The question of who Manchester United will sign to replace Cristiano Ronaldo's power has taken center stage now that he is officially a free agent.

United would delay their move until the following summer, according to consensus.However, their plans have been moved to January, according to Fabrizio Romano.

Before and after the events in Qatar, domestic fixture lists were more condensed than ever thanks to the mid-season World Cup.

United appear determined to prevent that from happening as they push for Champions League qualification, and Erik ten Hag can certainly do without a lack of options up front.

Cody Gakpo from PSV Eindhoven appears to be the most attainable target among those who have been linked.The fact that PSV was unable to secure the riches of qualifying for the UCL group stages has increased the chances of a January swoop.

However, even more high-profile targets, such as Victor Osimhen of Napoli and Kylian Mbappe of PSG, have been suggested for a move to Old Trafford in 2023.

The final expression of United's intention would be to acquire it. Given that Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are both on the decline, Mbappe can legitimately claim to be the best player in the world at the moment.

Every year at PSG, Mbappe averages just below the goal per game mark. He is also France's talisman, and a lot of that nation's faith in Qatar is based on him.

Man Utd is investigating the January move for Mbappe.

The Mirror announced that Joined will investigate the chance of marking Mbappe in January. A transfer fee of £150 million was mentioned, which would surpass both United's and the Premier League's previous records for most expensive signings.

The current contract Mbappe has with Paris does not expire until 2025.Mbappe, on the other hand, has a break clause in his contract that allows him to leave one year early in 2024, according to the Daily Mail and a number of other media outlets.

As a result, according to French publication Le10Sport, PSG have Joao Felix of Atletico Madrid in their sights as they begin to select replacements.

The 23-year-old Portuguese player is at the end of his career with Atletico Madrid, and he and manager Diego Simeone are no longer compatible.

Felix is looking for a way out, and Atletico must sell regardless due to their financial situation.Atletico must sell a high-profile player in January "no matter what," as their financial outlook has been devastated by their failure to qualify for the UCL knockout rounds.

In 2019, Felix was acquired for £113 million from Benfica.He probably won't cost that right now, but Atletico will obviously try to get as much as they can.

Prior to his 2019 move to Spain, Felix was a target for United.He has also been talking about the club recently, but PSG is taking PSG's interest seriously. Felix is the "priority" transfer for PSG's chief transfer adviser Luis Campos, who, according to reports, made Felix his "priority" transfer during the winter window.

In the event that he had the option to make that arrangement, PSG's purpose in holding Mbappe -- who has recently stood in opposition to abuse by the club -- would reduce to a certain extent.

It is obvious that United may not be able to sign Mbappe in the middle of the season.Mbappe would have to give up a Champions League campaign in which PSG is a favorite.

Although acquiring Felix as a direct replacement would lay the groundwork for Mbappe's signing, a summer move seems more likely.

There is no reason why it can't be the Red Devils, especially if they have ambitious new owners at the time and if Ten Hag can lead United into the top four.
