Liverpool keep a close eye on €160m-rated France international

PSG forward Kylian Mbappe has reportedly made the huge decision to run down his deal with the club and leave on a free transfer next summer. And according to the latest from Spanish outlet, France international has decided his next destination will be Real Madrid, despite also long being linked with Liverpool.

The report had also linked Liverpool with Kylian in recent times, but it looks like Liverpool are set to be disappointed as the French superstar plans to join Madrid on a free.

This is a huge story if it ends up being accurate, with the 22-year-old winger undoubtedly looking like he could be world football’s next big superstar after some world-class displays in recent years.

Still only 22 years of age, Kylian has already won Ligue 1 titles with PSG and former club Monaco, as well as the World Cup with the French national team.

Kylian’s stunning record of 132 goals in 171 games for PSG shows that he’s the real deal, and he could be a dream signing for Real Madrid to finally land their long-term replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo.

Liverpool could also have done with signing the youngster, however, as the German manager will soon need to think about replacing ageing attacking trio Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino. It would have been great to see Mbappe in the PL but Marca’s report now suggests that’s looking less likely.
