Entourage of Kylian Mbappe to meet with Manchester City amid Liverpool links

The transfer rumour mill is abuzz with reports that Kylian Mbappe and his entourage remain set to hold discussions with Manchester City officials, igniting speculation about the Paris Saint-Germain prodigy’s next destination. For Liverpool fans, this news raises eyebrows and prompts reflection on what might have been, as Mbappe’s potential move to their Premier League rivals seems to gather momentum.

That is as per ECHO. Since bursting onto the scene with Monaco, Kylian Mbappe has been a name on every football enthusiast’s lips. His electrifying pace, clinical finishing, and flair have made him one of the most sought-after talents in world football. Now, with his intentions to leave PSG at the end of the season known, the race to secure his signature has intensified.

Real Madrid have, for long, remained in the front seat, touted as Mbappe’s preferred destination, with the allure of donning the famous white jersey at the Santiago Bernabeu proving hard to resist for many young footballers. However, Liverpool have also seen themselves linked with the French superstar since 2020, fueling dreams of seeing him grace the hallowed Anfield turf in the famous red kit.

Despite this longstanding interest from Liverpool, the likelihood of Mbappe making the switch to Merseyside appears slim. The financial implications of such a transfer, coupled with stiff competition from European heavyweights like Real Madrid, present significant obstacles for the Reds. While the allure of playing under Jurgen Klopp’s management and alongside stars like Mohamed Salah and Virgil van Dijk is undoubtedly appealing, the practicalities of engineering a deal of this magnitude seem daunting.

Kili-Kili to Man City?

For Liverpool supporters, the prospect of Mbappe lighting up the Premier League in the colours of Manchester City is a bitter pill to swallow. The rivalry between the two clubs, fueled by years of intense battles on the pitch, adds an extra layer of significance to this potential transfer. Witnessing Mbappe ply his trade at the Etihad Stadium, bolstering City’s already formidable attacking arsenal, would undoubtedly be a cause for concern among the Anfield faithful.

But let’s be real. No player dreams of playing for Manchester City, at least of Mbappe’s generation. Upcoming generations might want to play for them, but there are 115 reasons why they might not feature in the Premier League, for all we know. At the back of our minds, we know Mbappe wants to move to Madrid, but that is mere speculation, at least at this stage.

In the end, Mbappe would want to follow in the footsteps of his idol, Cristiano Ronaldo. Did he play for Liverpool? No. Did he play for Manchester City? Hell no, he was the star player for their rivals. But at Madrid, it is a different story. Mbappe would want to live that story of playing in the Spanish capital.
