Manchester United has reportedly lining up a bid for Kylian Mbappe, with Victor Osimhen also in a target for the club as possible replacements for Cristiano Ronaldo.
United are reportedly ready to rip up Cristiano Ronaldo’s contract after his explosive interview with Piers Morgan.
The Portuguese superstar, 37, stunned United with his shock outburst on Sunday night, slamming the club’s infrastructure and ambition while adding he has “no respect” for boss Erik ten Hag.
The Red Devils are now considering their next step, and one option is to tear up Ronaldo’s contract to make him a free agent.
That would see United need a new striker to lead the line in 2023.
And the Mirror claims Ten Hag has already turned to Mbappe as his top option.
The French forward, 23, is believed to still be unhappy at Paris Saint-Germain after demanding to leave last month.
It’s reckoned Mbappe saw red after the Ligue 1 champs failed to pay him part of his salary in September.
And United are now putting together a potential £150million offer, as well as a contract worth an initial £500,000-a-week.
Mbappe’s numbers show he is worth it, having scored 19 goals in 20 games this season.
But whether PSG will sell is another story, having handed Mbappe a new deal just six months ago.
That means United are also looking at other options, and one of them is thought to be Napoli’s Osimhen.
The Nigerian ace, 23, has emerged as one of Europe’s top strikers and has a host of admirers.
And Osimhen has looked sharp this season with 10 goals in 14 games.
It’s even reckoned Napoli could sell for £60m.
That’s after landing a new cult star in 21-year-old Georgian attacker Khvicha Kvaratskhelia, who has eight goals and 10 assists in 17 games since his £7m summer move from Dinamo Batumi.
