Former Bayern Munich full-back Willy Sagnol has said that Jurgen Klopp would make Kylian Mbappe a “king” at Liverpool.
The Reds have been linked with the PSG star over the past few months, with it even being said previously that signing him is the Anfield outfit’s “ultimate ambition”. The 21-year-old is one of the most exciting players on the planet, having already managed 90 goals in 120 games for his current club, including 30 this campaign alone.
“This club has a big advantage: With Klopp you have a coach with whom every player in the world would like to work. Mbappe would have to adjust under him: he demands a lot of defensive work from his strikers, which Mbappe is not yet good at. But he can learn that, especially from a guy like Klopp. No question: Mbappe could become a king with Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool.”
Mbappe signing for Liverpool would be a transfer that would truly shake the footballing world. For a start, he would likely set them back an absolute fortune – he is currently valued at £162m by Transfermarkt and it is not hard to imagine the Ligue 1 champions demanding more than that.
Would you like Liverpool to sign Mbappe?
Adding Mbappe to an attack that already includes Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino (49 goals between them this season) could well be breathtaking. In the current financially-restricted climate, though, it’s hard to envisage him making the switch to the European champions any time soon.
