Reds could move for Mbappe if Salah doesn’t renew
Paris Saint Germain superstar Kylian Mbappe has been linked with a move away from the French club at the end of the season.
The World Cup winner is nearing the end of his contract the capital club and the two parties have not been able to reach an agreement regarding a contract extension.
There have been reports that Real Madrid and Liverpool are keen on signing the Frenchman and it seems that the Reds could make their move for him if Mohamed Salah refuses to sign a contract extension with the Premier League club.
Salah has a contract with Liverpool until the summer of 2023 and the Reds are unwilling to match his wage demands so far.
The Egyptian has been a world-class player for Liverpool since joining the club and losing him would be a devastating blow for the Reds. However, signing a player like Mbappe could certainly fill the void and help the side challenge for the major trophies.
Third club in the race for Mbappe
Meanwhile, according to a report from RMCsport, a third unnamed club has apparently entered the race to sign the PSG superstar in the summer.
It will be interesting to see whether Real Madrid and Liverpool can send off the competition and secure Mbappe’s services in the coming months now.
The PSG star is likely to cost a lot of money despite the fact that he will be available on a free transfer.
A player of his stature will demand a massive signing on fee and he’s likely to command big wages as well.
It is fair to assume that the unnamed club that has joined the race to sign the Frenchman is financially capable of pulling off the transfer and Premier League giants Manchester City could be a potential option.
It will be interesting to see if Mbappe is willing to move to the Premier League this summer despite the strong links to Real Madrid.
Both Liverpool and Real Madrid could use a quality attacker next season and Mbappe could transform them completely.
