Jurgen Klopp, the manager of Liverpool, has previously expressed his views on the potential signing of Kylian Mbappe from PSG.
Kylian Mbappe, the captain of France, is nearing the end of his contract with Paris Saint-Germain. His name has frequently come up in discussions about his future, with many speculating he might leave the Ligue 1 champions.
While Real Madrid have been a prominent contender for his signature, Liverpool have also been consistently mentioned as a potential suitor for the 25-year-old forward.
As the January transfer window opened, familiar reports began circulating once again. Le Parisien recently reported that Liverpool harbour aspirations of bringing Mbappe to Anfield. However, the financial aspects of such a move might pose challenges, making a deal appear improbable at this stage.
When questioned about Mbappe’s future amid increasing speculation, PSG manager Luis Enrique offered a vague response: “As I always have done up to this point,” Enrique explained. “It isn’t an issue that depends on me. I am not the one to respond to this question.”
Liverpool, along with many top European clubs, have been keenly interested in Mbappe since his days at Monaco. Yet, Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp, expressed doubt during the summer, stating he’d be surprised if they could finalise a deal for Mbappe.
“We laugh about it,” Klopp told Sky Germany, back in August. “I can say that I think he’s a really good player but the financial conditions don’t suit us at all. I wouldn’t like to ruin the story now… but as far as I know, there’s nothing to it.
“It’s possible that someone else from the club is preparing something and wants to surprise me… that hasn’t happened in the eight years that I’ve been here. That would be the first time.”
For Liverpool to seriously consider signing Mbappe, significant changes would be necessary, even if he becomes a free agent. Currently, the situation feels like a missed opportunity, especially since the World Cup winner has mentioned discussing a potential transfer to Liverpool before opting for PSG.
“I talked to Liverpool because it’s the favourite club of my mum, my mum loves Liverpool,” Mbappe admitted, back in 2022, . “I don’t know why, you will have to ask her! It’s a good club and we met them five years ago. When I was in Monaco I met them. It’s a big club.”
