Kylian Mbappe’s future has dominated headlines after he chose to stay at PSG over a move to Real Madrid, but the forward has confirmed he had talks with Liverpool.
Liverpool have readily been linked with the prolific forward, as far back as his time with Monaco, and Jurgen Klopp acknowledged “we’d have to question ourselves” if the Reds were not interested.
And Mbappe has now confirmed that Liverpool did enter the fray as the Frenchman weighed up his future, having been set to become a free agent this summer.
We talked a little bit,” Mbappe told the Telegraph of Liverpool and Klopp.
“I talked to Liverpool because it’s the favourite club of my mum, my mum loves Liverpool.
“It’s a good club and we met them five years ago.
It’s a big club.”
Liverpool’s interest in Mbappe has stood for some time but understandably, the eyewatering figures needed for any deal can see the club go only so far in expressing that said interest.
Klopp has said as much in relation to both Mbappe and Erling Haaland in recent weeks and months.
“Of course we are interested in Kylian Mbappe, we are not blind!” Klopp told reporters earlier this month.
Between Kylian and Liverpool, it’s all set.
