Man Utd prepare world class bid for Kylian Mbappe

| |

Manchester United have planned a world-record bid for Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe, according to reports from Spain.

The 19-year-old has enjoyed a stratospheric rise to the upper echelons of football following his exploits with Monaco in 2016-17, with PSG last season, and with France at the World Cup.

According to the report United are even prepared to let Paul Pogba leave in the coming months if it means they secure Mbappe.

It is suggested United would accept an offer of around €160-180m for Pogba and then use the majority of that fee to launch a staggering £300m move for Mbappe.

Barcelona are reportedly keen on a move for Pogba with the same article also suggesting Lionel Messi has advised the Catalan giants to make a move for the Frenchman.

While the reported fee for Mbappe is eye-watering, it is reported Mourinho sees the proposed offer as good value for a player tipped to reach the levels of Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi.

A high price would be required to tempt the France international away from Paris Saint-Germain this summer, and Real Madrid are understood to be keen on a move should his services become available.

PSG had considered selling Mbappe this summer if they were found in breach of UEFA’s Financial Fair Play regulations, but the European governing body cleared the Parisians earlier this summer.

Nonetheless, UEFA has stated that the Qatari-owned club’s finances would remain under close scrutiny.

Mbappe, who lifted the World Cup with Les Bleus on Sunday, is thought to have cost PSG £120m to sign from Monaco, making him the second-most expensive player in the world behind teammate Neymar.
