Jose Mourinho wants Manchester United to rival Paris Saint-Germain for the signature of Kylian Mbappe who is on loan at the Parc Des Princess from AS Monaco, according to reports.
Mbappe broke into the limelight last season after helping Monaco to the French Ligue 1 title for the first time in 17 years and also helping the Ligue1 Champions to the semifinals of the Champions League.
PSG want him on a permanent basis but the FIFA financial fair play hindered the move after they broke the bank to sign Neymar from Barcelona in a world record fee of €222 million.
Manchester United set to unleash mayhem on Burnley
Manchester United didn’t compete for the signature of the French international last season but they are set to rival PSG as Mourinho has told his agent that the teen is definitely of interest.
The big problem for Mourinho, reports Don Balon, is a ceiling placed on player offers by Manchester United vice-chairman exec Ed Woodward and his board.
Currently on-loan at PSG, Mbappe is expected to sign permanently next summer for €180m - unless a rival club comes in with an extraordinary counter offer.
