In the hope that he becomes Manchester United’s new owner, Qatari Sheikh Jassim wants Kylian Mbappe, Kingsley Coman and Eduardo Camavinga at the club this summer.
Jassim submitted a bid to buy the Old Trafford club at the end of April and according to The Sun, he wants Mbappe and his fellow countrymen at the club if he is successful with his bid.
Jassim made an offer of £5billion for a full takeover of the club as he faces competition from INEOS founder and owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe.
When a takeover happens, rumours aplenty arise and it’s believed that Jassim is intent on bringing three of the biggest names in football to the red side of Manchester.
Top of the list is Mbappe, who has 35 goals this season for PSG, earning a wage of around £1.2million p/week (per Capology) after he signed a contract extension in Paris last year until 2025.
Camavinga is the next name on the list; he was widely connected with the Red Devils while at Rennes before joining Real Madrid in August 2021.
Finally, there’s Kingsley Coman. His career has been eventful; after rising through the ranks at PSG, he went to Juventus in 2014 before joining Bayern Munich in 2017, where he has made 263 appearances. Coman, an injury-prone player, could be a danger for United, but at 26 years old, he still has a lot to give when healthy.
It’s a star-studded shortlist, to be sure, but even with his abundance of riches, you’d think Jassim would struggle to get all three targets to the club in the first summer window.
