Kylian Mbappe

Kylian Mbappe has told Paris Saint-Germain that he wants to leave for either the Premier League or LaLiga at the end of the season, according to a report.

France star Mbappe is arguably the world’s most coveted young talent, following his stunning rise in recent seasons. Indeed, the 21-year-old is already a regular feature in the Ballon d’Or stakes.

However, he remains part of a PSG side that, while dominating Ligue 1, is yet to taste European glory. The French champions’ appearance in August’s final was their best achievement to date.

As such, The Times claims he has told club bosses of his intention to depart and move across Europe. What’s more, Manchester United and Liverpool are allegedly on his radar.

Mbappe is a strong admirer of Liverpool and boss Jurgen Klopp.

Earlier this year, he said of the Anfield side: “What Liverpool do in this moment is amazing.

“They’re like a machine, they’ve found a rhythm and are like we play again, we play again. They’ve lost zero games. When you watch you think everything is easy but that’s not easy.

“The guys are focused, they play games every three days and they win, they win, they win.

“Now the problem is that everybody watches Liverpool, and everybody watches what we can do against them, so now they have to show they are strong again but it’s a very good team with a very good manager.”

Meanwhile, previous reports have claimed Real Madrid are keen to sign Mbappe. Boss Zinedine Zidane could soon look for a successor to Karim Benzema.

Mbappe has scored 90 goals in 124 games for Paris Saint-Germain, while also assisting 51 others.

At previous club Monaco, he netted 27 times in 60 outings.


Jurgen Klopp Liverpool

Meanwhile, Klopp has insisted that his side will learn from their error-strewn performance against Leeds.

Liverpool got the job done at Anfield on Saturday, but only after the Whites scored three equalisers.

Indeed, the Reds’ defenders looked shaky throughout and despite admitting errors, the Liverpool boss insists he is not concerned.
