Kylian Mbappe’s meeting with Liverpool owner on private jet as transfer talk intensifies

Long-term Real Madrid target Kylian Mbappe is now the subject of interest from Premier League giants Liverpool as his Paris Saint-Germain contract nears its end.

Kylian Mbappe’s club future is once again the subject of discussion but some reports are now touting him with a move to Liverpool, rather than Real Madrid.

The Paris Saint-Germain superstar is out of contract with the French giants come the end of the current campaign and has long been widely tipped to join Real Madrid. The Spanish giants have been interested in the World Cup winner for nearly three years, but a move has never materialised.

However, there is talk that suggests that Los Blancos are no longer in pole position to sign Mbappe, amid interest from the Reds. The 25-year-old came close to making the move to Anfield once before, back in 2017 before his move to Paris.

At the time, Mbappe was weighing up the idea of swapping Monaco for Merseyside and according to L’Equipe, even held a two-hour with Reds owner John W. Henry on his private jet to discuss the idea of a transfer. The French outlet reported that Henry tried to win over both Mbappe and his family by flying his private jet to Monaco and inviting them on board.

The rumour mill has started to turn with reports suggesting Jurgen Klopp is keen on reigniting the club’s interest in Mbappe given they would not have pay a penny in transfer fees. However, PSG haven’t lost hope of convincing the forward to pen an extension at the Parc des Princes.

PSG president Nasser Al Khelaifi discussed the situation in detail while on the Rothen s’enflamme RMC podcast. He explained: “Look, I am not trying to hide anything. “I want Kylian Mbappe to stay at PSG. He’s the best player in the world and the best club for him is PSG.

“He is central to our project. We have done a lot of things, some have worked more than others. We have made mistakes and this is normal. Now we have a young team, with French players, and we are not in a hurry, this is for the long term.

“We have put together a team that is solid on a technical level and our system of play has been changed and it is a pleasure to watch this team. We play as a team, we defend as a team, it is magnificent.”

Though Liverpool are delighted by the fact that Mbappe would arrive on a free, it is believed that the Reds would have to restructure their entire wage system if the Frenchman was to join.

The Telegraph claim that Mbappe’s representatives are demanding a salary of £64.5million a year after tax, which works out as £1.24m a week. For context, Liverpool’s current top earner, Mohamed Salah, is on a salary of around £350,000 per week.
