Kylian Mbappe goal machine

At just 22-years-old Kylian Mbappe is already one of the top strikers in the game.

He has been setting the sport alight since he was a teenager at Monaco.

Last term he netted 42 goals in all competitions for PSG.

He also bagged seven assists in Ligue 1 and three in the Champions League.

Given his young age we expect him to keep getting better and better.

Liverpool leading Kylian Mbappe contenders

This summer sees the French wonderkid enter the final year of his contract.

The youngster has allegedly refused to sign an extension at PSG.

This decision has put the Parisians in a perilous position, forcing them to choose between two equally unappealing courses of action.

Either they sell the superstar cheap this summer or they lose him for nothing in a year’s time.

The Mirror has reported that Liverpool are leading contenders to sign Kylian Mbappe when he eventually leaves the French side.

What RTK has to say

Liverpool signing Mbappe is a pipedream.

We all laugh and joke about it but in reality we can’t afford him.

It would mean freeing up a major chunk of the wage budget.

Furthermore, there are other clubs out there willing to fork out a lot more money for the talented youngster.

We may have the will but we don’t have the cash.
