Transfer: Why we didn’t buy Mbappe – Man Utd co-owner Ratcliffe

Manchester United co-owner Sir Jim Ratcliffe has said he doesn’t think the solution to the club’s problems “is to buy an Mbappe.”

According to him, it is better to build a balanced squad.

Kylian Mbappe has been confirmed as a Real Madrid player after leaving Paris Saint-Germain as a free agent.

Mbappe has put pen to paper a five-year deal worth €15 million a year after taxes and will also receive a €150 million signing-on fee, spread over his deal.

“I don’t think the solution is to buy an Mbappe,” Ratcliffe told The Times CEO Summit on Thursday.

“We are more grassroots than that. One player is not going to solve the problem at Manchester United. The first thing we need to do is build a balanced squad and ultimately maybe top it off with one or two players like Mbappe. It will take two or three summer windows to get to a better place.”
