Meanwhile, Lionel Messi does not want Cristiano Ronaldo to replace Kylian Mbappe at Paris Saint-Germain (PSG). Elsewhere, upcoming United manager Erik ten Hag is said to be interested in a Chelsea midfielder.

Lionel Messi does not want Cristiano Ronaldo to replace Kylian Mbappe at PSG, according to El Nacional. The French striker is ready to leave Parc des Princes this summer when his current contract expires. The Parisians are desperate to keep the player at the club but are making contingency plans for his departure.

The Ligue 1 giants already have a list of possible replacements and keep an eye on Ronaldo. The 37-year-old’s future at Manchester United is looking good, especially when the Red Devils are unable to qualify for the UEFA Champions League. The arrival of new coach Erik ten Hag also put the five-time Ballon d’Or team in doubt.

PSG wants to be the first team to own both Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo. However, the Argentinians did not like this project. The 34-year-old is unhappy with the club wanting to get rid of both Angel Di Maria and Neymar this summer. The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner enjoys a great understanding with the duo.

Messi was unimpressed with his decision to replace his two allies with a player with whom he did not have a close relationship with the Paris team. Cristiano Ronaldo is eager to leave Manchester United and move to Paris. However, the Argentinian player thinks the move could be more of a business. The 34-year-old could even consider his future in Paris should a move take place.


Erik ten Hag is interested in N’Golo Kante

Erik ten Hag wants N’Golo Kante at Old Trafford before the new season, according to The Mirror. The Dutchman is poised to take charge of Manchester United this summer. Ten Hag will likely oversee a roster overhaul in preparation for the upcoming season. He wanted Kante to be one of his first signings.

The French midfielder has an excellent record in the Premier League. However, the 31-year-old could be considered redundant in requirements at Chelsea this summer, especially with his current contract set to expire in 2023.

Ten Hag believes Kante can be an important cog in his midfield. The Red Devils believe they can free the Frenchman from the Blues.


Danny Mills sends Frenkie de Jong warning to Manchester United

Former Manchester City full-back Danny Mills has warned that Frenkie de Jong could struggle in the Premier League. The Barcelona midfielder has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester United before the summer.

Barça manager Xavi on Manchester United and Frenkie de Jong: “I have said many times that Frenkie is very important. He is a key player.” #FCB“… Then there is the financial situation of the club and it has to be decided. I’m not talking about Frenkie, in general”. #MUFC

Speaking to Football Insider, Mills said that De Jong’s arrival could be a repeat of the Donny van de Beek situation.

“Entering the Premier League is never easy, no matter how good you are. Especially if you come from Barcelona a few years after being in the Dutch league. You look at Haaland, but he’s different. He’s a physical specimen, sensational. He should have no problem handling the tempo and power of the game,” Mills said.

He continued:

“At Man United, you’ve got some players back. I hope they want Donny van de Beek back because there are links there. Man United will have options. All managers want to get back with a player they know and have worked with. In an important area like midfield, you need consistency and dependability. If that means you’re getting a player you’ve worked with before, as we’ve seen it time and time again, that’s usually the way to go. “
