Man Utd prepared to move big to sign €346,000-a-week sensation

Manchester United are looking to strengthen their attack in the summer transfer window and as per latest reports going on in the media, they are linked with French international Kylian Mbappe.

According to Don Balon, Man Utd boss Jose Mourinho is prepared to move big to sign the 19-year-old sensation from PSG.

The Spanish outlet have mentioned that United want to improve the quality of the team to compete in the Champions League next season and for that, they want to have an attacking trio of Sanchez, Lukaku and Mbappe.

The teenage starlet moved to Paris Saint-Germain last year and in 46 appearances (all competitions) for the Ligue 1 giants, he directly contributed in 37 goals (21 goals and 16 assists).

Mbappe can play anywhere in the attacking third. Monaco mainly used him in the center forward position in the 2016-17 campaign. However, at PSG, Cavani is the main striker, hence, they mostly deployed Mbappe on the right wing last season.

As per the provided Don Balon link, the reigning French champions have got financial issues at the moment and they could be thinking about letting Mbappe leave the club.

The Les Bleus star’s current contract with Paris Saint-Germain will expire in 2020 and as per renowned French source L’Equipe, he earns around €1.5million-a-month i.e. €346,000-a-week. The youngster suffered an ankle injury while training with the national team today. Fortunately, he has confirmed that he is “fine” (Twitter)
