United Mbappe move blocked early doors

Manchester United were reportedly told Kylian Mbappe didn't want to play under Jose Mourinho which is why they didn't pursue a move.

Monaco's teenage striker is reportedly on the verge of sealing an incredible £160m switch to Ligue 1 rivals Paris Saint-Germain, who have already parted with a world-record £198m fee for Brazil superstar Neymar.

The loaded French outfit have seemingly beaten both Real Madrid and Manchester City to the 18-year-old's coveted signature, although United insiders state they dropped their own interest "almost immediately".

It's understood Old Trafford intermediaries did attempt to discover if a deal this summer for Mbappe was possible, but the word which came back from his camp was not what they expected to hear, citing Anthony Martial's own problems getting regular first-team starts under Mourinho at United.

The France pair remain friends from their time together in Monaco's academy but United also felt Mbappe's price tag and wage demands did not warrant too much time and energy to be focused in his direction.
