Manchester United are prepared to include Anthony Martial in their bid to sign Kylian Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain, according to reports.

Jose Mourinho is in the market for a new attacker and is prepared to offload Martial following the 22-year-olds inconsistent campaign at Old Trafford.

Mbappe, meanwhile, was initially signed on loan from Monaco last summer but PSG agreed to pay £166 million to acquire the forward on a permanent basis.

PSG had considered selling Mbappe this summer if they were found in breach of UEFAs Financial Fair Play regulations, but the European governing body cleared the French club earlier this month.

According to the Sunday Mirror, United have registered their interest in Mbappe with the strikers representatives and are exploring the possibility of a summer move.

And United are prepared to sweeten the deal by allowing Martial – a player who they value at £80m – to return to France.

Last week, Martials agent Philippe Lamboley admitted that the forward wants to leave Old Trafford this summer.

After thinking about all the factors and possibilities, Anthony wants to leave Manchester United, he told RMC Sport.

There are lots of factors, and right now its too early to talk about them.

Manchester United want Anthony to extend his deal and do not want him to leave but we have not reached an agreement for several months.
