A Qataris-based company eyes the purchase of Manchester United and while they have yet to secure the Premier League club, there are already rumors of what transfer targets they’d have their eyes on.
German football reporter Christian Folk reported on Wednesday that should the Qatari group led by Sheikh Jassim they are ready to bring some top French talent.
Folk notes that Bayern Munich Kingsley Coman, Real Madrid’s Eduardo Camavinga and Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappé are their top targets to improve the squad.
The Qatari’s Sheikh Jassim Group want to go for Kingsley Coman, Camavinga and Kylian Mbappé, if their takeover of @ManUtd is successful

Jassim reportedly offers at least $6.3 billion for the club in addition to the infrastructure investments and promised to wipe out Manchester United’s $620 million in debt.
Additionally, Jassim wants to buy 100 percent of the team, while his main rival, Jim Ratcliffe, is bidding for a majority stake at a valuation higher than $6.3 billion.
Regarding Mbappé, it would be interesting to see if both clubs being under Qataris ownership allows for a smooth transfer, or perhaps the 24-year-old has to run down his contract and leave as a free agent.
