Amid the ongoing speculation surrounding Kylian Mbappe’s transfer, Liverpool and Manchester City emerge as the primary contenders with a genuine chance to secure the services of the Paris Saint-Germain superstar.
As his contract approaches its conclusion at the end of the season, Liverpool find themselves intricately linked to a compelling endeavour to acquire him in the summer transfer window.
Despite this, Real Madrid maintain their status as the frontrunner in the race to secure Mbappe’s signature, while PSG remain a formidable contender to persuade him to extend his stay in Ligue 1.
Nevertheless, Liverpool may initiate discussions with Mbappe and his entourage this month, exploring the possibility of a prospective move to Anfield.
Dean Jones conveyed on the Ranks FC podcast that, within the Premier League, Liverpool and Manchester City stand out as the two clubs with the highest likelihood of securing Kylian Mbappe.
“I was trying to think of a mini ranking between these clubs themselves,” Jones said. “And who I would give the best chance of signing Kylian Mbappe, and I came out tied between Liverpool and Man City.”
On links to Liverpool, Jones said: “He gets linked with Liverpool pretty regularly, Liverpool play it down pretty consistently, but when you consider Liverpool as a football club, the combination of the project and ambition and how they want to be more of a global brand than they already are, Mbappe works.
“What doesn’t work is the figures, but Mo Salah might leave and if that Saudi Arabia deal did come for Salah in the summer and Liverpool got a big lump sum and got his wages off, that’s the only time you can think Liverpool can contemplate bringing in Kylian Mbappe because you’re replacing one of Liverpool’s lifetime icons.”
In a significant transfer like this, several elements are in play, and the alignment of various factors would be necessary for Mbappe’s potential move to Anfield in 2024.
Nevertheless, ongoing reports consistently indicate a realistic possibility of him making the transfer.
