Liverpool ready to break bank to sign €180m-rated French forward

PSG forward Kylian Mbappe has explained he’ll only leave his current club with his parents’ blessing amid ongoing the Merseyside giants transfer rumours and Real Madrid links. The 21-year-old winger has shone at the Parc des Princes in the last few years, firmly establishing himself as perhaps the biggest talent of his generation.

Kylian’s deal with the Parisians is due to expire in 2022, however, so it might be that top clubs will soon try to swoop for him if he doesn’t renew his deal. The Merseyside club have been strongly linked with Mbappe for some time now, and he’s given an explanation of sorts over how he might seek a transfer away from his current club.

France international insists he would only do so with his family’s blessings. “We make every decision together, as a family. I think it’s the strongest possible thing,” he said. “This has pushed me higher and allowed me to be where I am today.”

“Without them, it would be impossible, because sometimes you have bad moments. When you have bad moments in your career, you can see which people are there for you, and my parents are there for me every time. Without them, I don’t think I would have everything I do at the moment.”
