Kylian Mbappe has reportedly made the decision to stay at PSG this summer, ending Liverpool’s slim hopes of signing the French international.

According to Le Parisien, the 24-year-old told club president Nasser Al-Khelaifi in a private meeting that he will remain with the club for the upcoming season despite PSG’s efforts to sell Mbappe.

The forward’s contract expires next summer, and the French giants are keen to recoup some sort of fee for Mbappe, a challenge that has proven impossible given the world-record finances that are needed for such a transfer to happen.

Liverpool have been one of many sides linked with Mbappe, yet as you can expect, the Reds are yet to make any sort of move for the PSG forward, with other players being targeted in the market.

Lauded by Virgil van Dijk as a ‘world-class’ player, this update seems to confirm that Mbappe will not be joining Liverpool this window, if this outcome wasn’t apparent enough already.

Indeed, Mbappe’s future could still drag out in the final weeks of the window, yet Liverpool could now finally disassociate themselves from the attacker having endured months of rumours.

Mbappe to Liverpool was always a non-starter, and this update could finally put the nail in the coffin for such a transfer rumour.

The forward was always going to start the new season other as a Real Madrid player or still a PSG man, and it appears that Mbappe will remain in France for one more year.

Whilst Liverpool would have been a dream destination for Mbappe, the timing and the finances for such a deal are all wrong, with the Reds in need of other players rather than a superstar attacker.
