Kylian Mbappe, one of the best players in the world at the age of 21. The World Cup winner has scored 30 goals in 33 games this season, after scoring 39 goals in all competitions last season.
Mbappe is widely regarded as the heir of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, the two superstars who have been hoarding football’s individual awards over the past ten years.
The Daily Express reports that Real Madrid plans to take a big step for Mbappe next summer.
The French striker has been moving to Santiago Bernabeu since his breakthrough season in Monaco
Mbappe is under contract at Parc des Prince until summer 2022, but PSG has so far failed to break through talks about a new deal.
Madrid are reported to be trying to lift Mbappe from Ligue 1 champion at the end of next season, giving Liverpool a blow.
Mbappe was associated with the Reds at various points this season, and the French international was full of praise for Jürgen Klopp’s team earlier this year.
However, Klopp himself said that Liverpool “has absolutely no chance” of landing a player who costs PSG 180 million euros.
The news that Madrid is preparing to increase its interest in the 21-year-old should come as no surprise. Klopp has never seen Mbappe as a realistic transfer destination, so he won’t lose any sleep because of Los Blancos’ ambitions to sign it.
Jadon Sancho, currently perhaps the most sought-after footballer in the world. The winger has had another great season with Borussia Dortmund. He scored 14 goals and 15 assists in the Bundesliga.
The England international is expected to return home this summer as Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City and Liverpool are linked.
The Daily Mirror writes that Sancho is expected to leave Signal Iduna Park this summer despite the break in the 2019/20 season.
The Premier League and the Bundesliga are currently on hold until April 30th at the earliest.
Although the game break could affect some of the transfers discussed this summer, Sancho is expected to still be looking for new pastures.
The report says Manchester United is “desperate” to sign the striker, but Liverpool is also considered interested.
Which club ultimately acquires Sancho has won its signature against a significant competition.
The former youth team leader from Manchester City is already one of the strongest attackers in European football. He’ll definitely get better at 20.
Sancho is too good to be a replacement. If Liverpool signs him this summer, it could mean that one of Mohamed Salah or Sadio Mane is on the way out.
Malick Thiaw, an 18-year-old central defender, is currently practicing for Schalke.
The Finnish-German defender has only one appearance in the Bundesliga, but is a highly rated perspective.
Arena Napoli reports that Liverpool went to pole this summer to sign the teenager.
Thiaw has also been linked to Napoli, PSG and Milan, but the Premier League leaders are said to have stolen a march from their rivals.
The boy has a £ 7m release clause in his contract, which means the Reds don’t have to break the bank to get him to Anfield.
Liverpool doesn’t just focus on signing players who will immediately improve the first team.
After getting Harvey Elliott and Sepp van der Berg last summer, they’re trying to get another talented teenager before the next season.
This is a positive sign for Liverpool fans who now have full confidence in their club’s recruitment policy.
Nathaniel Clyne, Liverpool’s unfavorable right-back, who has not played a game for the club this season.
The former Southampton defender was practically always present in 2016/17, but a combination of injuries, misfortune and the appearance of Trent Alexander-Arnold pushed him to the edge of the squad.
The Turkish newspaper Posta states that Besiktas is already talking to Clyne about a possible move to Istanbul.
The ex-England international will no longer be in contact on June 30, which means that he has been able to start discussions with foreign clubs since January.
Liverpool paid £ 12.5m to buy Clyne in the summer of 2015, but due to its contractual situation, they cannot get this fee back.
It has long been known that Clyne would be on the move this summer, but Turkey’s top class was probably not the goal that many people had thought of.
It’s a shame that the right-back has been forgotten in recent years and a loan spell in Bournemouth 2018/19 didn’t go as well as he hoped.
Nevertheless, after more than 100 missions for the club, Clyne will leave with the good wishes of the Liverpool fans.
Xherdan Shaqiri, who was limited to just 10 games in all competitions this season.
After 30 games in the 2018/19 season, it wouldn’t be a surprise if the Swiss international developed itchy feet.
Turkish publication Fotomac reports that Galatasaray is taking a step forward.
Liverpool is said to endure for a £ 18m fee, a slight increase over the £ 13.5m paid for the Stoke acquisition in 2018.
The two clubs are ready to open discussions, but it is likely that they will be delayed until the European football season resumes.
Shaqiri played a cameo role at times during the last season, but was only used sparingly this time.
The 28-year-old winger will have much more playing time next season, which he probably won’t get in Liverpool.
It is important that the Reds sign a replacement for Shaqiri, although this may not be easy as such a player will be forced to spend most of the season on the bench.
