Kylian Mbappe is a fan of Liverpool and his admiration of Jurgen Klopp was bared in his latest statement that highlighted the Premier League club's winning ways. The French superstar is rumored as a transfer target by the German boss and heaping praises on the team only fired up the talks that the two could work someday.
Mbappe characterized the Reds as a machine that "made winning look easy." Liverpool is at the top of the Premier League table and tipped to win the crown with a 25-point lead over the nearest rival, Manchester City.
If Klopp can steer the side to two more wins when the English football season resumes, Liverpool will be awarded the title, and the first for the club in 30 years.
It would seem that Mbappe is in awe of how the Reds proved to be a juggernaut, per the report from Mirror. According to the World Cup winner: "Performances, like they have been having, don't just happen."
"To be as ruthless as they have been would come from lots of hard work in training and from having a very good manager," said the Paris Saint-Germain striker.
Mbappe voicing out his feelings about Liverpool came at a time that he is thought to leave France soon with England as one of his expected destinations. Klopp did try in 2017 to recruit the then Monaco star but the Frenchman opted to bring to his game to Parc des Princes.
The interest, however, on Klopp's did not die down and the German even admitted that he has clustered the PSG ace to the so-called marquee signings. Mbappe, in his eyes, is a talent that any football manager would want work when given the opportunity.
At the same time though, Klopp made clear that he is not actively shooting at other players as his roster includes Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah, who are young enough to continue with Liverpool winning campaigns.
Still, he admitted: "From a sporting point of view, there are not a lot of reasons not to sign him."
However, securing Mbappe is not easy. The striker will require big money and Liverpool will need to outbid giant rivals, like Real Madrid.
The Spanish giants are in hot pursuit of the Frenchman, and according to Team Talk, the spirited efforts by Real boss Zinedine Zidane to lure Mbappe out of Paris has been viewed by PSG as destabilizing.
PSG sporting director Leonardo reminded Zidane and other suitors that the young striker is tied up with the club for more than two years and the unending offers have become bothersome. But the executive conceded that the attempts are somewhat understandable because Zidane and other managers are trying to win the attention of "one of the best in the world.
