Manchester United have been told they must pay a record-breaking £130m to sign Kylian Mbappe in the summer transfer window, according to reports.
He’s enjoyed an incredible season at Monaco and has attracted interest from Europe’s elite following his brilliant form in the Ligue 1 and Champions League.
Reports claim Man United are leading the race to sign the Frenchman, but Jose Mourinho had a world-record bid of €110m rejected last week, as Man United have been told they must smash the current record fee of £89m by £40m.
The 18-year-old clearly has an incredible future ahead and Monaco are trying to hold onto his services by placing a ludicrous fee on his signature, but it remains to be seen what will happen this summer.
Mourinho has proven he has no problems breaking a transfer fee, as we saw with Paul Pogba becoming the world’s most expensive player last summer, but paying a fee so large on a talented 18-year-old could be a disastrous investment.
He’ll continue to be linked with top clubs around the world and if Mourinho sets his sights on the Frenchman, there is a chance that we’ll see him in a United shirt, as he’s proven that he can be quite persausive.
