Superstar Kylian Mbappe of Paris Saint-Germain has been frequently linked with a move to Liverpool and has now spoken out about a potential departure from the Parc des Princes in the near future.
After reiterating his commitment to Paris Saint-Germain, Kylian Mbappe has put an end to rumors of a transfer to Liverpool.
Since his contract at Parc des Princes expired in the summer, the French forward has been linked with a move to Anfield on numerous occasions.
Real Madrid, one of Spain’s biggest clubs, attempted to sign Mbappe but was unsuccessful after he signed a new contract with PSG.
The 23-year-old signed a hefty three-year contract in Paris, but there are still rumors that he may leave the city sooner rather than later in order to add the Champions League to his already crowded trophy case.
Despite this, Mbappe has asserted that he can achieve his goals while working for his current employers and does not need to look for employment elsewhere.
The Frenchman told Sports Illustrated: “People begin to say, you can stay here [at PSG] to succeed. You don’t need to go out. There’s no need for you to leave the country.
It sends a strong message to us because a lot has changed in people’s attitudes since I declared that I would be staying.”
Mbappe joined PSG on loan from Ligue 1 rivals Monaco in the summer of 2017.
The forward, who was born in Paris, has subsequently made 236 appearances for the team and has won four Ligue 1 championships, three French Cups, and two League Cups.
He has persisted in waxing lyrical about his current employers and clarified the specifics of his decision to reject a summer transfer to Real Madrid.
“I’m not afraid. I’m prepared. I often talk about my goals and what I want to accomplish, and the moment has come.
The book is entirely white and set in Paris. What a possibility! You must adopt a new way of thinking. Of course, traveling to Madrid was simpler. But I do have this goal.
I am French. I was born and raised in Paris, so for me to win, there is truly something special. It permanently engraves your name in the annals of your nation.”
While a transfer to Liverpool currently seems unlikely, Mbappe has admitted that he has had discussions about moving to Anfield in the past.
“We talked a little bit, but not a lot,” he said earlier this year. “We had a brief conversation. My mother loves Liverpool, so I spoke with them because they are her favorite team.
You’ll have to ask her why, as I have no idea. We first met them five years ago, and they are a good club. I met them when I was in Monaco. It is a big club.”
