What Kylian Mbappe has said about Liverpool transfer as FIFA agent claims Reds planning £214m bid

What Kylian Mbappe has said about Liverpool transfer as FIFA agent claims Reds planning £214m bid

Mbappe has previously spoken about Liverpool.

PSG star Kylian Mbappe has previously spoken out about a potential move to Liverpool amid a new report that the Reds are planning a huge bid.

Mbappe wrote a letter to PSG chiefs earlier this month in which he confirmed that he would not be activating an optional contract extension to stay at the club beyond 2024.

However, taking to Twitter, he confirmed that he had no plans to leave Les Parisiens this summer, meaning he will play for the club next season unless PSG take the decision to sell him.

Real Madrid appear the most likely candidates, having seen bids turned down for the forward in 2021.

ESPN claim that Los Blancos are willing to sanction a bid of over £172 million to sign the Frenchman, and will left the number nine shirt free following the departure of Karim Benzema to Al Ittihad.

However, a FIFA agent alleges that Liverpool are also willing to pay big money for a player that made an admission over a possible move to the club earlier in his career.

Mbappe on Liverpool transfer

FIFA agent Marco Kirdemir, speaking on Radio MARCA, has claimed that the Reds are willing to fork out around £214 million, plus bonuses, to sign Mbappe this summer.

He claims that Liverpool will offer competition to Real for a transfer of the 24-year-old.

Given Liverpool's well-documented pursuit of Jude Bellingham - and a report from The Times that claims they pulled out due to concerns over his cost - it would be a significant surprise to see the Reds submit any mega-money bid for Mbappe.

The player himself once revealed that he had held talks with Liverpool earlier in his career, when he was at Monaco.

He added that Liverpool had a greater chance of signing him prior to his move to PSG in 2017.

He told The Telegraph in 2022: "We talked a little bit. I talked to Liverpool because it's the favourite club of my mum. My mum loves Liverpool. I don't know why, you will have to ask her!

"It's a good club and we met them five years ago. When I was in Monaco I met them. It's a big club."

Mbappe also praised the Reds and manager Jurgen Klopp after they won the Premier League title in 2020: "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 have come from lots of hard work in training and from having a very good manager."
