This news will certainly come as a surprise to many Liverpool fans as Mbappe has been courted by the likes of Real Madrid and PSG who can pay far more than Liverpool can and also at the moment are far bigger brand than the Reds. But Klopp certainly has the pulling power especially for younger players. Liverpool will certainly have to smash their transfer record but signing Mbappe will have a massive impact on the club.
Even for Mbappe, Liverpool might not be a bad options as he is assured to have a starting place and also Klopp’s attacking philosophy suits him perfectly. A few years in the Premier League will help him immensely in his development and later he can move onto the likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona.
