Man Utd offer Mbappe what he wants to beat Real Madrid to PSG ace
Real Madrid have been strongly linked with a move for the 24-year-old, but their interest appears to be on the wane as there is increased confidence in France that the player is tending towards a new agreement with the Ligue 1 champions.
A report in El Nacional, meanwhile, indicates that Mbappe has two financially more attractive offers than Real Madrid as the summer approaches, with two clubs willing to offer him a "blank cheque" to sign for them.
One of these comes from the Saudi Pro League via Al-Ittihad, yet after the player rejected the chance to move to Al-Hilal out of hand last summer, the prospect of him accepting any such deal appears distant.
Man Utd, though, may offer Mbappe, who scored his 300th professional goal for France against Gibraltar in a 14-0 win on Saturday, a more tempting prospect.
The Old Trafford side stands on the brink of a revolution thanks to the imminent arrival of new minority shareholder Sir Jim Ratcliffe, who is expected to complete a 25% purchase of the club this week.
Mbappe is Man Utd’s dream
Man Utd’s need for a world-class attacking player is clear, with their forwards misfiring across the board this season.
Mbappe, therefore, would be an attractive prospect and indeed the Frenchman is “the dream” of the Red Devils, according to the Spanish report.
United are willing to play “whatever Mbappe asks for” in order to lure him to the club.
This may not be sufficient to attract the superstar, who finished third in the recent Ballon d’Or voting and has followed Real Madrid since he was a young.
Champions League football next season will be the minimum Mbappe seeks for a new club.
PSG appear to be in the driving seat at present, with the player said to be enjoying his life at Parc des Princes, but there is an element of the unknown with his future effectively up for auction.
