Real Madrid appear to be on the verge of ending a long-running transfer saga and bringing Kylian Mbappe to Santiago Bernabeu, when his PSG contract runs out next summer and he becomes a free agent. Some outlets have even gone as far as to suggest that an agreement is already in place between the two parties.

We will see how accurate that turns out to be. But if Real Madrid do indeed succeed in signing Mbappe, then there could be a bit of a shake up at Santiago Bernabeu.

There have already been rumours that Real Madrid were ready to part ways with Vinicius Junior if or when Mbappe arrived. Could Manchester United try to take advantage of the situation?

As reported by Defensa Central (via The Hard Tackle), Manchester United are pondering a €200 million move for Vinicius. Whether Real Madrid will agree to part with the Brazilian international remains the question, but the Premier League club are prepared to show ambition in the upcoming summer transfer window.

Vinicius is one of the most important players at Real Madrid and has been for several seasons now. But it would be interesting to see where he would fit in Carlo Ancelotti's plans if Mbappe did arrive.

Both Mbappe and Vinicius are similar type of players. Both have shown the ability to play centrally but are believed to prefer being on the left flank.

Under such circumstances, if a transfer offer around €200 million did arrive on Real Madrid's table, one would expect them to at least give it a consideration. Also, the club are no strangers to doing business with Manchester United. In recent years, Raphael Varane and Casemiro have swapped Santiago Bernabeu for Old Trafford. Could Vinicius be next on that list?
