Manchester United have been urged to pay ‘whatever it costs’ to sign Kylian Mbappe after the youngster starred at the World Cup.
The 19-year-old has had a phenomenal rise to stardom over the last two seasons, culminating in France winning their second World Cup title in Sunday’s final in Moscow.
Mbappe scored four goals in this summer’s tournament in Russia, including one in the final, becoming only the second ever teenager to score a goal in a World Cup final.
He only moved from Monaco to PSG 12 months ago, initially on loan, before making the move permanent this summer, and former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has urged his old club to dig deep to sign him:
“He is a superstar. It wasn’t a shock for him to do that in a World Cup Final.
“He is the guy that Cristiano and Messi are handing the crown over to.
“He will be on the Ballon d’Or podium for the next 10 years.
“I hope my old club have got their cheque book out, saying ‘whatever it costs, we will pay it’.”
