Kylian Mbappe is stuck at Paris Saint-Germain, who are ready to sell him this summer after leaving him out of their pre-season tour of Japan.
The French international is one of the best players in the world and his contract with the Ligue 1 champions will expire next year.
Surprisingly, the Reds have entered the race to hire his services.
According to The People (news image provided below), Liverpool are set to offer terms of a one year loan deal to sign Mbappe from PSG.
Such a move will allow the Parisians to earn some sort of cash for 12 months and enable the player to complete his dream move to Real Madrid in 2024.
The 24-year-old superstar has openly appreciated Liverpool over the years and his mother-agent is a huge supporter of the Anfield club.
However, there are multiple reasons we feel such a deal might not be possible.
First and foremost, the Reds will be featuring in the second-tier of European football next season.
Mbappe, who rejected a big money deal from Saudi, would surely not want to play a season without Champions League at Merseyside.
On the other hand, the World Cup 2022 Golden Boot winner earns a mammoth salary of £33.8million a year i.e. £650,000 a week.
So, Klopp’s team will have to break their pay structure, at least for a year, as at the moment, the current highest earner is Mohamed Salah, who takes home around £300,000 a week less than the Les Bleus star (The Athletic).
