Kylian Mbappe is the latest player to join the speculated transfer list of Manchester United.

After the likes of Gareth Bale and Marko Arnautovic being linked with the Red Devils for quite some time, Mbappe has now joined the rumour list.

Despite Jose Mourinho stating earlier that the club won’t be entering the market to sign an attacker this summer, the show by their forward line in the closing stages of the season has somewhat paved the way for an imminent arrival of another star player.

It is believed that United want to be lethal in the attacking third, and challenge the likes of Liverpool and Man City when it comes to getting goals. Also, the prospect of Champions League is another reason.

And now, according to Don Balon, Paris Saint-Germain starlet Kylian Mbappe is in Mourinho’s sights, and there could be a straightforward bid submitted for the 19-year-old.

With Anthony Martial not happy with the game time at the Mancunian club, United are believed to be interested in an offer that would see him be a part of the deal involving Mbappe.
