Manchester United’s stake holder Sir Jim Ratcliffe has said that he doesn’t think signing Kylian Mbappe now is ideal for the club due to the price tag. Mbappe has already made the decision of leaving PSG at the end of the season and many teams is now expected to be in the zone to get him for the next season. However Real Madrid are already in advanced talks with the player as reported by Fabrizio Romano.

With Mbappe’s impending departure from Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) at the end of the season, numerous clubs have expressed interest in securing his services. However, Ratcliffe believes that Manchester United should exercise prudence in their approach to such a high-profile transfer.

“It’s not that clever to sign Kylian Mbappe now,” remarked Ratcliffe, underscoring the financial implications of such a move. Despite Mbappe’s undeniable talent and potential to elevate any team, Ratcliffe advocates for a more strategic and economically sensible approach.

The billionaire businessman’s comments come at a time when Real Madrid has emerged as frontrunners in the race to sign Mbappe.
