Daniel Sturridge bumped into Kylian Mbappe in a hotel lobby and said that the Frenchman used to do the “Studge dance” when he celebrated scoring a goal.
Liverpool fans are among the best in the world when it comes to spurring their side onto incredible comebacks but they also tend to be quite unrealistic in their ambitions.
Since Kylian Mbappe was filmed hanging out with Lebron James in the United States, Reds have been obsessed with the thought that he might one day join them.
Now, after the French forward bumped into Sturridge in a hotel lobby, fans have once again exploded with excitement on social media and have urged the former Anfield striker to “get Mbappe to Liverpool.”
While a deal for Mbappe would likely exceed the £200m that PSG paid to sign Neymar, Liverpool fans could care less about the rationale behind what would be the most extraordinary transfer in football history.
Here is how the Anfield faithful have reacted online.

Real talk though, Mbappe has practically done a full LFC tour.
– He got a hug, note & talk off Klopp
– Hung out with part owner LeBron James
– Hung out with former player Sturridge
– Admits to playing with us on video games & admiring our stature in Europe

Liverpool would almost literally need to break the bank to sign Mbappe and while he would guarantee success for several years to come, it’s highly unlikely that a deal for the 20-year-old will ever materialise.
Him joining the Reds would utterly demolish the wage structure given that he earns an estimated £356,000 per week.
That’s not going to stop Liverpool fans from dreaming though, is it?
