Kylian Mbappe is holding out for a summer move to Man United, so he can be converted to a right-back like his idols Ashley Young and Antonio Valencia.
The Monaco wonderkid can have his pick of moves if he decides to leave the French Riviera, including the chance to play alongside Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid.
But, speaking through French translator Lee Satchell, Mbappe explained: “Playing at right-back for the sixth best team in England is every young Frenchman’s dream.
“If I went to Madrid they’d only try and get me to score a load of goals and express myself, and who wants that.
“Plus, I can’t wait to be hung out to dry in front of the media for no particular reason.
“You can’t help but feel inspired when watching United play in the Europa League this season, especially at the way Valencia isn’t allowed to cross the halfway line.
“I can see it now. Me at right-back, Anthony Martial at left-back and Paul Pogba in defensive midfield. A Jose Mourinho masterplan.”
“Who wants to be managed by the greatest Frenchman to play the game when you can play under Mourinho?
“My dream is to become the next William Prunier at Old Trafford, and I won’t stop until that happens.”
