PSG superstar Kylian Mbappe could join Liverpool this summer as ‘negotiations are ongoing’



PSG superstar Kylian Mbappe could join Liverpool this summer as ‘negotiations are ongoing’

Superstar Kylian Mbappe, 24, is looking to leave his club next summer and Liverpool have already asked for a signing

Liverpool’s alleged target Kylian Mbappe is set to turn down a new contract offer from PSG and leave the club next year.

Yes, it’s that time again. Despite signing a new two-season deal 12 months ago, Mbappe is reconsidering his future in Paris. And according to L’Equipe, this time he is determined to leave the French champions.
As Spanish broadcaster Cadena SER reported, the 24-year-old will reject the option to extend his current contract until 2025. As a result, Mbappé is about to enter the final 12 months of his contract, with plans to leave on a free transfer next summer.

L’Equipe says that while PSG aren’t too worried about this possibility – indeed, they’ve been here before – there is interest elsewhere.

The most surprising thing is that that interest would come from England. Liverpool have been cited as the “most persistent” club historically. The Reds are also alleged to have asked to sign Mbappé at the end of the summer of 2022.

Manchester United are another who could reportedly be considering signing the Frenchman once their takeover is finalised. Finally, as we know, there is another team intrinsically linked to Kylian Mbappé: Real Madrid. However, according to the Cadena SER report, the priorities of the Spanish giants are now elsewhere.

They’ll reportedly return for the man he rejected in 2022. But right now, they’re focused on bringing in Jude Bellingham and developing Vinicius Jr.

Mbappé is preparing for a new saga

Here we go again! It wouldn’t be a transfer window, or the rush to a transfer window, without a story from Kylian Mbappé to Liverpool. It could be that the Reds end up signing the superstar. If he’s available for free next summer rather than the £352m price tag PSG put on him after a row last year [The Athletic] then it’s certainly more of a possibility.

But even then, we just can’t see it happening. At all.

If the reports are to be believed, it won’t be due to a lack of interest on either side. Obviously, if a player like Mbappé is a real possibility, you should be interested.

He has his flaws about him, but he’s one of the most devastating players in the world. From the player’s point of view, his mother is known to be a Liverpool fan.

With Real Madrid appearing to be out of the running for now, there remains a real lack of options for Mbappé should he leave PSG. Would the World Cup winner be attracted to playing for Jurgen Klopp and why shouldn’t he be? It is clear that any kind of move depends on Liverpool returning to the Champions League. But when the summer of 2024 rolls around, hopefully they will be.

So no matter how much pain we feel and how impossible it may seem, we’re going to have to keep an eye on this, aren’t we? It just won’t go away. Until Kylian signs another extension with his hometown club, that’s unlikely to happen.


Liverpool line-up v Southampton and team news as fans have last chance to watch Milner and Firmino

Saint Mary’s await Liverpool’s final game of the season, with the fate of both sides already decided.

Southampton are bottom of the table after being relegated to the league earlier this month, while Manchester United’s victory over Chelsea confirmed the Reds will finish the season in fifth place.

It offers Jürgen Klopp a rare opportunity to experience his side selection, after hinting at ‘fresh legs’ in his pre-match press conference. Liverpool had something on the final day of all but one of Klopp’s full Premier League seasons, with the title already wrapped snugly in the other!

This is how Liverpool could act.

Team news

This is what the manager told us on Friday morning:

Darwin Nunez is available after recovering from a toe injury

Ibrahima Konate has undoubtedly contracted an illness

Andy Robertson ‘felt something in his groin’ during training

Klopp told reporters: ‘It makes sense for us to make changes’

Liverpool XI vs. Southampton

After an emotional farewell at Aston Villa at Anfield, there’s room for feelings at Saint Mary’s.

Roberto Firmino and James Milner both came on as substitutes in the Reds’ last home game but could be considered to start in what would be their final appearances for the club.

The possible absences of Robertson and Konate also raise questions about who might fill their vacancies in light of the recent system adjustment. With that in mind, Liverpool could look like this.

Milner becomes team captain in his final appearance.

Joe Gomez and Joel Matip replace injured defenders.

Firmino leads the line past Cody Gakpo on final goodbye

Here’s how Liverpool would line up:

Alison; Alexandre-Arnold, Matip, Van Dijk, Gomez; Fabinho, Milner, Jones; Salah, Jota, Firmino

The manager isn’t exactly the easiest man to predict at the best of times, but the nature of the game makes it even harder in this case.

Klopp could try to use the left-back to bring Milner onto the pitch as Kostas Tsimikas’ ability to occupy the left flank in the new system remains unclear.

Luis Diaz is also hoping to bounce back from a tough afternoon against Aston Villa as he continues his recovery from a knee injury.

As a result, we might see something like this instead:

Milner is expected to take Robertson’s place on the left side of the back four

Diaz and Gakpo join Mohamed Salah at the helm.

Gomez will line up alongside Virgil van Dijk as a centre-back

Here’s what the alternate team might look like:

Alison; Alexandre-Arnold, Gomez, Van Dik, Milner; Fabinho, Henderson, Jones; Salah, Diaz, Gakpo

It’s a rare Sunday free-kick as we bid farewell to true Liverpool legends and look to end the season on a high.

A win would see the Reds end the season with eight wins from their last nine games, which certainly wouldn’t be a bad start to the summer.
