PSG has told Liverpool how much Kylian Mbappe would cost this summer after ruling out a summer deal.
Every day, fresh stars join the Premier League.
Manchester City are interested in acquiring Jack Grealish and Harry Kane, Manchester United signed Javier Sancho and are close to getting Rafael Varane, Chelsea are interested in signing Erling Haaland, and Leicester City have made some excellent acquisitions.
Liverpool, on the other hand, is advancing slowly and deliberately.
This transfer window, the Reds have only made one signing, but it is a significant one.
Liverpool have struck a deal with RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga to move Ibrahima Konate.
In a £36 million agreement, the French centre defender will join Liverpool.
Liverpool, on the other hand, has remained relatively quiet while the rest of the Premier League’s top six have been making major moves.
Until lately, that is.
For the past several years, Kylian Mbappe has been the centre of attention in the world of football.
Mbappe has always appeared destined for success, whether at PSG or elsewhere, since breaking onto the scene at Paris Saint-Germain.
Kylian Mbappe made 47 appearances for the Ligue 1 club this season.
He scored 42 goals and assisted on 11 others in those 47 outings.
This season has been crazy, especially for a 22-year-old like myself.
Kylian Mbappe has recently said that he would not be renewing his contract with PSG and will depart on a free transfer next season.
PSG’s formerly firm attitude that he would not be sold is eroding, to the point that they have set a price for his sale.
PSG has placed Kylian Mbappe’s price tag at €125 million, according to RMC Sport Editor-in-Chief Mohamed Bouhafsi.
Liverpool have been pursuing him for years and might see now as the ideal time to recruit him.
Will Liverpool make a bid now or wait and see whether Mbappe becomes available on a free transfer next season?
