Man United: For £157 million star, Sheikh Jassim to provide huge money

Erik ten Hag

If Qatari funding was available, according to journalist Steve Bates of GIVEMESPORT, Man United might be one of the few teams able to afford the signing of Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe at Old Trafford.

The Glazers put the Red Devils up for sale in November of last year. And are in in talks with a number of potential owners.

Also, Sir Jim Ratcliffe and Qatari Sheikh Jassim bin Hamad Al Thani may submit a second acquisition bid. For Man United this week.

According to The Mirror, the former plans to raise his first £4.5 billion bid from last month.

Journalist Johnson thinks this is a non-starter. Football Insider sources say the new owners at Old Trafford may make a play for Mbappe. In an effort to win over the Red Devils faithful.

Nevertheless, if a buyout is finalised by the summer transfer window, transfer insider Dean told GIVEMESPORT last month that a move for the French superstar – who joined PSG for £157 million from Monaco back in the summer of 2018 – may be “possible.”

Mbappe, a target for Man United

And according to Bates, if Mbappe is acquired by Qatari owners, only Manchester City and United will be able to afford his services.

When speaking about the prospect of Mbappe moving to Man United, Bates told GIVEMESPORT: “We know that because of the money he is on from the contract signed with PSG, whatever deal is done will cost huge money if he just decided to leave Paris in the summer.

“It’s money that new Qatari owners at Manchester United could only provide. I think the cost of that would rule Liverpool out.

“I would guess it would probably only put Manchester City and Man United in the frame in terms of the Premier League.”

Furthermore, Mbappe, one of the top players in the world right now, would be a fantastic addition to Erik ten Hag’s team. The Dutchman attempts to transform United into a team that can actually contend for the title.

The 66-cap French international has 31 goals and eight assists in 33 games this season. He also scored a hat-trick in Les Bleus’ World Cup final loss to Argentina in the penalty shootout.

Also, the 24-year-performances old’s in Ligue 1 have earned him an average WhoScored rating of 7.72 for the current season. He is placed behind Lionel Messi as PSG’s second-best performer and highlighting his significance to the French powerhouses.

Any new owners would be sure to win over the club’s fan base with this remarkable signing. Because the former World Cup winner would be a game-changing addition to ten Hag’s squad at Man United.
