Man United has offered Vinicius Jr to Real Madrid target Kylian Mbappe.
According to the Daily Mirror, Real Madrid is seeking to sell winger Vinicius Jr. in order to make a bid for PSG’s Kylian Mbappe.
Vinicius, 21, joined Real Madrid in 2018 for €46 million from Flamengo, although he only scored six goals in 49 appearances. The Brazilian is upset about the possibility of being moved on, but Madrid has to generate money in order to acquire Mbappe for more than €150 million.
Manchester United have been tracking Vinicius for some time and have been offered him on a loan with the possibility of a permanent move next year. However, they have already agreed to pay €85 million to Borussia Dortmund for winger Jadon Sancho and are nearing a €50 million deal for Real Madrid defender Raphael Varane, so they may not have much more money to spend.
According to the report, Real wants at least €75 million for Vinicius, who represented Brazil in the Copa America.

Despite a shaky start, his goal scoring has been outstanding. He has repeatedly shown that he is the greatest in the world.

After a fantastic season, Messi is the leading contender for the Ballon d’Or, and he is my personal favorite.”

On the possibility of Telles returning to Inter after a loan spell with Galatasaray in 2015-16, he added: “I can’t rule anything out since anything can happen in football. But, for the time being, we’re concentrating on assessing all of the available options rather than being in a rush to finish this or that procedure.”

GOSSIP ON PAPER
– According to The Telegraph, Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane may skip training in order to push a transfer to Manchester City. However, according to The Athletic, a transfer to Chelsea may be more probable for the England international. The 27-year-feelings old’s about joining Spurs’ opponents are unclear, but the report claims that the Blues’ offer is the most attractive to Spurs’ CEO Daniel Levy.

Fabio Paratici, the club’s managing director, is said to be interested on bringing the 26-year-old in on a two-year loan deal with the option to make the transfer permanent. Atletico Madrid and Inter Milan are also interested.
– According to Diario Sport, Brighton & Hove Albion may seek to acquire Barcelona forward Martin Braithwaite with the £50 million raised for Ben White, who has been linked with a transfer to Arsenal.
