- Cristiano Ronaldo has left Manchester United after controversial interview
- Red Devils are now reportedly considering ‘bringing in Kylian Mbappe’
- At just 23, the France and PSG striker has already passed 200 career goals
- Mbappé is likely to get the same salary as Ronaldo
Manchester United are considering Kylian Mbappe as a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo, who has parted ways with the club.
The Red Devils have been linked with signing a new striker for some time, but their search has accelerated following Ronaldo’s departure, which came as a result of an explosive interview with Piers Morgan.
In interviews, the striker’s position at Old Trafford became untenable as he openly criticized the club, Erik ten Haag and the Glazers.
Manchester United are reportedly looking to sign France and PSG star Kylian Mbappe
It comes after Cristiano Ronaldo left Old Trafford, leaving a huge hole in the wage bill open.
His contract has now been terminated, freeing up a substantial portion of United’s wage bill, and allowing him to look to the top echelon or European football for a replacement.
According to reports in MirrorUnited are keen on bringing in PSG and France star Mbappe in January, with the striker likely to cost them more than ‘£150million’ and Ronaldo earning wages of around ‘£500,000 a week’.
He also revealed that Napoli’s Victor Osimhen is being considered as a back-up striking option who could be available for January.
If Erik ten Haag can bring in Mbappe this January, it would be a major coup that could have serious implications for the Premier League.
A striker of Mbappe’s quality could make a big difference to United’s future prospects
Despite being just 23 years old, the Frenchman is already a World Cup winner and has scored an incredible 221 club career goals.
He put in an outstanding performance on Tuesday as he found the net in France’s tournament opener against Australia in Qatar.
A striker of Mbappe’s caliber could make a dramatic impact on United’s season as they look to re-establish themselves as a Champions League club.
