Liverpool continue to be linked with Mbappe, whether it be through his previous glowing praise of the club and manager Jurgen Klopp, his relationship with Nike and Reds shareholder and basketball icon LeBron James or chats with John W. Henry on his private jet.

Kylian Mbappe is a generational talent, of that there is no doubt.

While he and Erling Haaland continue to light up European football and look set to do so for some years to come, they have become the names at the top of the wishlists of the biggest clubs on the continent when it comes to transfer targets.

Any designs Liverpool may have on Mbappe, however stretched they may be, are pretty much predicated on the Reds overcoming their slump and securing Champions League football when it comes to what the are able to do this summer.

Even at £200m this summer, the notion of Liverpool owners Fenway Sports Group parting with that kind of cash seems fanciful in the extreme, especially given their noted prudence when it comes to spending money in the transfer market, something which was once again demonstrated during the January transfer window.

Maybe Mbappe is conscious of the fact that in order to truly be seen as a superstar that has lasting appeal that he cannot spend his career in French football.

Olympique Marseille chief executive Jacques-Henri Eyraud told the Financial Times' Business of Football Summit last week that the French transfer market has shrunk by almost half and that clubs are unable to command the fees that they once could when selling on their talent.
