Kylian Mbappe, a forward for Paris Saint Germain, has reported he turned down a free transfer to Liverpool to be able to expand his contract with the Ligue one club..
Mbappe signed a three year contract extension with PSG last weekend, beating Real Madrid out there as the favourite to sign him this summer.
The 23-year-old is believed to have been provided the most lucrative contract in the club’s history and will have a substantial say in the way the club is managed behind the scenes.
Even though Real Madrid seemed to be his sole client, Mbappe has today confirmed that he also had brief discussions with Liverpool.
He told The Telegraph: “We conversed just a little bit, but not a lot. We spoke briefly.
“I spoke with Liverpool as it is my mother’s favourite club,” she said. My mom loves Liverpool. I don’t know the reason, but you should ask her..
