Jurgen Klopp has played down the suggestion that Liverpool FC could sign Kylian Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain.

The France international has been linked with a sensational move to Premier League leaders Liverpool FC over the past couple of weeks.

Mbappe moved to Paris Saint-Germain in a £165m deal in 2017 after the French forward impressed at AS Monaco.

However, the 20-year-old’s future at PSG has been the source of speculation over the past season or so.

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane is thought to be keen to bring Mbappe to the La Liga giants.

Liverpool FC boss Klopp rubbished the suggestion that the Reds would be able to sign Mbappe.

“Buying this calibre of player is difficult,” Klopp is quoted as saying by Metro.

“I don’t see any club at the moment who can buy Kylian Mbappe from PSG.

“I don’t see any club, that is how it is. And we are involved in the clubs that cannot do it. It is as easy as that.

“OK, from a sporting point of view, there are not a lot of reasons to not sign him. What a player he is. But it is about the money, of course.

“No chance. Absolutely no chance. Sorry for killing that story.”

Mbappe burst onto the scene as a talented teenager at Monaco in the 2016-17 season.

The France striker scored 26 goals in 44 games in all competitions during his first full season as a starter in the AS Monaco team.

Mbappe completed his move to PSG and the 20-year-old has established himself as a key player for the Ligue 1 champions.

The World Cup winner has netted 69 times in 97 games in all competitions over the past three season at PSG.

Mbappe was part of the France team that won the World Cup crown in 2018 after a 4-2 victory over Croatia.
