Liverpool to rival Real Madrid for Kylian Mbappé signing, according to FIFA agent

FIFA agent Marco Kirdemir has told Marca that Liverpool could rival Real Madrid for the signing of Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappé (24) this summer. 

Mbappé’s future at PSG was thrown into doubt when he sent a letter to the club’s hierarchy, informing them that he won’t trigger the one-year extension in his contract. Consequently, the France captain could be available on a free next summer. Les Parisiens, unwilling to lose such a valuable asset for nothing, have therefore decided to sell Mbappé this summer, according to Foot MercatoThe club’s president, Nasser Al-Khelaifi is “very frustrated” with Mbappé’s decision not to extend, says Kirdemir. 

As reported by multiple sources, including L’Équipe, in the case of a departure this summer, Real Madrid are the Frenchman’s most likely destination. However, according to Kirdemir, the La Liga club could face competition from a Premier League side. In an interview, transcribed by RMC Sport, the FIFA agent cited Liverpool as a potential rival for Mbappé’s signature.

Liverpool are competing with Real Madrid and want to pay a fortune for Mbappé,” he said. According to Kirdemir, Mbappé could attract an offer of up to €300m, which would be a record transfer fee. 

Despite the agent’s comments, and despite a long-standing interest in Mbappé, Liverpool manager Jürgen Klopp told The Times in May that the Premier League club were out of the running for the France international.
