Liverpool and Real Madrid have once again been linked with Paris Saint-Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe, who will have just one year left on his contract next summer.
Mbappe has two years left on his PSG contract and there is no indication he will sign a new deal with the French champions any time soon despite on-going negotiations.
The forward has scored 91 times in 125 outings for the French champions, winning three consecutive Ligue 1 titles, as well as reaching the 2020 Champions League final.
The 21-year-old World Cup winner is the second-most expensive footballer in history following his €180m transfer to PSG from Monaco in 2018, after an initial loan.
There is no evidence Mbappe wants to leave the French side with Le10 Sport reporting that the striker is weighing up his next move.
On the Madrid front, the claim that Zinedine Zidane wanted French trio Mbappe, Eduardo Camavinga and Paul Pogba this summer before Covid struck is not really new, while it is said that Liverpool ‘tried to sign’ the wonderkid way back in 2016.
The report also (rather bizarrely) claims that Mbappe’s family had a meeting with Tom Hicks and George Gillett on a private jet in Nice in order to discuss a deal in 2017. This is particularly unlikely as the two ex-Liverpool owners left the club (to much celebration on Merseyside) seven years before that event is said to have taken place.
Klopp has previously admitted it would be extremely difficult to pull off a deal for the striker but allegedly made contact with his father, Wilfried, to discuss Mbappe’s future in May.
Zinedine Zidane claimed last year that Mbappe dreams of playing for Los Blancos, while the striker has famously spoken publicly of his admiration for Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool.
