EPL: Klopp reveals why Liverpool won’t buy Mbappe from PSG

Jurgen Klopp addressed rumors of Liverpool's links with Kylian Mbappe, saying the club have no chance of signing the PSG player.

Real are openly courting Mbappe ahead of next season, much to the annoyance of PSG, and the Frenchman is thought to be considering a new challenge.

Speaking to the media ahead of Liverpool's high voltage Premier League encounter vs Manchester City, Klopp admitted to the fact that there can not be any footballing reason to not sign Mbappe.

Mbappe played 83 minutes of PSG's 1-0 victory over Club Brugge in midweek to help maintain their 100 per cent record in Group A of the Champions League.

"I don't see any club, that is how it is". That is how it is.

Liverpool are reportedly close to signing a blockbuster kit deal with Nike and as the 20-year-old is also sponsored by the company, Reds fans started the #Mbappé2020 movement across various social media outlets to try and convince the him to make the move to Merseyside.

"What a player he is". But it is about the money of course. No chance. Absolutely no chance, sorry for killing that story.

Kylian Mbappe is "no chance" of joining Liverpool from Paris Saint-Germain, manager Jurgen Klopp said.

The 44-year-old man was last seen snorkelling off the French island of Reunion, near Madagascar on Saturday. Shark attacks are common in Reunion and since 2011 there have been 27 with 11 proving fatal.

Liverpool hold a six-point guide at the leading in advance of the clash versus Metropolis at Anfield.

"I don't think we struggle with convincing players", he said.

"When you talk to a player, you can feel it, this year, last year, even three years ago, you can see it in the eyes of a player; I'm not sure if honor is the right word, but it's good". That was the situation. Not at all. They are at a wonderful age with still space for improvement.

Klopp, though, said it is easier than when he first arrived in 2015 to attract top level players to Liverpool.

Final 12 months they secured Brazil goalkeeper Alisson and Dutch centre-back Virgil van Dijk for 65 million kilos and 75 million kilos respectively from AS Roma and Southampton.

"I don't think we have to compare with Man City", said Klopp.

"To see a player far better, or with potential to be greater or engage in the similar is hard".

'We wanted to do something and we could have done a lot, but we only wanted to do the right thing.
