PSG striker, Kylian Mbappe, has chosen Liverpool over his club in an interview with ESPN.
The player has now helped ramp up the transfer speculation surrounding him by name-dropping Liverpool and giving his opinion on Reds’ manager Jurgen Klopp.
Former Liverpool star, Jamie Carragher, had on yesterday re-tweeted a bogus Sky Sports News account that falsely tweeted the Reds had agreed a fee with PSG to sign Mbappe.
And now the France international has actively name-dropped the club in an interview with ESPN.
When asked by ESPN presenter Mauricio Pedroza who he would pick to play on FIFA, if there was money on it, the France star answered: “Liverpool.”
Explaining his reason, Mbappe said it was because they (Liverpool) have just won the Champions League before admitting that Reds manager Klopp is “good.”
However, it still looks very unlikely that Jurgen Klopp’s side will sign Mbappe this summer.
PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi, recently told France Football that, “Mbappe? I’m 200 per cent sure he will still be at PSG next season.”
