As reported by The Sun, Manchester United have joined the race to buy teenage sensation Kylian Mbappe from Monaco, potentially beating the likes of Arsenal to the punch.
After last summer’s world record move for Paul Pogba, Jose Mourinho is again on the hunt for marquee signings that he believes can turn United into a force both domestically and in the UEFA Champions League.
One such player catching his eye is Monaco’s Kylian Mbappe, according to The Sun, who say that the likes of Real Madrid and Arsenal are still major contenders for his signature.
Can the Old Trafford side put together a bid that again sends shockwaves around Europe?
Kylian Mbappe may be the teenager with most potential across the entirety of European football right now, blowing away Monaco fans and neutrals alike with outstanding performances both in Ligue 1 and the UEFA Champions League over the last season.
Scoring an incredible 26 goals and creating 8 assists in 44 appearances in all competitions, he’s taken French football by storm, apparently having all the attributes to be a massive success in the English Premier League.
With United hunting a potential successor to Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s contribution this season, Mbappe could be the perfect option. At just 18 years of age, he has the potential to become one of the best players in world football if he continues to develop at the current rate.
