The Kylian Mbappé transfer is up and running, with Real Madrid reportedly presenting the Frenchman with an offer on Monday. However, the Spanish side might be facing competition.
Inevitably, a Premier League club had to enter the race for the 25-year-old, and now all attention focuses on Liverpool. According to Le Parisien, the Reds are actively competing for the signature of the 2018 FIFA World Cup winner.
The information doesn’t reveal an offer or any other financial details. Nonetheless, it does state that the English side is a serious candidate for the winger, who can sign a pre-contract now, with his current deal expiring in June. Additionally, he’d be the long-term replacement for Mohamed Salah.

Real Madrid reportedly has a 15-day deadline on their offer, and if the La Liga side did present a proposal, then the clock starts as of Monday. The question with Los Blancos is whether they’ll stand firm with their stance.
As for PSG, the Ligue 1 side has accepted that Mbappé’s future will continue elsewhere sooner or later. However, Paris wants to keep him for as long as possible. Therefore, they wish to extend his contract for one or two more seasons.
