Mbappe’s current contract at PSG expires in 2022 and there has been speculation that the 21-year-old is dragging his feet over a new deal with the Ligue One side.
Even so, manager Jurgen Klopp has dismissed any speculation regarding the Frenchman, indicating that Liverpool would not be able to afford him.
Whether that is, in fact, true, we shall have to wait and see, but supporters should not be holding their breath waiting for Mbappe to sign for the Reds next summer, even after the new deal with Nike.
