Newcastle United one of the shock favorites to sign Kylian Mbappe

One of the most shocking suitors to purchase Kylian Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain is Newcastle United.

On OddsChecker they have Newcastle United ranked as the joint second favorite to sign Kylian Mbappe this summer,

Newcastle have incredibly been put into the race to sign Kylian Mbappe by bookies, and their best price is currently the same as Liverpool and Juventus. Their best price of 25/1 to sign the youngster is shorter than Barcelona (40/1), Man United (66/1) and Bayern Munich (80/1).

This belief to land the brilliant forward all stems from Sheikh Khaled’s likely takeover of the English club. Khaled is the cousin to Manchester City owner Sheikh Mansour and the club is more than likely headed down a road of big purchases and deep pockets. Khaled is the same person who had a $2 billion offer for Liverpool rejected by John Henry last year.

Obviously, the French youngster will not have Newcastle at the top of his list right now, but if the takeover goes through and they can land a few significant signings, maybe they will wander into his mind. In comparison, he could be the Sergio Aguero of Newcastle, the man to bring them back to the pinnacle of English football.

Playing in the Premier League would also give him the American exposure to really set his popularity to another level, and as a younger player that will be attractive. It is clear after watching him play alongside Neymar Jr. that the 20-year-old wants to be the main-man for whatever team he is playing for.

Whether that is at PSG, Real Madrid, or somewhere in the Premier League, we do not know. What we do know is that Mbappe will be a force in world football for many years to come, and wherever he goes will be an automatic destination for other players to play alongside a future legend.
