Kylian Mbappe revealed he had discussions with Liverpool while he was weighing up his options, before ultimately deciding to re-sign with Paris Saint-Germain.

Mbappe, 23, is widely considered the most valuable player in world football, and was tipped to leave France to join Real Madrid when his contract expired at the end of this season.

He ended up turning his back on his favourite childhood club in favour of remaining in his home country, signing a deal that will keep him in Paris through 2025.

While most believed it was a true two-horse race between the Spanish and French giants, Mbappe revealed in an interview with TeleFoot that he entertained the idea of heading to Anfield.

“It was not just Real Madrid and PSG – I was in talks to join Jurgen Klopp at Liverpool,” he said.

In an interview with the Telegraph, he added his motivation, and that Liverpool was not part of his final deliberation.

“I talked to Liverpool because it’s the favourite club of my mum – my mum loves Liverpool,” he said. “I don’t know why, you will have to ask her.

“It’s a good club and we [first] met them five years ago. When I was in Monaco I met them. It’s a big club.

“We talked a little bit, but not too much… of course, it was between Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain in the end.”
