Liverpool have seemingly been handed a significant boost in their rumoured pursuit of PSG superstar Kylian Mbappe.
The Reds’ apparent interest in the World Cup winner has been widely reported, but the same could be said of a potential contract extension for the striker.
Two clubs immediately stand out: Liverpool and, admittedly, Real Madrid – but there are thought to be two others.
The European giants reportedly locked horns when interest was expressed in Mbappe from both sides ‘from the very beginning‘ of the saga.
French outlet Le Parisien states PSG are keen to get a contract extension sorted out with the 22-year-old, but he is leaning toward a ‘new challenge’, with Real Madrid cited as his ‘dream’ move.
We at Empire of the Kop would love to see the superstar swap Paris for Merseyside, but all signs point to him staying put or heading to Madrid – in our opinion.
