Kylian Mbappe is being “considered” by Manchester United as Cristiano Ronaldo’s replacement.
This week, the club terminated the 37-year-old’s contract, and he has since left Old Trafford.
After Ronaldo’s departure, United’s search for a new striker has become more urgent. This has been the case since the summer.
Ronaldo’s departure frees up a sizable chunk of the club’s wage bill and allows them to look to the top echelon or European football for a replacement.
According to the UK Mirror, United are keen to bring in Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain in January.
Mbappe is likely to cost them over ‘£150million’ plus a similar wage packet to Ronaldo of around ‘£500,000’ per week.
If Erik ten Hag could bring Mbappe in this January, it would be a major coup that could have a serious effect on the Premier League.
At 23, the Frenchman is already a World Cup winner and has netted an incredible 221 club career goals.
