PSG 'opened the door' for Mbappe to join Liverpool as astonishing asking price revealed

Paris Saint-Germain once “opened the door” for Kylian Mbappe to join Liverpool, according to a fresh report.

Liverpool are in dire form, currently languishing in ninth place in the Premier League, with an ageing midfield and misfiring attack.

Meanwhile, Kylian Mbappe is arguably the best player in the world, fresh off a World Cup in Qatar where he won the Golden Boot and netted a hat-trick in the final.

While it feels unlikely that the France international would move to the current iteration of Liverpool, the Reds were touted as a potential destination for Mbappe, should he leave PSG.


Indeed, late last year Spanish publication Marca claimed the French champions would be unwilling to sell Mbappe to Real Madrid, leaving Liverpool as one of the only options for the want-away forward.

PSG opened the door for Liverpool move

The Athletic have now also claimed PSG attempted to block Mbappe from moving to Real, insisting that any prospective sale would be to Liverpool.

A fresh report explains that in July, Antero Henrique who works as a consultant at PSG, opened the door for Mbappe to leave.



However, Henrique insisted that any exit would have to be to Liverpool, while he demanded, along with PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi, that a move would cost an eye-watering transfer fee of €400million (£352million).

Mbappe reportedly rejected that option, with the 24-year-old then eager to move to Los Blancos.

Mbappe’s previous Liverpool interest


Mbappe revealed he had held talks with Liverpool in 2017, before his move from Monaco to PSG. At the time the France star also claimed his mum supported the Merseyside club.

"We talked a little bit, but not too much. We talked a little bit," said Mbappe.

"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."
