Manchester United are set to launch a world record bid to sign Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe, according to a report.

Spanish media outlet Don Balon, as quoted by, is reporting that the Red Devils are prepared to submit an offer that would eclipse the £200m fee that PSG spent on Neymar last summer.

The same article states that Jose Mourinho has instructed Manchester United to smash the world transfer record to sign the France international amid uncertainty surrounding his future in Paris.

Mbappe is still to finalise his £166m move to PSG after he spent the season on loan at Parc des Princes with view to a permanent switch at the end of the 2017-18 season.

The Ligue 1 champions are struggling to comply with Uefa’s Financial Fair Play regulations which has opened the door for Manchester United to make a sensational swoop to sign Mbappe.

The Spanish media outlet go on to suggest that PSG would listen to an offer in the region of €190m (£167.5m) if Manchester United include Anthony Martial in the package deal.

Manchester United have signed Brazil international Fred and Portuguese teenager Diogo Dalot in a busy start to the summer transfer window.
