Latest on Manchester United News: Former Manchester United striker Dwight Yorke has boldly urged the team to pursue Kylian Mbappe, who is presently playing for Paris Saint-Germain (PSG).

In Yorke’s opinion, signing Mbappe would catapult Manchester United to the top of the footballing globe and replicate the impact Cristiano Ronaldo had upon his return to Old Trafford in 2021.

Mbappe has stated his intention to leave Paris Saint-Germain, and it is widely believed that he will run out his contract and join Real Madrid on a free transfer next summer, turning off the chance to join Al-Hilal in a record-breaking €300 million deal. Yorke is certain that United should not pass up the opportunity to sign the French superstar because he could hold the key to them regaining their position as the Premier League’s and the world’s preeminent power.

Yorke told OLBG that he was thrilled about the potential of Mbappe joining Manchester United. With players like Mbappe and Ronaldo, he thinks the competition between the two Manchester teams will push the Premier League to new heights and establish United as the best team both on and off the field. Yorke compared the potential effects of Mbappe’s entry to what Lionel Messi has accomplished for Inter Miami in Major League Soccer (MLS), stating that Mbappe has the ability to reach a comparable level of prominence.

York said: “Man United signing Kylian Mbappe would be great for the Premier League because there would be a rivalry between both Manchester clubs and their superstars. It would probably take Man United back to the number one team on and off the pitch as well. Man United have not been the number-one team on the pitch for years now, but signing Mbappe elevates us to that status.

“You see what Lionel Messi has done at Inter Miami, I think that’s what Mbappe would do to Man United if he ends up at Old Trafford. It would set the club apart from the others. The Premier League is already the number one league in the world, it just goes up another notch if Mbappe comes. 

“If Mbappe signs for Man United, it might make us favourites for the title. The lift it would give players would make a difference. I’ve played in teams where there are class players in certain positions that give you that extra 20% lift. The Man United players would get a buzz, Manchester as a city would be buzzing, the fans will be buzzing, and it would elevate the players and club to another level.

“I’ll say for now that signing Mbappe makes Man United at least second-favourites for the Premier League title. Mbappe would have the same impact on Manchester as Cristiano Ronaldo did when he signed for Man United in 2021. Mbappe is the most exciting footballer in the world as we speak, obviously, Lionel Messi and Ronaldo both still have the massive following but Mbappe is on his way to being up there with them. I certainly would be extremely excited as a player and fan if he signs.”

Although it is unlikely that Manchester United would be able to sign Mbappe given their present financial restrictions, there is some hope as PSG is allegedly considering the possibility of loaning him out this summer in exchange for a loan fee. As a result, in addition to United, other Premier League giants Chelsea and Tottenham are also interested in signing the French prodigy on a short-term contract.

Manchester United will definitely be keeping a close eye on the developments surrounding Mbappe’s future as the hunt for his signing remains unpredictable. The appeal of bringing one of the world’s most exciting footballers to Old Trafford is apparent, and supporters can only imagine the thrilling potential that Mbappe’s arrival would bring to the club, despite the considerable financial constraints.
