Everything Kylian Mbappe has said about Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp amid shock loan links



Everything Kylian Mbappe has said about Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp amid shock loan links

Kylian Mbappe has been linked with a shock loan move to Liverpool to escape Paris Saint-Germain this summer.

Reports in The Mirror claim Jurgen Klopp’s side have opened surprise talks with the Ligue 1 champions over taking Mbappe on loan for a year.

The World Cup winner refused to engage in talks with Saudi Arabia side Al Hilal after they lodged a world record £259million bid.

Mbappe has just one year left on his contract and has signalled his intention of running that down.

PSG do not want to lose him for nothing and are insistent he will either be sold or sign a new deal.

The French club have also accused Real Madrid of already having an agreement with the striker to join for free next summer.

Liverpool could offer a solution that would offer a way out for all the clubs involved.

If he were to join in a shock loan move, PSG would get some cash and his wages off their books.

Meanwhile, he would then get his dream move to Madrid in 2024.

Liverpool have long been linked to Mbappe with the player himself being an admirer.

Speaking in 2020, he said: “This season, Liverpool have been a machine in the Premier League.

“They have made winning look easy but the truth is that it is never easy.

“Performances like they have been having don’t just happen.

“To be as ruthless as they have been would come from lots of hard work in training and from having a very good manager.”

That same year, he said: “What Liverpool do in this moment is amazing. They’re like a machine, they’ve found a rhythm and are like ‘we play again, we play again’.

“They’ve lost zero games. When you watch you think everything’s easy but that’s not easy. The guys are focused, they play games every three days and they win, they win, they win.

“Now the problem is that everybody watches Liverpool, and everybody watches what we can do against them, so now they have to show they are strong again but it’s a very good team with a very good manager.”

That feeling is mutual with Klopp too who has praised the player in the past, while also quashing transfer rumours.

Back in 2019 when asked about Mbappe rumours, he said: “Buying this calibre of player is difficult. I don’t see any club at the moment who can buy Kylian Mbappe from PSG.

“I don’t see any club, that is how it is. And 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.”

Speaking before Liverpool faced PSG back in 2018, Klopp told RMC Sport: “I love him, to be honest. What a player he is and a nice lad as well, so he’s a really good kid. What a player, what a player.
