Liverpool has been reminded of a blunder that could help them sign Kylian Mbappe on a free transfer.
Following a similar situation close to home, Liverpool have been reminded that they should not give up on Kylian Mbappe.
Kylian Mbappe could leave PSG for free next summer, with Real Madrid his most likely destination.
Liverpool, on the other hand, is still linked with the Frenchman and has been advised not to give up hope.
For a long time, Liverpool has been linked with a big-money transfer for Kylian Mbappe, but the star is still expected to join Real Madrid.
Despite his contract expiring at the end of this season, Madrid made an offer of £189 million for Mbappe in the summer, which would have been a world-record transfer.
After joining PSG for £150 million in 2018, Mbappe could leave for free next summer, and the Frenchman has yet to sign a new contract at the club, despite the club’s proximity to Europe’s elite.
Although Liverpool may believe their efforts will be for naught if Mbappe signs with Real Madrid, a club legend has reminded them to use their own situation as an example of how a transfer is never finalized.
Gini Wijnaldum left Liverpool this summer after it became clear that the Dutchman would not be extending his stay at Anfield, and it appeared that a move to Barcelona was a foregone conclusion.
However, he decided to join PSG at the last minute, shocking Barcelona bosses and many others, and Ian Rush has used this situation as an example of why Liverpool should not hold back in their pursuit of Mbappe.
For a long time, Rush has urged Liverpool to try to sign Mbappe, and the Anfield legend recently told Gambling.com: “Reports suggest he’s [Mbappe] destined to end up at the Bernabeu, but when a player becomes a free agent, you never know what direction they might take.”
“We all thought Gini Wijnaldum was on his way to Barcelona last summer, only to be snatched up by PSG.”
“Could Liverpool use Mbappe’s proposed move to Real Madrid to their advantage? I know he’s a Liverpool fan, and it would be fantastic if the club could sign someone like him, but Real Madrid’s interest is genuine.
“For me, if you want to play in the best league in the world and for the best team in the world, you have to play in the best league in the world and for the best team in the world.”
