Liverpool Handed Major Transfer Boost As Kylian Mbappe 'Asks To Leave' PSG

French superstar striker Kylian Mbappe has reportedly asked to leave Paris Saint-Germain after his contract comes to an end next summer.

Mbappe, widely regarded as one of the best strikers in world football, has been the subject of strong speculation for some time now, with Liverpool and Real Madrid tipped to be his main suitors.

And now RMC sports journalist Daniel Riolo has claimed that the 22-year-old has asked to leave the Ligue 1 giants after "losing faith" in their project.

During a recent radio interview, Riolo believes that Mbappe's wish to leave the club will give Liverpool a "free run" when it comes to signing the French talisman.

"I know that Mbappe asked to leave," Riolo insisted, while predicting that the world-class forward will join a new team this summer.

"However, it is complicated because first, you have to find a club that has the money to pay him.

"But the news is that he really does not want to say."

Liverpool are believed to be the frontrunners if, of course, Mbappe was to sensationally leave the French capital.

Meanwhile, Real Madrid are said to be more interested in Borrusia Dortmund star Erling Haaland - and the Galacticos are said to be closing in on securing his sought-after signature.

And after Riolo's comments, Liverpool fans will now hope this means they can now move into pole position for Mbappe.

A statement signing is well and truly needed for Jurgen Klopp's Reds, especially after the Merseyside club finished third in the Premier League and failed to win any trophies last season.

Riolo added: "The player does not believe in Leonardo's project and if he does not leave this summer, it will be for free next season.

"If Mbappe expresses this desire to leave, it means that he will have to find a club - then PSG will also need to look for a replacement."

Intriguingly, both Le Parisien and the Transfer Window Podcast believe that the Reds could finance such a move for Mbappe after a recent £540m investment. Talk about putting your money where your mouth is.
