Kylian Mbappe in demand

It comes as no surprise that Kylian Mbappe is a man in demand.

The Frenchman has been scoring silly amounts of goals for a few years now.

This season Mbappe has netted 12 in 12 league starts and four sub appearances.

Last term he banged in 18 goals in 17 starts and three showings from the bench.

Sport recently claimed Liverpool will fight for Kylian Mbappe with Real Madrid also undeterred by the alleged £160m price tag.

PSG interest in Messi

This summer Lionel Messi’s contract at Barcelona expires.

The Argentinian is widely expected to leave the Catalan club on a free transfer.

Speaking to France Football, Leonardo hinted at PSG interest in Lionel Messi, saying:

“Great players like Messi will always be on PSG’s list. But this is of course not the time to talk about it, or to dream about it.

“But we are seated at the large table of those clubs who are following the matter closely. In fact, no, we are not yet seated, but our chair is reserved just in case. Four months in football is an eternity, especially in this period.”

Liverpool chances of signing Mbappe boosted

Should PSG sign Lionel Messi then they will surely have to move on one of their current superstars.

The legendary forward comes with a hefty price tag even on a free; his wages are justifiably huge.

Given that there has been talk of Messi and Neymar hoping to play together again, it makes sense that Mbappe would be the one moved on.

This would open the door for Liverpool to sign Mbappe.

The Reds need a forward, PSG may need to move one on – it’s all lining up perfectly.
