Kylian Mbappé’s $431 Million Liverpool Transfer Drama
A dream just across the fence but not yet achieved – that has been the reality of French footballer Kylian Mbappé, who is currently with PSG but has been linked numerous times to Liverpool.
But the prospects of him going to the club at the moment appear thin as Liverpool appears to be in no position to fork over the requested transfer fee of $431m And the striker’s humongous wages.
Mbappe signed a contract extension with PSG in May that would see him stay with the club until 2025. However, there is a clause that allows for his exit as early as next year (2024). But the Frenchman, who was once the most valuable player in the world, is seeking a way out earlier – according to multiple reports.
Amid the uncertainties about a potential exit from PSG, Mbappe himself isn’t left with many options. PSG isn’t averse to his exit anytime but the club has picked Liverpool as the only option for the Frenchman, despite real Madrid having shown interest in snagging the footballer who was in excellent form during the recently concluded World Cup in Qatar.
It remains to be seen how things will turn out, with Liverpool unable to foot the humongous sum demanded for the transfer to The Reds.
