Jurgen Klopp Discusses Liverpool's Chances Of Signing Kylian Mbappe

Eden Hazard has scored only one goal for Real Madrid this season but played well against Real Betis on Saturday

Former Monaco vice president Vadim Vasilyev said earlier this week that he believes Mbappe will move to the Bernabeu eventually, while PSG sporting director Leonardo responded angrily after Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane spoke about the France international's childhood dream to play for the Spanish giants.

Reports in Spain suggested the 20-year-old could be a possible replacement for Mohamed Salah at Anfield, with Real Madrid eyeing the Egypt winger.

"Buying this calibre of player is hard", Klopp was cited in Saturday's The Times as saying. And we are involved in the clubs that can not do it.

"OK, from a sporting point of view, there are not a lot of reasons to not sign him". What a player he is, but it is about the money of course. "No chance. Absolutely no chance, sorry for killing that story", Klopp was quoted as saying by Goal.com.

Klopp has transformed Liverpool since his arrival in 2015 and they have reached consecutive Champions League Finals.

They are the defending European champions and can extend their gap at the top of the Premier League table to nine points by beating Manchester City on Sunday afternoon.

Adrian was the only senior signing this summer. He is world champion and even the best player in the world. That was the situation.

"This team is at a wonderful age, there is still space for improvement, completely fine".

A year ago they secured Brazil goalkeeper Alisson and Dutch centre-back Virgil van Dijk for £65 million and £75 million respectively from AS Roma and Southampton. I think he should definitely have a place in the French national team.

"All I said was something that Kylian Mbappe had already said himself - that it was his dream to one day wear Real Madrid's white jersey", Zidane said during Friday's press conference to preview Real's La Liga game away to Eibar on Saturday.

"There are reasons, good reasons why players want to join us, that is clear".

"That is the reason we kept this squad because it is really good and if you wanted to improve it you have to go for the right players, not just some players to fix whatever".
