Liverpool fans have been choosing favourites between Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland. Who would you rather have at Anfield?
Both Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland lit up the UEFA Champions League this week. They look like the next generation of superstars.
Tuesday saw Mbappe go to Camp Nou and bag a hattrick in an extraordinary performance. He went to Lionel Messi’s back garden and made it his own.
Haaland ‘responded’ on Wednesday, though. Borussia Dortmund – a team not in great form – beat Sevilla away from home. The Norwegian scored two and set up the other.
Both were just magnificent and both have been linked with Liverpool over the past year.

Mbappe is linked with Liverpool all the time, in fact – just yesterday, Le Parisian had the Reds as interested. You have to go back a while to find a Haaland link, though.
But Eurosport did have Liverpool down as a potential 2021 destination back in November.
But which of the two young superstars should the Reds move for? Liverpool fans had their say on Twitter.
Very tough call, but I think Haaland is made for Liverpool. With that said, I’d be more than happy to see either one in red.— Pablo (@PapaRomeo1892) February 17, 2021
Haaland.He is stronger,he is a better finisher,he is a more consistent goalscorer and he has already played in different Leagues with the same efficiency.— JAMESFF (@JAMESFF9) February 17, 2021
He could fit in any team in the world.
Oh,and he is ofcourse cheeper.
Haaland every day, everywhere a player like Mbappe goes you get followed with "WHERE NEXT" stories— Alex Jafarzadeh (@ajafarzadehPR) February 17, 2021
Haaland. Has a higher ceiling— Bojack🔴 (@shotgunloverr) February 17, 2021
At Liverpool we probably need Haaland more but want Mbappe more.— Peadar (@PeadarLyons) February 17, 2021
I still want Haaland over Mbappe at Liverpool 👍— Atharv (@Lfcatharv) February 17, 2021
What RTK has to say
It looks as though we’ve cherry-picked Haaland comments there – we really haven’t. There’s an overwhelming support for the Norewgian over Mbappe.
And that sort of shocks us. Haaland is probably more attainable but we’re playing a fantasy game here.
Mbappe is a complete superstar who has already won major honours. You’d think there would be more support for him.
Still, maybe the finances come into it. That Le Parisien article has the overall cost for Mbappe at well over £200m. Haaland won’t come close to that.
But let’s step out of fantasy land for a second – we’d all love either Mbappe or Haaland at Liverpool and we’ll probably have to settle for neither.
And now let’s step back in – we want Mbappe at Anfield. Haaland would be good, too, though. Can Liverpool afford both?
