Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp discusses the possibility of signing Kylian Mbappe.

Jurgen Klopp has opened up about the swirling rumours connecting PSG's star Kylian Mbappé with a sensational move to the Premier League giants. 

As Liverpool geared up for a crucial clash against Brentford, Klopp shed light on the complexities of securing a deal for the French sensation.

Jurgen Klopp, in his signature candid style, addressed the elephant in the room during his pre-match press briefing. On the topic of Mbappé, he remarked, “Obviously, I’m not involved in that, but I can tell you I’d be surprised if all the top clubs were. The top clubs I know, for most of them it will be tricky – wages, signing-on fee…” 

This statement seemingly cools down the heated speculations about Mbappé donning the Liverpool jersey next season, despite reports from Le Parisien suggesting the 25-year-old World Cup winner wasn't averse to the idea.

Madrid Beckons for Mbappé

The saga takes a twist with Mbappé reportedly informing his PSG comrades of his intention to exit the Parisian outfit once his current contract runs its course at season's end. 

Credible sources like Fabrice Hawkins hint at a long-anticipated move to Real Madrid, painting a picture of the final details being smoothed over to welcome the ex-Monaco prodigy to the Bernabeu.
