Ronaldo has officially left Man United when this team liquidated his contract ahead of time, because of his criticism directed at the host club in an interview with journalist Piers Morgan last week.
The termination of the contract with Ronaldo helps the Red Devils save £ 16 million of his salary, and this is enough money to help MU treat any star in the world.
Ronaldo left, Manchester United now have two true strikers, Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial. However, while Martial is constantly injured and in erratic form, Rashford has never been appreciated in the position of a striker.
Therefore, buying one more striker is an urgent matter for the Old Trafford team at the moment. According to the Mirror (UK), Man United is very interested in bringing in Kylian Mbappe, one of the best strikers in the world right now in the next winter transfer window.
To get the nod of PSG as well as Mbappe, the red half of Manchester will have to spend no less than £ 150 million, as well as the huge salary that the French striker is receiving in Paris, which is about £ 500,000 / week.
Although he just signed a new contract with PSG this past summer, Mbappe’s future here has never been stable. The 24-year-old striker once claimed that PSG betrayed him and demanded to leave in January. In addition to Man United, a number of clubs in England are also eyeing Mbappe such as Chelsea and Liverpool.
Besides Mbappe, MU also put Napoli striker Victor Osimhen in the ‘target’. However, the fee of this striker is not cheap, around £100m.
Kylian Mbappe is in very good form, both in the PSG shirt or the France team. He made a big contribution in France’s 4-1 victory over Australia in the opening match of the 2022 World Cup with 1 goal and 1 assist.
Mbappe would receives £500,000 salary replacing Ronaldo at Man United?
Man United are rushing to recruit a top-class striker to replace Cristiano Ronaldo, who has left the club.
Recently, the Red Devils have terminated the contract with Ronaldo, by consensus between the two parties. The search for a new striker has become more urgent for the Old Trafford team.
Mbappe is the perfect choice for Man United
Ronaldo’s departure from Old Trafford also frees Man United to want a large salary, up to £ 17 million in the remaining 6 months of the contract. This also allows them to attract the most talented players across Europe.
According to a report on the Mirror, Man United are keen to bring in PSG star Kylian Mbappe and the French national team in January. The 23-year-old striker is likely to cost the Red Devils more than £150m plus the same salary package as Ronaldo, around £500,000 a week.
Napoli’s Victor Osimhen is also being considered as a backup attack option for the Old Trafford team in January. Of course, the price of the Nigerian striker is also very high, possibly up to 100 million pounds.
A quality striker like Mbappe, or Osimhen can make a big difference for the Red Devils attack, for the present and the future. They need such players to get back to where they belong, or in the immediate future to be in the top 4 this season.
Despite being just 23 years old, Mbappe is already a World Cup winner, scoring 221 goals in his club career. He also put in a stellar performance on Tuesday, scoring in France’s opening match of the 2022 World Cup against Australia in Qatar.
