Kylian Mbappe's comments on Jurgen Klopp resurface as Reds 'plot sensational swoop' for PSG star

Kylian Mbappe's comments about Jurgen Klopp have resurfaced amid speculation around his potential move to Liverpool.

Mbappe, 24, is set to leave Paris Saint-Germain as a free agent next summer after turning down a new contract at the Parc des Princes.

He is widely expected to join Real Madrid, but PSG are desperate to get him off their wage bill for the upcoming campaign, opening the door for Premier League clubs to sign the Frenchman on loan.

That's according to the Daily Mirror, who claim that Liverpool are ready to offer Mbappe a one-year deal which would see the Reds pay his wages to PSG.

It is thought that Jurgen Klopp's side are 'encouraged' by Mbappe's previous show of respect for the club, and the fact that his mother is a Liverpool supporter.

What did Mbappe say about Klopp?

Indeed, the former Monaco forward heaped praise on Klopp and his team following their historic Premier League triumph.

Speaking back in 2020, Mbappe 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."

Meanwhile, Klopp has been equally complimentary of Mbappe in the past, admitting he 'loves him' as a player and person.

Speaking to RMC Sport (quotes via the Daily Mirror) ahead of a Champions League tie back in 2018, Klopp said of Mbappe: "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.

"Everyone knows him since he was 16, 17 when he impressed in Monaco's youth teams, and I saw videos of him when he was 17 and he destroyed defensive lines as he is doing now.

"He's at an unbelievable level of consistency at that age. He's an outstanding player, that's clear, but he can deliver, deliver and deliver, which shows he's really good educated boy and he knows what he is doing."
