Liverpool’s interest in Kylian Mbappe is valid and something the club will try to make happen in the summer of 2021 – come the end of this season.
This is according to Spanish outlet AS, who cleverly note that the mammoth deal we approved with Nike could effectively help make the transfer dream a certainty.
Liverpool’s arrangement with our shirt sponsors implies 20% of every piece of LFC merchandise sold goes back to the club.
Mbappe’s appearance would take global merchandise through the roof – possibly like no other potential signing bar Lionel Messi.
If Liverpool sold one million Mbappe shirts, at about £75 a go, that would liken to £15m – which would hopefully cover his wages for a year!
It’s not something that could be considered imminent, and our pressing concern right now is to win the Premier League title with what we have – but a summer chasing the world’s next best player could be a mighty thrilling one!
Mbappe’s deal ends in 2022, so PSG knows they have to cash in this summer coming.
