Mbappe shakes off knee injury to make Manchester trip

With Real Madrid and Manchester City having been battling it out to try to sign Kylian Mbappe this summer, Kylian Mbappe's appearance in Manchester on Saturday will have worried some fans back in the Spanish capital with Real Madrid and Manchester City locked in battle for the 18-year old striker.

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

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

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.

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.
