Manchester United have made another shocking move once again as they are reportedly interested in Monaco star Kylian Mbappe, according to reports.
The Red Devils are believed to have been monitoring the youngster since last summer before he made his huge-money switch to the Parc Des Princes Stadium, though it’s on a season-long loan deal.
Paris St-German was able to beat the Red Devils to his signature during the last summer but they may need to pay as much as £165m to their Ligue 1 rivals should they want the Frenchman to remain at the club on a permanent basis.
However, According to The Mirror, Manchester United are trying everything possible to ensure they capture his services before the start of the upcoming season.
As part of their move to convince Monaco to sanction his move to Old Trafford, Mourinho is willing to make a player-plus-cash offer with Anthony Martial as the sacrificial player.
The 22-year-old striker didn’t get it quite right throughout last season as he was made to start from the bench in most of the matches he featured in.
Monaco had earlier shown interest in the Frenchman but it will be very difficult for them to lose a very young and impressive striker.
The report also claim that the Reds are more than ready to release £80m alongside Martial to the Ligue 1 side so as to beat Manchester City and Real Madrid – who are also eyeing a move for his signature – in the race for his services.
