Agreement in place! £200m Mbappe has transfer message for Manchester United
Manchester United and Real Madrid target Kylian Mbappe has assured Paris Saint-Germain fans that he will not be leaving this summer.
The exciting 20-year old Frenchman is the most highly-rated youngster in world football right now and is heavily tipped to take the mantle of worlds best player away from the likes of Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and PSG team-mate Neymar.
He has been heavily linked with a move away from PSG over the last few months with constant reports suggesting both United and Madrid are willing to pay close to £200 million in the summer to try and prise him away from French football and onto the big-time.
It is believed that Mbappe has dreams to play in either the Premier League or La Liga in the coming seasons, although PSG have no intention of selling one of their mpost prices assets, who has formed an incredible attack alongside Neymar and Edinson Cavani.
But after seeing his side get knocked out the Champions League by United earlier this week, the Frenchman has played down reports that he could leave at the end of the season and confirmed he has an agreement to stay with PSG for next season.
He told Telefoot: “I’ll be here next year for sure, that’s already agreed. It doesn’t help to worry about my personal situation so that’s it. Clear and precise.”
Here is what we think.
Mbappe is a brilliant young player that will develop into the best in world football over the next few seasons, so the news that he wants to stay put for now will disappoint United. But they will keep a very close eye over the next few seasons and possibly make a move then.
He is only 20-years of age so there is no need to sign him asap, although he would be a world class signing for the club.
