Al-Khelaifi bluntly summed up the 24-year-old’s situation when unveiling Luis Enrique as their club’s new manager. “Our position is very clear,” he said. “If Kylian Mbappe wants to stay – we want him to stay – he has to sign a new contract.

“We cannot let the best player in the world go for free at the moment. That is impossible. This is a French club and, as he has said, he is not going to leave for free.”

This new development has made hearts beat faster and on Thursday Spanish journalist Edu Aguirre, from the popular show El Chiringuito, claimed that Liverpool had made a €200 million bid for Mbappé. Admittedly, such a concept seems far-fetched, but it is sure to excite Reds supporters.

With that in mind, here’s everything the best player in the world has said about Liverpool at the time of writing and possibly moving to Merseyside.

Speaking in May last year, Mbappé revealed he was thinking about moving to Liverpool before deciding to stay at PSG.

“We talked a bit, but not too much. We talked a bit,” he told the Daily Telegraph. “I spoke to Liverpool because it’s my mum’s favorite club, my mum loves Liverpool.

‘I don’t know why, you’ll have to ask her! It’s a good club and we met them five years ago. When I was in Monaco I met them. It’s a big club.”

It’s not too hard to imagine Mbappé working under Jurgen Klopp either, given the Frenchman’s vocal admiration for Liverpool’s performance and style, as well as the former Borussia Dortmund boss himself in 2020.

“What Liverpool are doing right now is great,” he told BBC Sport. “They’re like a machine, they’ve found a rhythm and say ‘we’ll play again, we’ll play again’.

“They have lost zero games. When you look, you think everything is easy, but it’s not easy. The guys are focused, they play games every three days and they win, they win, they win.”

“The problem now is everyone is looking at Liverpool and everyone is looking at what we can do against them, so now they have to show that they are strong again, but they are a very good team with a very good manager.”

While in May of the same year, during the shutdown of football due to the Covid-19 outbreak, Mbappé paid tribute to Jurgen Klopp and paid tribute to The Reds’ remarkable Premier League campaign.

“Liverpool have been a machine in the Premier League this season,” he told The Mirror. They’ve made winning look easy, but the truth is, it’s never easy.

“Performances as they are, don’t just happen. To be as ruthless as they have been would be the result of a lot of hard work in training and having a very good manager.”
