Liverpool have a huge advantage over Real Madrid in the race to sign Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe, according to reports.
Mbappe could be on his way out of France in the next year after reportedly telling PSG he wants to leave.
That’s sent the footballing world into a frenzy as Real Madrid, Liverpool and Manchester City and others have all been linked with a £300m move for the player.
And now Spanish publication Sport yesterday had an update on Mbappe’s situation and described the Reds boss Jurgen Klopp as a ‘rival’ to Real Madrid for his signature.
Klopp ‘dreams’ of signing Mbappe with the German boss desperate to have him ‘at his command at Liverpool’, with the report adding that he ‘maintains contact’ with the France international.
And now a report in AS (via Sport Witness) claims that Liverpool part-owner LeBron James could hold the key to Mbappe choosing the Reds over Real Madrid.

The switch was part of a Nike sponsorship deal but the newspaper also suggests that Nike’s kit sponsorship of Liverpool ‘would make it easier’ for Mbappe to move to Anfield.
The report continues by saying that Liverpool were Real Madrid’s ‘number one rival’ for Mbappe from the ‘first moment’.
