PSG failed to register a goal as they were defeated 3-0 over two legs by Bayern Munich in the round of 16. While PSG is in pole position to win Ligue 1 with an eight-point advantage over second-placed Marseille. Still the UCL departure is considered terrible. Christophe Galtier, the head coach, could be fired, and Mbappe may also seek to leave the Parc des Princes.

Real would generally be regarded his major suitors owing to their common passion. However, according to CaughtOffside, who cites 90Min, the Spanish giants have decided to target Chelsea’s Kai Havertz instead. Real Madrid are on the lookout for a replacement for Karim Benzema in attack. While Benzema is set to sign a one-year contract extension.

Red Devils might afford PSG star due to Sheikh Jassim’s takeover

With Real out of the picture, Manchester United would be one of the most likely clubs to sign the electrifying Frenchman. Man United’s legendary history and large global fanbase ought to attract Mbappe’s interest. Erik ten Hag’s team may also finish the season on a high note by qualifying for next season’s Champions League. Also adding the FA Cup to the Carabao Cup they won earlier this season. Such accomplishments would demonstrate to Mbappe that Ten Hag’s idea is only capable of developing up.

However, if the Red Devils’ lucrative takeover of Sheikh Jassim or Sir Jim Ratcliffe goes through, they will have the funds to cover such expenses.

Mbappe playing in the Premier League would be great. With PSG and France, the attacker has established himself as one of the best players in the world. For example, he has 34 goals in 37 games across all competitions this season. Mbappe vs. Erling Haaland for the Premier League Golden Boot would be a thrilling goal-scoring duel.
