News from Spain: Jurgen Klopp confirms Liverpool will not move for Kylian Mbappe

Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has confirmed the club will not make a move for Kylian Mbappe.

The Reds were linked with a possible 11th hour swoop for the French star as he approaches the end of his Paris Saint-Germain contract next month.

However, despite the speculation, Real Madrid remain the front runners to complete a deal for the 23-year-old, with Liverpool not in the running.

Of course we are interested in Kylian Mbappe, we are not blind! as per reports from The Times.

I have nothing to say about [contact with the player], but between Kylian and Liverpool, it is all set, it is all fine.

We like him if you dont then you have to question yourself!

But no, we can not be part of these battles. There are other clubs involved, but thats fine. He is still a great player.

Klopps stance on Mbappe has removed any doubt of Real Madrid as the sole club interested in prising him away from the French capital.

Mbappe has hinted a final choice is almost complete as he opts between an extension in Paris or a new challenge in Madrid.

PSG have offered a two-year renewal at the Parc des Princes but the former AS Monaco speedster appears to have made his mind up on a switch to Madrid ahead of the 2022/23 campaign.
