Manchester United have been linked with a sensational swoop for Kylian Mbappe with the France star reportedly telling Paris Saint-Germain he will leave the club at the end of the new season. Liverpool are one other side said to be interested in the striker.
PSG reached the Champions League final last season as well as winning a curtailed Ligue 1.
The 21-year-old mustered 30 goals and 19 assists in just 37 appearances.
Mbappe was unable to help PSG fire a way past German champions Bayern in the final though.
And now, The Times say that Mbappe has informed PSG sporting director Leonardo of his desire to depart the Parc des Princes in a year’s time.

The superstar would also be receptive to United interest and has already spoken of his admiration for Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp.
Back in January, Mbappe said: “What Liverpool do in this moment is amazing.

“They’re like a machine, they’ve found a rhythm and are like ‘we play again, we play again’. When you watch you think everything’s easy, but that’s not easy.
“The guys are focused, they play games every three days and they win, they win, they win.”
Mbappe would give Ole Gunnar Solskjaer a very exciting option at Old Trafford but he would likely take the place of Anthony Martial in attack.
He could also play on both wings meaning Mason Greenwood and Marcus Rashford could rotate with the World Cup winner.
Behind him the midfield would look very impressive with the likes of Bruno Fernandes, Paul Pogba and new recruit Donny van de Beek.
