Who can still afford Kylian Mbappé? Manchester United has the desire and the means for next summer, to create a record transfer in the history of football.
Currently firmly rooted in Paris Saint-Germain, Kylian Mbappé has revived discussions about his future despite himself by being untenable during the World Cup. Top scorer in the competition and author of a hat-trick in the final, the French striker introduced himself as the present and the future of world football, even if he could not retain the title with the Blues. Despite this, the player trained at AS Monaco is a dream, especially the few clubs that can afford it when he decides to leave Paris SG. For the moment, it is not topical, but given the disproportionate ambition of the young man of 24 years, his departure one day from Paris and the Ligue 1 is hardly in doubt. In the event of departure, Real Madrid is the assumed dream of Kylian Mbappé, who has already come close to joining the White House several times in his career. But the Parisian striker has also shown that he is capable of anything, as when he decided last spring to extend to PSG just a few months after confiding his desire to play with the merengue jersey.
As a result, hope is also there for English clubs, which are among the few to have the means to afford the services of the Bondy kid. This Sunday, January 1, Team Talk looked into the feasibility of his arrival in the Premier League. If Chelsea are brimming with ambition, it is often Liverpool who have been cited, with Kylian Mbappé confident in the past that this was a club he loved very much in England. But according to the British media, the Frenchman’s salary would literally explode the grid at the Reds, and could hardly be supported. This is where the Manchester United name appears.
Mbappé more expensive than Neymar, it’s possible
The Red Devils, who are still struggling this season to enter the Top4 and find themselves in the Champions League next season, recently lost Cristiano Ronaldo. A departure which will not necessarily be compensated in a capital way this winter, several loans being envisaged, but without necessarily a huge offensive expense. Cody Gakpo passed under the nose of the Red Devils, eventually signing for Liverpool. The names of Gonçalo Ramos or Dusan Vlahovic are mentioned, but United would like to try their luck in the Mbappé file. And for that, it will be necessary to break the record for the biggest transfer in history.

Asked about this very delicate financial subject, the journalist Dean Jones, confided in Givemesport, evoking the amount necessary to convince the PSG to let go of their star scorer. “ Someone who has just scored a hat-trick in the World Cup final, he has the profile for a player at 225 million euros. No doubt about it. We can hear right now that Jude Bellingham is going to be transferred, possibly for 140 million euros. This sets the tone for the price of Mbappé, who is the man who changes you a match. From this point of view, he is worth 225 million euros “Delivered Dean Jones, convinced that Mbappé will beat Neymar’s record (222 ME) if ever he was transferred next summer. Incredible spheres but which make it possible to sort out the clubs capable of signing the PSG striker. Real Madrid is obviously one of them, the Spanish club having solid finances, even if Florentino Pérez would clearly have it bad to let go so much after coming close to free recruitment in the summer of 2022.
