Liverpool has been in the Kylian Mbappé transfer rumor mill for quite some time, but it seems the saga may be reaching its climax with Mbappé reportedly making a crucial decision about his future.

Since his move to Paris Saint-Germain in 2017 for a staggering $211 million (£166m/€195m), speculation about Mbappé’s next destination has been incessant.

With his PSG contract nearing its end, he is free to engage in discussions with clubs outside of France, intensifying talks of potential moves to Liverpool or Real Madrid.

However, according to Sport Bild, Mbappé has finally set his sights on Real Madrid, citing his aspiration to win the Champions League as a pivotal factor in his decision.

The report also indicates that Liverpool may have withdrawn from the race due to financial constraints, given Mbappé’s hefty earnings at PSG, totaling around $216 million (£170m/€200m) annually including salary and bonuses.

Recent revelations about Mbappé’s plans have further fueled speculation, with Caught Offside suggesting his desire to represent France in the European Championships and the Olympics this summer could complicate matters for potential suitors.

The prospect of missing part of the pre-season and the start of the 2024/25 season due to the Olympics in Paris from July 26 to August 11 adds an unusual dimension to negotiations.

Liverpool.com suggests that while the situation differs from previous transfer sagas like Jude Bellingham’s,

where Liverpool’s interest was more transparent, the club’s alleged withdrawal from the Mbappé pursuit raises doubts about their genuine intent.

Nonetheless, Liverpool’s apparent step back may have inadvertently pressured Mbappé into choosing between Real Madrid and PSG.

While Mbappé has previously opted to stay in Paris, this summer could mark a turning point.

Real Madrid is expected to make a concerted effort to secure his signature, possibly accommodating his Olympic aspirations.

In essence, Mbappé’s decision could signal the end of a long-running transfer saga and pave the way for a new chapter in his illustrious career,

with Real Madrid appearing to be the frontrunner in his pursuit.
