Another team he really, really likes...French journalist discusses Kylian Mbappe's move to Liverpool Transfers

Mohamed Salah, the Egyptian international, was the subject of intense interest from Saudi Arabia throughout last summer. This summer, the Saudi Professional League could once again be in the market, and a huge offer could be on the table.

The Liverpool ace will turn 32 this June, but his influence in the team has not diminished. With 18 goals and 9 assists in 27 games this season, he continues to lead the attack not only as a scorer but also as a chance-maker, and the possibility of extending his contract until 2025 cannot be denied.

The search for his successor is also underway, with names such as PSV Eindhoven winger Johan Bakayoko being mentioned. On the other hand, the relationship with French international Kylian Mbappe has been reported several times in the past as a less likely target.

The PSG forward, who has become one of the most popular strikers in the world of soccer, has scored 22 goals in 23 games so far this season. Real Madrid, which he came close to joining last year, is the most likely destination, but French journalist Julien Lawrence echoed the player’s sentiments, saying that Liverpool is also his favorite club.

“I really believe him when he says he hasn’t decided yet.”

“If he wants to stay a little bit longer or go somewhere else in the summer else as a free agent, Madrid very likely, Liverpool, less likely but, that’s another team he really, really likes.”

“Even if he leaves as a free agent, so with no transfer fee for PSG to receive, the agreement that he has with the club protects PSG and preserves the interest of the club.”

“The bonus that PSG were supposed to pay him at the end of the season whether he was leaving or not will not be paid.”

Realistically, it is hard to imagine the French forward playing at Anfield. The possibility would be millimeters away, as he remains a challenge to press from the front, which is necessary for Klopp’s soccer, and he does not have the capacity to pay the salary amount he is demanding.

On the other hand, it is time for him to decide to step up from Paris Saint-Germain, where he has been since 2017, and which club will have the world’s most outstanding talent in their hands…?
