Mbappe shakes off knee injury and travels to Manchester

W​ith Real Madrid and Manchester City having been battling it out to try to sign Kylian Mbappe this summer, the 18-year-old’s appearance in Manchester this Saturday will have worried some fans back in the Spanish capital.

The Frenchman was, however, only in the English city for a promotional event, even if he did make friends with City’s Leroy Sane.

By posting a picture with Pep Guardiola’s player, many fans of the English club went wild on social media, as recognised by Mbappe’s former Monaco teammate and current Sky Blues player Benjamin Mendy.

The other take-away from the player’s appearance at the event was the fact that he has recovered from the knee injury suffered during Monaco’s Friday night Ligue 1 opener against Toulouse.

Coach Leonardo Jardim said after the game that the player would be fine and able to play again in a few days, and so it seems.
