Monaco's Layvin Kurzawa held meeting with Manchester City, reports claim
L'Equipe has reported that Monaco left-back Layvin Kurzawa met with Manchester City ahead of their Champions League encounter with Bayern Munich on Tuesday, despite the player appearing to deny the rumour.
The 22-year-old, who made his first senior France appearances in the friendlies with Albania and Sweden earlier this month, tweeted on Tuesday evening: "Sorry for the rumours, but this evening it's the Champions League...in front of the TV."
Désolé pour les rumeurs mais ce soir c'est ligue des champions... devant la TV �� #LK3- layvin kurzawa 3 (@layvinkurzawa) November 25, 2014
Though Kurzawa, who is French-born but took the surname of his Polish mother, was not in the Etihad Stadium for Tuesday's game, L'Equipe claimed on Wednesday that he watched the game from a Manchester hotel room a short distance from the ground after having met City officials earlier in the day.
Currently sidelined by a thigh injury, the full-back, who played a bit-part role in Monaco's Ligue 2 title triumph of 2012-13 before establishing himself in the first team last season, is under contract at the Stade Louis II until 2018.
