Kylian Mbappe has told Paris Saint-Germain that he wants to leave the club next year with Manchester United among clubs he is interested in joining, according to reports.
Mbappe has developed into one of the world’s best footballers at PSG following his big money transfer from Monaco in 2018 and has scored 90 goals for the club in just 124 games, as well as providing 51 assists.
However, according to The Times, the World Cup winner has informed the Parisians, who are desperate to keep him and have offered multiple new contracts, he intends to leave at the end of the season, to further his career.
It’s claimed that Real Madrid, who opted against spending big this summer in light of the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic, and Barcelona, who could still lose Lionel Messi next year, are both interested in signing Mbappe.
The report also details Mbappe’s admiration for Premier League champions Liverpool and adds that a close friend of the Frenchman claims that his ‘interest in English football also extends to Manchester United.’
PSG’s signing of Mbappe is the second most expensive transfer in football history and his contract doesn’t expire until 2022, so any transfer will come at a hefty price.
With United hoping to sign Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho in a deal which will likely cost north of a £100million, a move for Mbappe seems highly unlikely.
Meanwhile, Portuguese media outlet A Bola reports that agent Pini Zahavi is keen to engineer an Alex Telles transfer from Porto to Old Trafford.
United are monitoring left-backs Sergio Reguilon of Real Madrid and Dynamo Kiev’s Vitaliy Mykolenko this summer due to uncertainty in the position and Telles has also been heavily linked.
It is claimed that the noted representative sees a ‘window of opportunity’ for the left-back to move to United.
