The transfer rumor mill is in full swing as Kylian Mbappe has informed PSG that he won’t be triggering a one-year extension on his contract, leaving just 12 months remaining on his deal. With no intention of letting him leave on a free in 2024, PSG have reportedly put him up for sale, and two clubs are said to be in the running for his signature: Real Madrid and Liverpool.

Real Madrid has always been seen as the most likely destination for Mbappe. They made an offer of around £146m to sign him a year ago, and with just one year left on his deal, he would likely be cheaper than that. However, Liverpool has also emerged as a “big candidate” to sign the Frenchman if PSG follow through on their promise of putting him up for sale.


It’s hard to fathom how Liverpool, a Europa League side, could afford the wages and transfer fee that would be required to sign Mbappe. They walked away from an expensive deal to sign Jude Bellingham this summer, citing financial constraints. If they thought Bellingham was expensive, then they would surely balk at the cost of Mbappe.

Moreover, there are potential football reasons why Liverpool may not be the best fit for Mbappe. While he would undoubtedly be the best forward at the club, Liverpool already have top-class options in the left-sided position he tends to covet. Signing Mbappe this summer was never in the Reds’ transfer plans, and bringing him in would only lead to Klopp having to try and shoehorn him into the team.


That being said, there are players you make exceptions for, and Mbappe is probably one of them. His mother is famously a Liverpool fan, and there’s too much smoke in this rumor without there being some kind of fire. However, it’s hard to see how Liverpool could make a move for Mbappe without breaking their wage structure and risking financial instability.

In conclusion, while Liverpool may be one of the sides ready to sign Mbappe if he leaves PSG this summer, the likelihood of it happening seems slim. The financial and football reasons for why Liverpool may not be the best fit for Mbappe are too significant to overlook, and it’s hard to see how they could afford him without jeopardizing their long-term stability.
