Fans of Liverpool have been reacting to a post on Twitter, which relayed Duncan Castles’ claim that Kylian Mbappe would be interested in a move to Jurgen Klopp’s side.
According to Castles, who was speaking on a recent episode of The Transfer Window Podcast, the Paris Saint-Germain forward “likes Liverpool”, with the journalist going on to claim that the 22-year-old has made it “very clear” that the Reds are a team the forward is “interested in playing for” at some point in his career.
So far this season, the £403,000-per-week Frenchman has been in remarkable form for PSG, scoring 20 goals and providing six assists over his 25 Ligue 1 appearances, in addition to bagging a further six goals and three assists over seven Champions League fixtures.
However, after Anfield Watch relayed Castles’ claim on Twitter, fans of Liverpool flocked to have their say on the matter, with many appearing to be furious at their club’s owners, as they believe, despite Mbappe’s apparent desire to join their club, FSG will not pay what is required to land the forward.
Do you think FSG would ever shell out for Mbappe?
So, what exactly did these Liverpool fans have to say in reaction to Duncan Castles’ Kylian Mbappe transfer claim?
“This is so painful because if we were a serious club with serious owners then he’d be straight in the door this summer… Pain.”
“How are we paying his wage?”
“When you look at the players who would like to play for Klopp’s Liverpool it’s a real pity we are owned by FSG.”
“Love him as a player but can’t see too many clubs affording his wages, especially Liverpool. Would set a high bar for wage structure moving forward.”
“I don’t think we will pay his wage requests, he will want £300,000+ a week. It just won’t happen at Liverpool.”
“Means absolutely noting because we will never pay his wages or the fee for him.”
“Absolutely no chance.”
“Shame we’re owned by FSG.”
