Liverpool Fans Get Excited Over Kevin De Bruyne's Conversation With Mo Salah And Jurgen Klopp
Liverpool fans were in a giddy mood after their team's impressive win over title rivals Man City, and their imaginations were even running away over the idea of signing Kevin de Bruyne.
Jurgen Klopp's team were in impressive form as they beat Premier League champions City 3-1 on Sunday to open up an eight-point gap at the top of the table to Leicester and Chelsea.
As if they needed anything else to be excited about, De Bruyne was spotted in a long conversation with Mo Salah and Klopp, leading Reds' fans to speculate over a possible future signing.

A few weeks ago fans of the Premier League leaders had started the hashtag #Mbappe2020, and got it trending on social media, after the club won their court case with New Balance.
The Reds are expected to sign a huge kit deal with Nike and supporters think that the American company's money and pull will help them sign a big-name player.
Mbappe was thought likely because of his ties to Nike but Klopp ruled it out last week because of the price the French striker would cost, clearly De Bruyne is now the object of their desire.
Salah and De Bruyne both played for Chelsea earlier in their careers but neither saw much playing time and left, for Roma and Wolfsburg respectively, before going on to become world-class players.
The pair never crossed paths at Stamford Bridge, though, with the Belgian being sold on January 18th 2014 and Salah joining the Blues five days later from Basel.
It's seriously unlikely that City would let De Bruyne leave, especially not to let him move down the road to Merseyside, or that the former Genk midfielder would want to leave.
