How Jordan Henderson and Fabinho exits could unlock Kylian Mbappe dream for Liverpool

How Jordan Henderson and Fabinho exits could unlock Kylian Mbappe dream for Liverpool

Mbappe is out of contract with PSG next summer.

It is all change at Liverpool this summer, with the Merseyside club in a state of flux that shows no signs of settling down soon.

A disappointing fifth-place finish in the Premier League last season has prompted a clear-out of Jurgen Klopp's squad in an effort to ensure it was merely a blip, rather than the start of a major decline.

James Milner, Roberto Firmino, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita have all been allowed to leave for nothing at the end of their contracts, while Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai have been recruited.

It could be a completely new-look midfield at Liverpool next season, with club captain Jordan Henderson and Fabinho also linked with summer moves to the Saudi Pro League.

Former Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard is keen to sign Henderson for Al Ettifaq, while Al Ittihad are believed to be readying a £40m bid for Fabinho.

Should both of those players leave this summer, it will mean Liverpool have moved more than £900,000 off their weekly wage bill when all summer departures - including the exit of loanee Arthur Melo - are taken into account, according to figures from Spotrac.

Mac Allister is believed to earn around £150,000 per week on his new five-year deal at Liverpool, while Szoboszlai is thought to be paid slightly less - around £125,000 per week - on his own five-year contract.

It means Liverpool have saved more than £600,000 on their weekly wage bill ahead of making any further summer signings.

Liverpool to make move for Mbappe?

That huge figure could be used to tempt some of the best players in the world to Anfield.

Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe has previously been linked with Liverpool and has already revealed he held talks with the club early on in his career.

Mbappe has just one year remaining on his deal at the Parc des Princes and is reportedly prepared to run it down, even if it means being benched by the French club.

The France international is expected to join Real Madrid, either for a sizeable transfer fee this summer or for free next year.

But should Madrid opt to wait, it could open the door for Liverpool to launch an audacious bid for the forward.

By that time, the club could be back in the Champions League and may be prepared to smash their wage structure to tempt the French superstar to Anfield – using the money they have saved this summer.

However, it remains to be seen whether Mbappe would seek to move to England, even if Liverpool could offer Champions League football.

While the Merseyside club could also be reluctant to offer the mega wages needed to make the move happen, with Mbappe reportedly earning a minimum of £650,000 per week at PSG, according to talkSPORT.

Nevertheless, should Mbappe remain in Ligue 1 for another season, Liverpool will hope to be in position to at least challenge for his signature next summer.
