PSG want to sell the World Cup winner this summer (Picture: Getty) Liverpool have opened talks with Paris Saint-Germain over a sensational loan move for Kylian Mbappe. This week, the France international turned down a record-breaking offer from Al-Hilal, who were prepared to offer him an incredible one-season deal worth €700million. PSG had accepted a world record £259m offer from the Saudi side but Mbappe turned their deal down with his representatives reportedly refusing to even meet with Al-Hilal officials in Paris. The decision is said to have infuriated PSG, who want to sell the World Cup winner after his refusal to extend his contract beyond next summer. Mbappe can leave on a free transfer at the end of next season with the French champions desperate to avoid that situation. According to The Mirror, Liverpool have now stepped in to offer the forward a one-year loan deal. Real Madrid have long planned to bring Mbappe to the Bernabeu and looked set to sign him last summer only for a last-minute U-turn. A loan move to Merseyside could benefit all parties and allow Mbappe to complete his dream move to Madrid on a free transfer after a season under Jurgen Klopp at Anfield.

Recent reports in Spain claim PSG have informed Real they would have to pay around €250m (£214m) to sign Mbappe this summer, with Los Blancos trying to negotiate a lower fee. PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi has already confirmed plans to sell Mbappe this summer if he does not agree a new deal with the forward left out of the club’s pre-season tour of Japan.
