Liverpool have been linked with an audacious move for France and Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe this summer.
The Lowdown: Mbappe on the move?
The 23-year-old is undoubtedly one of the world’s best players at the moment, continuing to wreak havoc for PSG and registering 36 goal contributions (22 goals and 14 assists) in 29 Ligue 1 starts this season.
Liverpool have been linked with a move for the Frenchman in the past and now a surprise rumour has emerged.
The Latest: Liverpool back in the hunt
“His new suitor is likely to be Liverpool.”
PSG and France midfielder Jérôme Rothen has apparently been given new information that a different club has entered the race and may have a ‘new factor‘, with Liverpool named as the mystery club due to the player’s personal appreciation for Jurgen Klopp.
The Verdict: Only if Salah leaves?
While the idea of seeing Mbappe in a Liverpool shirt is beyond mouthwatering, it is almost impossible to see a move happening this summer – unless one thing happens.
The wages that he would demand would surely be deemed too astronomical by FSG, while the the current options at Klopp’s disposal are already great.
The only way a move could seem possible is if Mohamed Salah leaves the club, perhaps to PSG, with Mbappe heading the other way. FSG would surely be more willing to pay the big wages Salah wants to a much younger player called ‘the best player in European football’ and ‘unstoppable’ by Carlo Ancelotti.
