Liverpool are set for a financial duel with Real Madrid over the signature of Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe this summer.

If the Belgian winger does not impress Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane, he will be sold. SPORT have reported that if Hazard is sold that the club will use those funds to make Mbappe the next Galactico.
The report goes on to say that Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp wants to refresh the squad and sees Mbappe as the perfect play to do so.
Klopp has made his desire to bring Mbappe to Anfield known to Liverpool’s ownership group, Fenway Sports Group (FSG).
Sell to Buy
Many Liverpool supporters look to the club’s previous transfer business and suggest that a major name will be sold in order to bring Mbappe in.
With rumours of Real Madrid being interested in him, the player that is mentioned the most for a potential Anfield exit is Mohamed Salah.
However, recent reports would suggest otherwise.

Liverpool is the most talked about club in the world so it is tough to tell what is fact and what is fiction. Will summer see Mbappe join Liverpool? A possible Salah exit?
What we do know, however, is that Liverpool is in for a very busy summer window.
