Try using something like this. Table names in an array, foreach over that array and process the results accordingly.

$id = '';   // not sure where you are getting this from
$db = '';   // again this was not in your example above

$tables = [
foreach ($tables as $table) {
    $sql = sprintf("SELECT * FROM `%s` WHERE client_id = %d", $table, $id);

    if (!$result=mysqli_query($db,$sql)) {
        echo mysql_error($db);
        // or break if you want to still check the other tables.

    // do something with the result here ($result)
