The transfer saga of Kylian Mbappe and Real Madrid came to a standstill after the French soccer star extended his contract. The Spanish club tried to lure him for free, but PSG stood firm in their decision to keep him. He is not signing a contract extension, which means the French club won’t receive a significant fee for the superstar. However, the transfer rumors will come back to the limelight in 2024. Apart from Real Madrid, numerous English clubs potentially look to sign the center forward for free next season.

One such club is LeBron James’ Liverpool. The NBA legend has a minority stake in the club along with the Fenway Sports Group. Taking him on board would mean a potential showdown between Mbappe and Erling Haaland in the next season. Notably, the Frenchmen offered some respite for PSG by helping the team to save money, which they had to offer.

According to L’Equipe, Mbappe has emerged as a target for Liverpool in the upcoming season. The English club rejected offers for Mohamed Salah from Saudi Arabia clubs. With the Saudi Pro League clubs signing various world-class players, the clubs would be back for Salah soon. Therefore, replacing the marquee attacker remains a priority for the club. With Mbappe’s devastating pace and finishing ability, he could turn the fortunes for the six-time UEFA Champions League winners. 

Moreover, Mbappe is an admirer of Liverpool’s boss, Jurgen Klopp, who closely monitored him during his Monaco days. Although Real Madrid are the perennial contenders for his signature, one cannot push Liverpool away. The club enjoys a rich history, and signing him would be a tremendous wake-up call for the rest of the clubs. Meanwhile, LeBron James would look to lure the Frenchmen to the Merseyside following his minority stake.

On top of that, they had to pay a loyalty bonus of $107.7 million to the World Cup winner. However, reports surfaced that Mbappe declined the offer and aided the club in avoiding a financial turmoil.
