Kylian Mbappe meeting with FSG by private jet amid new Liverpool transfer talks – Blessing Sports News
Kylian Mbappe has been linked with a move to Liverpool once again, six years after the superstar striker joined the Reds’ owners on a private jet in transfer talks.
Liverpool owner John W Henry previously held transfer talks with Kylian Mbappe on a private jet with the French superstar – who has once again been linked with a move to Anfield.
Mbappe signed a new three-year contract at the Parc des Princes last year – ending persistent speculation that he would join Real Madrid. It is now claimed that PSG are prepared to listen to offers for the displeased striker in the aftermath, but only if it is the Reds.
The striker is reportedly looking to leave PSG this year after the striker’s future was once again the center of attention in October. Mbappe then refused to give his future to the French champions – adding fuel to the fire that he could make a stunning exit this year.
Mbappe is entering his sixth season at the Parc des Princes after joining from Monaco in 2017. Liverpool had tried to hijack a deal that year after Mbappe, then a teenage sensation spearheaded the Ligue 1 club’s run to the last four of the Champions League.
L’Equipe claim that at this time, the striker was holding a two-hour meeting with Reds owner Henry on his private jet. They report that Henry attempted to win over Mbappe and his family in the early months of 2017 by flying his private jet to Monaco and inviting them to join him. They are said to have flown over the Nice bay and surroundings for two hours as they discussed their future before the Reds finally fell behind.
Liverpool have been linked with a bold move for the Frenchman in the years since. Boss Jurgen Klopp is a huge admirer of Mbappe, who has emerged as a superstar and is arguably the most talented player in the world.
Speaking before Liverpool faced PSG in 2018, Klopp told RMC Sport: “I love him, to be honest. He’s an extraordinary player and also a good lad, so he’s a very good lad. What a player, what a player.
“Everyone knows him since he was 16, 17 years old when he impressed in the Monaco youth team, and I saw his video when he was 17 years old and he destroys the defensive line like he is doing now.
“He was at an incredible level of consistency at that age. He is an amazing player, that’s clear, but he can deliver, give and deliver, which shows he is a very well educated kid and he knows what he is doing. “
As speculation mounts around Mbappe in early 2021, Reds legend Jamie Carragher admits he believed at the time Liverpool had a realistic chance of pulling off a blockbuster signing.
“I’m not kidding,” Carragher told CBS Sports when asked why he felt the Reds had a realistic chance of signing Mbappe.
“That’s based on the fact that Liverpool thought they had a decent chance of getting Mbappe when he was at Monaco. I know Jurgen Klopp spoke to him then and I’m sure other clubs did then too.
“When Liverpool were in the Champions League final and won the Champions League a few years ago, I think anyone watched Liverpool there with Jurgen Klopp and the support from Anfield, if you’re going to go to a club in England before you go to Real Madrid…
“Because I think he will, guaranteed, play for Real Madrid at some stage in his career, but I’ve always felt that maybe Liverpool is the perfect destination for a player like that before you take the next step.”
