PSG Identify Jadon Sancho As Potential Kylian Mbappe Replacement

Manchester United could be dealt a huge blow, as PSG line up Jadon Sancho as a replacement for Kylian Mbappe, if the forward leaves.

Last summer's transfer window was dominated for the entire time by the saga around Sancho's potential move to United, even still being talked about on the final day of the window in October.

Many hope that the saga won't drag on quite as long this summer, if United do want to reignite their interest in the Borussia Dortmund forward.

Should they do so though, they might not be alone, with PSG having lined up the former Manchester City youngster as a potential signing this summer.

The Athletic claim that Mauricio Pochettino's side will move for the England international if prized possession Mbappe decides he wants to move on.

Reports in Spain last week claimed that the World Cup winner, whose contract expires at the end of next season, has already made up his mind to leave PSG.

The 22-year-old supposedly wants to join Real Madrid, who have long been linked with him, and Los Blancos could make a move in the summer.

Despite Mbappe potentially leaving the French capital for nothing in 15 months time, the Parisien is still likely to cost a potential buyer a big sum this year.

That would help Pochettino's team move for Sancho, with Dortmund having valued him at £110 million last summer, a figure that put United off.

Should the Premier League club try to sign the 21-year-old again this summer they'd want the fee to come down 'significantly,' although negotiations with the player would be easier, having already agreed terms last year.

United reportedly have Erling Haaland as their number one priority this summer, with Real also interested in the Norwegian, but aren't willing to go through what they went through with Sancho again.

The club will decide quickly if the costs involved in signing the former Red Bull Salzburg striker, including wages and fees for Mino Raiola and Alf Inge Haaland, are worth it.

If they decided that isn't the case then Harry Kane would be their next target to solve Solskjaer's striker problem, with Edinson Cavani still not certain on his future at the club.

There are issues with a move for Kane too, with the 28-year-old set to cost at least £120 million and Daniel Levy determined not to sell to a fellow Premier League club.
