According to the Spanish press, the Anfield team is the second club after Manchester United were rejected by AS Monaco in the Kylian Mbappé deal.
Marca reported today (19/05) quoted sources from France as saying that Liverpool had been rejected by the AS Monaco board when offered to recruit Kylian Mbappé.
Marca says Liverpool’s offer of £ 64.4m (£ 75m) has been rejected by AS Monaco. The French club is still keeping £ 100m for the youngster. Last month it was reported that Manchester United had offered a € 85m (£ 72m) offer for Mbappé, rejected by Monaco.
With the return to the Champions League, coach Jurgen Klopp has planned to make a strong move in the transfer window this summer for Liverpool. Kylian Mbappé may be one of them. The striker’s performance is heating the news in Europe, causing Liverpool, Manchester United, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Arsenal, Bayern Munich and the latest.
In another incident, when interviewed after the Ligue 1 championship last week, AS Monaco vice president Vadim Vasilyiev dismissed all rumors related to Mbappe. “Our goal is to keep Mbappe alive,” said the Russian billionaire.
“We will do everything to keep Kylian Mbappe, I have not discussed with any clubs, because what players want is important.” According to the media in France, Mbappe would like to remain at AS Monaco next season, instead of moving to foreign football.
