Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag will be hoping to get his side’s season back on track when they face Luton Town on Saturday afternoon. 

The Red Devils have endured a difficult start to the season, losing nine of 17 matches across all competitions including a surprise 4-3 defeat against FC Copenhagen in the Champions League on Wednesday.

In the Premier League, United sit eighth in the table and Ten Hag will be hoping that they can return to winning ways against the Hatters on Saturday.

Off the pitch, it appears that uncertainty surrounding the future of the club’s ownership could soon be solved, with Sir Jim Ratcliffe soon expected to complete the purchase of a 25% stake in the club.

Once he does, United could be well placed to make a move for Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe, according to Football Insider.

The report claims that United are one of only three Premier League clubs – along with rivals Manchester City and Chelsea – that could financially afford a move for the Frenchman.

It is also claimed, however, that Ratcliffe’s proposed arrival at the club will put them in their strongest position yet to make a move.

Mbappe, 24, has established himself as one of the best players in the world in recent seasons.

The forward has made a total of 274 appearances for PSG across all competitions, scoring a remarkable 224 goals and providing a further 90 assists.

Despite his importance to the Ligue 1 champions, Mbappe faces an uncertain future in the French capital with his current contract set to expire at the end of the current campaign.

He is expected to leave PSG next summer, with Spanish club Real Madrid touted as his most likely destination.
