Manchester United are ready to go head to head with Manchester City for the signature of Kylian Mbappe this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that the Red Devils are keen on a move to try and bring the 19-year-old France international to Old Trafford as Jose Mourinho looks to try and strengthen his squad ahead of next season.

Mbappe spent last season on loan to the French club before completing his £166m move to Paris Saint-Germain from Monaco this summer.

According to the same story, PSG are being investigated under Financial Fair Play rules, and they could face being kicked out of the Champions League if found guilty of breaches.

The same report says that Manchester United are monitoring Mbappe’s situation at PSG with a view to potentially making a summer move to try and sign him.

The article also says that Pep Guardiola has already made it clear that he would like to add Mbappe to his squad this summer.

Manchester United are believed to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as they look to try and build a team capable of winning the title next season.
