The Merseyside giants could reportedly be in a strong position to seal the transfer of Kylian Mbappe next summer if current developments continue. France international is one of the most talented teenagers in world football and would be a huge statement signing for Liverpool if they could pull it off.
Kylian is not currently looking eager to sign a new deal with the Parisians, which could mean they’re essentially forced to sell him in summer 2021 or they’d risk losing him on a free the following year. The current record fee is the £198m Parisians splashed to bring in Neymar from the Blaugrana.
Mbappe is ‘seduced’ by the Reds, so it could be that Liverpool have a good opportunity of beating Real Madrid to his signature, with the La Liga giants also linked with him in the report. Los Blancos are ready to go all-out to sign the 21-year-old forward in 2021 and Erling Haaland in 2022 as they look to the future.
Liverpool manager already has perhaps the best front three in world football in the form of Mo Salah, Sadio Mane and Bobby Firmino, but surely even they wouldn’t turn down the opportunity to sign the French star. Real Madrid were unable to afford the World Cup winner this summer due to the financial repercussions of the covid pandemic.
As things stand, it looks like the Merseyside giants could be in a very strong position to get this deal done by the time next summer’s transfer window opens. Even neutrals would surely be excited to see Kylian Mbappe in the Premier League if he does decide on a move to Anfield.
