With a vital game against Middlesbrough coming up, the Liverpool fans in the Transfer Tavern have nervous looks on their faces.
They know a win (perhaps less) would secure Champions League football for next season, though the swathes of local Kopites who frequent in their droves worry about a slip-up against the already relegated side.
So, many of them have turned to transfer rumours in order to take their minds off of it. Indeed, recent suggestions the Anfield giants had made a huge bid for Monaco sensation Kylian Mbappe had them dancing in delirious delight.
Still, reports from ESPN have brought the Reds crashing back down to earth today. They’ve revealed that sources close to the club insist no such offer has been made for the Frenchman, despite his recent rise to recognition.
Clearly one of the most exciting youngsters in world football, the 18-year-old has played a pivotal role in his side’s title tilt, as well as their journey to the Champions League semi-finals.
There had been suggestions Liverpool had offered a whopping €75m offer for him, though ESPN claim that is not the case. While they are thought to be monitoring his progress, they have not made an offer going off these reports.
Well, it was fun dreaming.
