Liverpool are set to go head to head with Real Madrid in a bid to sign Kylian Mbappe next summer.
Reliable French outlet Le’equipe reports that Mbappe is unlikely to sign a new deal at PSG which ends in 2022 and both Real Madrid & Liverpool are likely destinations.
Real Madrid will hope the lure of having French legend Zinedine Zidane as manager would give them an edge over their Merseyside rivals, however Le’equipe also report that Jurgen Klopp is in constant contact with the Mbappe camp.
Mbappe has discussed in the past his admiration of this Liverpool side, back in January he stated
“What Liverpool do in this moment is amazing.“They’re like a machine, they’ve found a rhythm and are like ‘we play again, we play again’. When you watch you think everything’s easy, but that’s not easy.“The guys are focused, they play games every three days and they win, they win, they win.”
The outlet also reports that back in 2017 before Mbappe moved to PSG that one of the Liverpool owners met with the family of Mbappe on his private jet to try and convince them Anfield was the perfect destination for their son.
