Chelsea and Liverpool target Layvin Kurzawa has admitted that he took a trip to rivals Manchester City this season, though the in-demand defender insisted there was no significance in it.

However, officials at Stamford Bridge and Anfield may not see it quite like that, especially as their Premier League rivals at the Etihad Stadium are one of their rivals for his signature, according to the Daily Express.

Reports at the time claimed that the 22-year-old had attempted to make a secret trip to Manchester City to hold talks over a possible £17million move. The trip took place while Manuel Pellegrini’s men were taking on Bayern Munich in the Champions League, which ended in a famous comeback win for them.

Kurzawa has now admitted that he was in attendance as Sergio Aguero scored two late goals to inspire a 3-2 win that would eventually help them into the knockout stages and a clash with Barcelona.

Though the AS Monaco full-back claimed that no talks had taken place with City that day and it was purely as a football fan. He also denied that he had plans on leaving despite links with Chelsea, Liverpool and PSG.

“Manchester? Yes, I was there to see a game this season but there was not a meeting with anyone,” the France international is quoted as saying the Daily Express report.

“PSG? It is true that PSG is a great club. But today I am at AS Monaco. Everything is going well for me, I have a contract until 2018. I have had no contact with PSG or anyone."
