Manchester United eye up shock £150million transfer to sign Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe as Cristiano Ronaldo replacement, with Napoli’s Victor Osimhem also on Erik ten Hag’s radar

Manchester United are reportedly lining up a sensational £150million swoop to sign Kylian Mbappe to replace Cristiano Ronaldo.

The 37-year-old, who is in the final year of his deal at Old Trafford, could have his contract terminated following his bombshell interview.

Ronaldo’s future at Old Trafford appears to be over following his explosive interview

Ronaldo took aim at boss Erik ten Hag, stating he has no ‘respect’ for the Dutchman, while also laying into the Glazer family.

And according to the Mirror, his interview has accelerated United’s quest to secure the services of Paris Saint-Germain star Mbappe, with the Premier League giants prepared to fork out £150m.

Mbappe only recently penned a new deal at Parc des Princes until 2025 in a deal that made him the highest-paid sportsperson in history.

But there have been rumblings that he is unhappy at PSG, leading to speculation he could depart in 2023.

And it has been claimed that United will look to tempt the 2018 World Cup winner into moving to Old Trafford, where the Red Devils can offer him a wage salary of £500,000-a-week, in addition to performance-related bonuses.

The 23-year-old has enjoyed a stunning start to the season – chipping in with 19 goals and five assists from just 20 games in all competitions.


United are keen to bolster their attack in January, but it appears unlikely Mbappe will depart in the New Year with Les Parisiens into the knockout stages of the Champions League.

Ten Hag’s side, meanwhile, are in the Europa League, and face a horror tie against Barcelona in the knockout play-off round.

Mbappe is United’s ‘dream’ signing, but they know that it will be difficult to pull off the huge transfer – either in January or next summer.

Napoli marksman Victor Osimhen is also said to be on the club’s radar following his explosive start to the campaign.

The Nigeria international, 23, has spearheaded the Italian outfit to the top of the Serie A table by eight points after banging in nine goals in 11 top-flight games.

He is said to be a more attainable target in the winter transfer window.

It has been alleged that Napoli would be prepared to part ways with the player should they receive a fee in the region of £60m.

Napoli are braced to receive offers for Osimhen, who has also been linked with a move to Arsenal.

His agent seemingly ruled out a future exit last month after insisting that Osimhen is happy in Naples.
