Monaco striker, 26-goal scorer, and Ligue 1 winner, Kylian Mbappé is an 18-year-old in demand. Real Madrid are leading the charge for the player – and it’s probably the only team who can afford him.

Liverpool has also supposedly expressed interest in the star striker.
Some Reds fans were unimpressed by the news; it’s taken months for their club to sign Egyptian striker Mo Salah after negotiations stalled over price. Liverpool also issued an apology for the ‘misunderstanding’ with Dutch defender Virgil Van Dijk.
Liverpool don't want to pay an extra £2.50 for Salah but are willing to pay over £100 million for Mbappe yeah?
Give us a fucking break.

After the Virgil van Dijk debacle, Liverpool's owners are showing their intent by pretending to be interested in Monaco's Kylian Mbappe.

Another possibility that has been mooted is Arsenal. But Mbappé has said his ‘obsession’ with the Champion’s League is a driving force in his career. Given Arsenal didn’t qualify for the Champion’s League while Monaco reached the semi finals, it wouldn’t make sense for him to move to the Emirates. Unless he was obsessed with Arsène Wenger.
And that is highly unlikely.
