Kylian Mbappe

Kylian Mbappe’s contract expires this summer, but he won’t be moving to Anfield anytime soon.

 

What did Klopp say about Kylian Mbappe?

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp says the Reds are out of the race to sign Kylian Mbappe this summer, although he admitted the Reds are big fans of the PSG star. The future of the French player is the subject of wild speculation at the moment, his contract with Paris Saint-Germain is due to expire at the end of the season. Kylian Mbappe has been widely lobbied for a move to Real Madrid, though several reports in France suggest the Reds are among the clubs that have come into contact with the player’s representatives.

The Reds have been tracking the Frenchman’s progress since his teenage days with Monaco, and Kylian is known to be a fan of Liverpool’s style of play under Jurgen. But when asked directly about Mbappe on Monday, the Reds boss told reporters that of course they are interested in Kylian, they are not blind! According to Klopp, there is nothing to say about contact with the player, but everything is set between Mappe and Liverpool, everything is fine. They like Kylian Mbappe – if they don’t like him, then they should interrogate themselves! But no, they cannot be part of these battles. There must be other clubs, but that’s okay. Klopp says Mbappe is still a great player.

 

Klopp talks about other players

Meanwhile, Jurgen confirmed that both Salah and Van Dijk will miss the Reds’ PL trip to Southampton on Tuesday night due to injury. Both men ran into trouble during Saturday’s FA Cup victory over the Blues, but they are optimistic for a potentially season-defining home clash with the Wolves this weekend. “No,” Jurgen said when asked about the pair’s chances of playing against Southampton. According to Jurgen Klopp, Virgil van Dijk is definitely not, but it was pretty clear before the Chelsea game that it was a Southampton game. He played a lot and Saturday-Tuesday was not possible again.

Liverpool manager says they are both OK. The goal would be for both to be involved again at the weekend, properly engaged, either on the bench or at the start. It would be perfect for the game, but if not, then they take every day after. According to Jurgen, they are very positive, they have no doubts about the Champions League final, but they are quite realistic about the game of the wolves. But tomorrow, no.
