Kylian Mbappe has revealed his plans for the summer transfer window amid news he could be the first signing of Sheikh Jassim’s Manchester United tenure.
The Qatari has bid £5billion to buy 100 per cent of United but faces competition from petrochemicals billionaire Sir Jim Ratcliffe.
The Briton’s Ineos Group have put a higher value on the Old Trafford club than Sheikh Jassim, though are merely looking for a controlling stake.
Should the Qatari banker be successful in his takeover aspirations, however, he has allegedly planned for an incredibly expensive summer transfer window.
Mbappe, who is arguably the world’s best player having netted 35 goals this season, has frequently been linked with moves away from PSG, despite having only signed a new contract with the club last year.
Mbappe opens up about PSG departure
Mbappe, who is PSG’s all-time leading scorer, has put a straight bat to claims he is looking to leave the French giants this summer.
The 24-year-old said, via TeamTalk: “It’s a privilege to play here. I’m from Paris and being at PSG is special. I arrived very young and I have grown and matured, both on and off the field.
“If it depended on what happens in the Champions League – and I don’t want to disrespect anyone – I would have already left!
“I’m here and very happy. At the moment I don’t think about anything other than making PSG happy.”
Nevertheless, questions surrounding the France captain’s future are relentless. Mbappe’s most recent PSG deal was only for an initial two years, with the third year an option that can be triggered by the player.
As a result, the forward will be entering the final 12 months of his contract in July, with Real and United thought to be lurking.
