Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has already publicly weighed up the chances of Kylian Mbappe joining the club. The Paris Saint-Germain forward looks set to leave within the next 12 months, with Liverpool strongly linked in the past.
Despite the summer transfer window nearing its end, Mbappe’s PSG exit is one of a few potential big deals still to be resolved.
Real Madrid submitted a £137million (€160m) bid to lure Mbappe away from the French capital on Tuesday.
PSG are yet to respond, but the attacking superstar wants to secure a dream move to Real either this summer or next.
The French giants risk losing Mbappe on a free transfer in less than 12 months if they don’t cash in on him before the upcoming deadline.

Addressing Liverpool’s reported interest in Mbappe in 2019, Klopp heaped praise on him but ruled out a move due to the club’s financial incapabilities.
He said: “Buying this calibre of player is difficult. I don’t see any club at the moment that can buy Kylian Mbappe from PSG.
“We are involved in the clubs that cannot do it. It is as easy as that. Okay, from a sporting point of view, there are not a lot of reasons to not sign him. What a player he is.
“But it is about the money, of course. No chance. Absolutely no chance. Sorry for killing that story.”

Earlier this summer, Klopp reiterated that Liverpool can’t financially compete with other European heavyweights in the transfer market.
“We all know the situation of Chelsea, City and PSG for example, for United I don’t know how they do it, but we have our way to do it,” Klopp explained.
“That was always the same. We can spend, we are allowed to spend the money we earn, that’s what we always did.
“That’s our situation. It’s not about me being surprised. I am never surprised by the financial power of Chelsea or City, or United.”
A move to anywhere but the Bernabeu appears unlikely for Mbappe, including Liverpool.
He will undoubtedly attract mass interest next summer if he’s available on a free transfer.
But his heart seems set on joining Real, the club he grew up idolising, and he has already rejected multiple PSG contract offers.
Mbappe’s future could be resolved very soon, but no one should expect him to arrive in England.
