Manchester United table offer for Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe

Manchester United have already sent an offer to Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe, according to French outlet Le10Sport.

The France international is leaving PSG at the end of this season as a free agent, and while Real Madrid are favourites to land him, the Red Devils have entered the race.

Man United have a new co-owner in place, and Sir Jim Ratcliffe wants Mbappe as a marquee addition to their attacking ranks.

The Old Trafford club have not won the Premier League since Sir Alex Ferguson left in 2013, and INEOS reckon the Frenchman would significantly boost their chances.

The 25-year-old has bagged 321 goals for club and country since turning professional, and having such a player would make Man United a force to be reckoned with in England and Europe.

However, whether they have a chance of beating Madrid to his services is debatable as Mbappe has dreamt of playing for the La Liga giants all his life.

Los Blancos are reportedly offering him wages less than what he earns at PSG, and Man United would need to table a better salary to have any chance of convincing the 2018 World Cup winner.

The Red Devils will also need to qualify for the Champions League next season to have any hope of luring Mbappe to the Theatre of Dreams but, as Le10Sport stressed, their ‘chances of seducing KM9 are slim’.

United are currently sixth in the Premier League table after 25 games, five points off the top four.

They need to improve their performances going forward to have a realistic chance of breaking into the Champions League places.

Man United have won 14 league games this term, but 12 of them were hard-fought as they won with a one-goal margin, and they could have easily ended up drawing most of them.

It will take the stars to align for the Red Devils to land Mbappe, but it appears they are willing to try their luck and it will be intriguing to see how things unfold.
