Kylian Mbappé reveals he twice held talks with Liverpool
Kylian Mbappé has revealed that he held brief talks with Liverpool on two different occasions because they are his mum’s favourite club.
The 23-year-old instead decided to sign for PSG from Monaco in 2017 for an eye-watering €180m (£153m) fee.
Over the weekend, it was announced that Mbappé would stay at PSG, signing a contract until 2025 though the club have reportedly paid the World Cup winner a stunning €150m (£127.5) ‘signing-on’ fee to remain in Paris.
Though it was believed to be a two-horse race for his signature, Mbappé discussed his involvement with the Reds brass.
“We talked a little bit, but not too much. We talked a little bit,” Mbappé told Jason Burt of the Telegraph.
“”I talked to Liverpool because it’s the favorite 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.”
Mbappé ‘s reported mega-deal will see him earn a staggering £34m per season, which works out to roughly £650,000-per-week.
