Kylian Mbappe has reached a decision over his future, according to reports.
Kylian Mbappe has decided he would like to move to the Premier League this summer, and views Liverpool as his ideal next club, according to reports. However, a deal to sign the Paris Saint-Germain superstar will be no easy feat for the Reds.
Mbappe seems likely to leave PSG this summer, reports suggest.
The Frenchman is one of the hottest properties in world football and is expected to be one of the most expensive players ever.
His contract at the Parc des Princes runs until 2022, and reports suggest he wants out this summer.
In order to avoid losing him for free on a pre-contract agreement in January, it has been suggested that PSG will look to sell him in the summer so as to recoup some of the £166million they spent on him.
And according to Duncan Castles of the Transfer Window Podcast, Mbappe has his heart set on a move to the Premier League.
While a move to Manchester United would interest him, he apparently wants to play for Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool instead.
Castles said: “He, as we have reported, is keen on moving to one of two leagues for the next stage of his career, either the Premier League where his preference I am told would be a move to Liverpool.
“He likes Manchester United as a club, but his preference would be to work with Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool.
“Or [he wants to move] to Spain; where Barcelona are an option, but obvious financial difficulties and Real Madrid have pursued him since before he went to Paris Saint-Germain.”
Liverpool have been heavily linked with Mbappe in the past, with the player himself praising the club in public.
But despite Mbappe’s apparent desire to move to Anfield, a move will be less than straightforward for the Reds.
Real Madrid are also interested in the Frenchman, and are believed to be ready to go all-out to try and sign him.
Los Blancos didn’t make any signings last summer, with reports suggesting they wanted to wait for this year in order to move for either Mbappe or Erling Haaland.
And with Liverpool also set to go after a new centre-back, the chances of them being able to win a bidding war with Madrid are slim.
Klopp himself has insisted he feels the club will make signings, but dismissed chances of a massive spend.
He said: “I don’t think it is time for a massive rebuild like how I understand it.
“The squad of this year didn’t have the chance to play together one time really.
“I think it would make sense to have a look at that [problem] but on top of that, of course little readjustments will happen.”
