EPL: Mbappe is set to replace Ronaldo at Manchester United in a surprise move.

Manchester United are “considering Kylian Mbappe” as a successor for Cristiano Ronaldo.

The 37-year-old has left Old Trafford after his contract was cancelled by the club this week.

United have been linked with a new striker since the summer, but their quest has become more pressing with Ronaldo’s departure.

Ronaldo’s departure frees up a sizable chunk of the club’s wage bill and allows them to look to the top echelon or European football for a replacement.

According to the UK Mirror, United are keen to bring in Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain in January.

Mbappe is likely to cost them over ‘£150million’ plus a similar wage packet to Ronaldo of around ‘£500,000’ per week.

If Erik ten Hag could bring Mbappe in this January, it would be a major coup that could have a serious effect on the Premier League.

At 23, the Frenchman is already a World Cup winner and has netted an incredible 221 club career goals.
