Man United join the race to sign No.7 French goal machine

Kylian Mbappe has informed PSG he intends to leave at the end of the campaign as he considers joining PL giants Man United or Liverpool. France international has established himself as one of the best footballers in the world since joining the Parisians from French rivals Monaco in 2018.

Kylian initially signed for the Parisians on loan but made the move permanent two years ago and has now racked up 90 goals in 124 games for the club. Mbappe has already enjoyed substantial individual and collective success, winning three Ligue 1 trophies and of course the World Cup with the Les Bleus.

Parisians do not want to lose the superstar and have made several bids in an attempt to persuade the 21-year-old forward to sign a new contract on improved terms. But it is claimed that the French attacker has made it clear that he intends to remain at Paris for one more campaign before leaving next summer, possibly to join the PL.

The World Cup-winner has been vocal in his admiration for defending PL champions Liverpool but the forward is also interested in a move to Man United.

The Norwegian manager has identified Jadon Sancho as his main target this summer but Kylian could emerge as an alternative target in 12 months’ time if Red Devils fail to force through a deal before the October 5 deadline. Discussing Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool earlier in the year, Kylian said: ‘What Liverpool do at this moment is amazing.

Parisians, meanwhile, suffered a shock defeat to Lens in their campaign opener on Thursday. Kylian Mbappe was one of several PSG players to miss the game after testing positive for covid.
