Steve McManaman names the one player he’d love Liverpool FC to sign
Liverpool FC former star Steve McManaman explains why he’d love to see Liverpool FC complete a deal to sign Kylian Mbappe from PSG
Steve McManaman would love to see Liverpool FC complete the signing of the french sensation Kylian Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain this summer.
He further described the youngster as a “real superstar” with his current contract at PSG set to expire in the summer.
The 23-year-old attacker has been in top form this season, scoring 19 goals and making 14 assists in 32 games in all competitions for the French side.
Former Reds and Real Madrid star McManaman has now admitted that he would love to see Mbappe move to Anfield, although he thinks that the reds may struggle to afford the signing of the Frenchman.
Writing in his column for horseracing.net, McManaman said: “If I could sign anybody [for Liverpool FC] I would sign Mbappe. Even though he’s going to cost too much.
“I thought he was brilliant at Monaco and then he went to Paris and has been great. Cristiano [Ronaldo] and [Lionel] Messi are coming to the end and Mbappe has been the one who has been standing up this year. He’s the real superstar.”
He continued: “Then it’d be somebody like Erling Haaland – a centre-forward who would score you a load of goals. But with this money and how much you would want, it just sets the dressing room on fire. For everyone else, you’d have to pay them.
“If you look at Liverpool’s setup at the minute, if they needed strengthening it would be with a different type of midfielder to what they have now. It would probably be one of the big hitters if they could afford it.”
Liverpool FC, who booked their spot in the Champions League quarter-finals on Tuesday night with a 2-1 aggregate win over Inter Milan, will take on Brighton away from home in the Premier League on Saturday.
