Manchester United are “considering Kylian Mbappe” as Cristiano Ronaldo’s replacement.
The 37-year-old has left Old Trafford after the club terminated his contract this week.
United have been linked with signing a new striker since the summer, but their search is now more urgent following Ronaldo’s exit.
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.
