PSG striker Kylian Mbappe has stated that he is now ready to make a move to Liverpool, according to French football guru Julien Laurens.
But the twist is the he is ready to move only at 253 million euros. And that’s a staggering amount for Liverpool to shell out.
According to ESPN, Laurents stated: “It’s pretty simple. If Liverpool can pay the £253m, or £295m with bonuses, and put that on the table – which is what PSG will ask anyone to sign Mbappe.
“If Liverpool can afford that, plus give him the wages that he wants, he will consider that offer every day of the week.
“Yes, Real Madrid is his dream and one day there is a certainty that he will play at the Bernabeu.
“But he’s only 21 so there’s plenty of time for him to go and play in Madrid one day.
“The fact is that he also would like to play in the Premier League one day too.
“Liverpool is a very attractive proposition for any top player in the world right now with what they are putting together and the project of Jurgen Klopp.
“But again, if they can’t put that money down on the table for an offer, there’s no way he could go there.”
Kylian is definitely into Liverpool now, having expressed his interest in the Club World Cup Champions just a week back.
“What Liverpool do in this moment is amazing,” Mbappe said. “They are like a machine, they have found a rhythm and are like ‘we play again, we play again.’
“They have lost zero games. When you watch you think everything is easy but that is not easy. The guys are focused — they play games every three days and they win, win, win.”
