PSG superstar Kylian Mbappe ‘really, really likes’ Liverpool amid transfer rumours

Kylian Mbappe and his potential move to Liverpool has resurfaced in recent discussions, with speculation growing around his future as his contract with Paris Saint-Germain nears its end. Despite the tempting prospect, the likelihood of Mbappe donning the famous red jersey at Anfield remains a challenging pursuit for the Reds.

French football expert Julien Laurens via the BBC, shed light on the situation during a recent interview, expressing his belief that Mbappe stands genuinely undecided about his future. While a move to Real Madrid appears very likely, Laurens acknowledged the less likely prospect of a move to Liverpool, highlighting Mbappe‘s affinity for the club.

“I really believe him when he says he hasn’t decided yet. If he wants to stay a little bit longer or go somewhere else as a free agent in the summer, whether that’s Real Madrid – very likely – or Liverpool – less likely. But that’s another team he really, really likes.”

Mbappe’s admiration for Liverpool is no secret, with past revelations about discussions held with the club prior to his PSG move and his mother’s affinity for the Reds. As the World Cup winner’s contract approaches expiration (Transfermarkt), the football world eagerly awaits his decision on the next chapter of his illustrious career.

Despite Mbappe’s fondness for Liverpool, several factors make this potential transfer less plausible for the Reds. One significant obstacle is the financial aspect, especially considering Mbappe’s wage demands. The French forward is undoubtedly one of the highest-paid players globally, and meeting his salary expectations would pose a substantial challenge for Liverpool.

Moreover, Liverpool has historically adhered to a stringent wage structure, prioritizing financial stability and team cohesion. The acquisition of a player with Mbappe’s financial demands might disrupt the existing wage hierarchy at the club. While Liverpool has shown ambition in the transfer market, such a high-profile signing would necessitate a significant shift in their financial approach.

On the footballing side, Mbappe’s addition to Liverpool would undoubtedly be a monumental coup. His explosive pace, clinical finishing, and ability to create magic on the field align seamlessly with Liverpool’s attacking philosophy under Jurgen Klopp.
