Manchester United have identify a possible Cristiano Ronaldo replacement with €500k per-week star set to leave.
The PSG star Kylian Mbappe has been linked to Man United as a possible Cristiano Ronaldo replacement.
Ronaldo appears to be on the verge of leaving Old Trafford given the shocking revelations made during an interview with Piers Morgan on TalkTV.
Ronaldo attacked the Glazers, claimed he doesn’t “have respect” for United manager Erik ten Hag, and disparaged club legends Gary Neville and Wayne Rooney in an interview for the “Piers Uncensored” show, according to The Sun.
Comments also questioned the choice of Ralf Rangnick as manager last season and his perceived lack of improvements to club facilities.
According to sources, Ten Hag has already advised United’s executives that Ronaldo shouldn’t play for the team again.
Even before the interview, his future was seriously in doubt due to the impending expiration of the two-year contract he signed in the summer of 2021.
However, the interview seems to be hastening his departure, and United is already looking for replacements.
Mbappe is wanted by United.
Mbappe is the first name to surface from the constantly spinning Man Utd rumor mill, and his future at PSG is uncertain.
According to The Daily Mirror, the France star, who has been frequently associated with Liverpool in recent weeks, has emerged as a possibility now that the team can meet his absurdly high salary demands.
Mbappe, who signed a record-breaking contract to remain at PSG in May, will earn an astounding $110 million while playing football in 2022, according to Forbes.
Only a small number of clubs are able to pay that salary, but it would seem that United is one of them.
According to the Daily Express, it is also asserted that United have maintained their long-standing interest in Harry Kane, who is a potential Ronaldo replacement.
For the time being, both players will participate in the World Cup in Qatar over the course of the upcoming month as France looks to retain its title.
If they succeed in doing so, they will join Brazil (1958 and 1962) and Italy (1934 and 1938) as the only teams in football history to successfully win the tournament twice. Mbappe will bet that he can propel them to success.
