Liverpool: Fans think Jurgen Klopp’s comments on Kylian Mbappe are ‘mind games’

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has dismissed reports linking Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe with a move to Anfield.

Spanish media outlet El Desmarque reported (via Daily Express) this week that the Reds were prepared to spend what would be a world record €250m (£215m) to bring the 20-year-old to Merseyside. According to El Desmarque, Liverpool would be willing to sell Mohamed Salah to Real Madrid if a deal for Mbappe were to be completed.

In 2017, L’Equipe claimed that Klopp spent “several hours” trying to persuade the striker, who was then with Monaco, to join Liverpool. [via Daily Express]

However, the Reds manager has now poured cold water on the possibility of the club signing the PSG youngster, with The Guardian quoting him as saying there is “absolutely no chance” of such a transfer occurring.

Paul Joyce, Northern Football Correspondent for The Times, shared further quotes from Klopp about the France striker on Twitter (via @_pauljoyce).

These Liverpool fans on Twitter weren’t taking Klopp’s recent comments at face value, though:
