Liverpool will not be signing Kylian Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain, according to reports.

The France star has been linked with big-money moves to the Reds and Real Madrid in recent months.

Kylian Mbappe is widely rated as one of the best forwards in world football

Mbappe has scored 69 goals since joining PSG in 2017, initially on loan from Monaco with the deal made permanent a year later for £162million.

Spanish outlet ElDesmarque claim Liverpool have ruled out a move for the 20-year-old, paving the way for Real Madrid to bring him to Spain.

Earlier this month, Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp insisted there was ‘absolutely no chance’ Mbappe would become a Reds player.

He said: “Buying this calibre of player is difficult. I don’t see any club at the moment who can buy Kylian Mbappe from PSG.

“I don’t see any club, that is how it is – and we are involved in the clubs that cannot do it. It is as easy as that.

“Okay, from a sporting point of view, there are not a lot of reasons to not sign him. What a player he is.

“But it is about the money of course. No chance. Absolutely no chance. Sorry for killing that story.”

Liverpool have reportedly joined the race to sign Jadon Sancho, another winger who is being tracked by Europe’s top clubs, including Manchester United and Barcelona.

The Borussia Dortmund ace notched 12 goals and 14 assists in the Bundesliga last season, but has appeared unsettled in Germany this term.


Sancho was dropped from the matchday squad against Borussia Monchengladbach for arriving back late from international duty last month.

He was then substituted after 36 minutes during Dortmund’s 4-0 defeat to Bayern Munich last weekend.

Explaining his decision to take Sancho off, Dortmund boss Lucien Favre said: “He was not injured, he trained yesterday. I had to go on what I was seeing and, to be honest, it was not good enough.”
