Paris Saint-Germain star Kylian Mbappe has confirmed that Real Madrid were not the only club he held talks with over a free transfer, also speaking to Premier League giants Liverpool about a move.

While Real Madrid may have seemed like the only rival for his signature, Mbappe has now revealed that he held brief talks with Liverpool too - though their best chance to sign him had been five years earlier.

Mbappe left Monaco for PSG in 2017, initially signing on loan before completing a £150million move a year later, though Liverpool had been unable to compete with the Parisians' financial might - which is similar to what happened this time around too.

Klopp was actually asked if Liverpool had ever considered making a move for Mbappe - who had been free to hold talks with foreign clubs as he was in the final six months of his contract - and was glowing in his praise of the Frenchman, though suggested the financial terms being discussed were beyond the club's means.

PSG's hierarchy are set to shape the club around Mbappe's wishes, with the striker keen to see more young French players in the squad; sporting director Leonardo has already been axed and Mbappe wants Luis Campos - who signed him at Monaco - to take over the role.
