League title last season, but will be facing a strong Gunners side this time around while local rivals Manchester United will be hoping that after a strong transfer window, they can compete alongside the previous campaign’s top two. Guardiola has already suffered several blows but the possibility remains that he and City could be handed a devastating final month of the summer which may see them get eclipsed by their rivals. Here, Express Sport analyses what a worst-case summer scenario would look like for Guardiola.

Mbappe to United

Kylian Mbappe has publicly been put up for sale by Paris Saint-Germain, as the club believe that he will not renew his contract in the French capital and they hope to recoup their money on the star man. He has been the subject of a mega-money offer from Saudi Arabia but it remains to be seen whether he is interested in leaving Europe, even if just for a year.

Especially if Sheikh Jassim takes over at United, the Red Devils have a vested interest in Mbappe and bringing him to the Premier League would blow the title race wide open. If the PSG star does turn up on the red side of Manchester, it would certainly pose a problem for Guardiola in his attempt to retain the title.
