Liverpool won't sign Kylian Mbappe in summer 2024
Liverpool are looking for a long-term replacement for Mohammed Salah
According to reports, Liverpool are not interested in signing Kylian Mbappe in the upcoming summer.
He did, however, do a last-minute U-turn and sign a new contract with the French powerhouses that runs until 2024 with the option of an additional year until 2025 that he alone could exercise.
The summer brought Mbappe back into the spotlight when he was benched from PSG’s squad for not using that extension, essentially making the team susceptible to losing the world’s highest-paid player to free agency the following summer.
But Mbappe, who was later recovered at PSG and has been a star player this season, won’t be going to Anfield, sources tell Sky Sport in Germany.

This is true even though Liverpool has been connected to the 24-year-old in the past as they try to find Mohamed Salah an indefinite successor.
The rumours were “not hot,” according to Florian Plettenberg, a journalist for Sky Sport.
‘We’ve had that confirmed clearly from Liverpool. Mbappe and Klopp – that probably won’t work.’
The story goes on to say that even though his contract is set to expire in the summer of 2019, PSG is still at ease with his contractual status.
If they acquire him in 2024 or 2025, Real Madrid—who believed they were successful enough to acquire Mbappe in 2022—remains the most likely destiny for him.
After being kicked out of Luis Enrique’s team in the summer, Mbappe was made to train with a group of players known as the “undesirables”—guys PSG was seeking to cut loose—instead of joining the team on their pre-season tour of Japan and South Korea.
