Kylian Mbappe ’emerges as shock target for Manchester United to replace Cristiano Ronaldo’… with the Old Trafford club ‘one of the few in Europe able to pay his £150m fee and £500,000 salary £ a week.”
- Cristiano Ronaldo has left Manchester United after a controversial interview
- The Red Devils are now looking to ‘bring in Kylian Mbappe’
- At just 23 years old, the French and PSG striker has already scored 200 goals in his career
- Mbappe would probably have similar wages to what Ronaldo had
Manchester United are “considering Kylian Mbappe” as an option to replace Cristiano Ronaldo, who has parted ways with the club.
The Red Devils have long been linked with the signing of a new striker, but their pursuit appears to have gained urgency following Ronaldo’s departure, which came as a result of an explosive interview with Piers Morgan.
In the interview, the striker’s position at Old Trafford became untenable as he openly criticized the club, Erik ten Hag and the Glazers.
Manchester United are looking to sign France and PSG star Kylian Mbappe
It comes after Cristiano Ronaldo left Old Trafford, opening up a significant chunk of the wage bill
His contract is up, freeing up a significant chunk of United’s wage bill and allowing them to look for a replacement at the top level or in European football.
According to reports in the Mirror, United are ready to bring in PSG and France star Mbappe in January, with the striker likely to cost them more than “£150m” plus a Ronaldo-like wage package of around ” £500,000” per week.
They also report that Napoli’s Victor Osimhen is being considered as a back-up attacking option who may be available for January.
If Erik ten Hag could bring in Mbappe this January, it would be a major coup that could have a serious effect on the Premier League.
A striker of Mbappé’s quality could make a huge difference to United’s future prospects
