Kylian Mbappe Could Cost Liverpool Or Real Madrid Just £91 Million
Liverpool might be able to sign Kylian Mbappe for the low low price of 'just' £91 million next summer, according to a report in France.
The PSG forward has reportedly told the club that he's ready to leave the Ligue 1 champions next summer and Liverpool and Real Madrid are his preferences.
Despite costing a world record for a teenager, at €145 million, the French champions are expected to make a loss on the player because his contract runs out in less than two years.
Previously it had been reported by AS that he could cost £111 million but, according to L'Equipe, that fee could actually be as low as £91 million, if the 21-year-old doesn't sign an extension at the club before then.
PSG expect to lose their star man next summer but are still hoping they can sign him to an extra year extension in order to get more money from the deal.
If they don't then any club wanting to sign him knows they can force a move for cheaper next summer with the selling club in danger of losing him for free a year later.

With still being so young any interested club, although in all honesty it's likely to only be Real or Liverpool, could afford to wait for the free deal.
Real wanted to sign the forward when he was at Monaco in 2017 but were ready to wait to sign him, as they didn't expect any competition.
PSG had just signed Neymar for a world record breaking £198 million that summer and would have broken FFP rules if they signed a player for another huge fee.
They got round the rules by taking teenage Mbappe, who had just helped Monaco win Ligue 1 and reach the Champions League semi-final, on loan for a year with an obligation to buy.
Since moving back to the French capital, where he was born, the World Cup winner has scored an impressive 91 goal in 125 performances in all competitions.
He has already won four league titles, two French Cups and two French League Cups as well as being a Champions League runner up and of course a World Cup winner.
After this season it looks like his future titles will be won away from France.
