Liverpool have been dealt a potential blow in their attempts to sign Kylian Mbappe, with the Frenchman claiming he could stay put at Paris Saint-Germain.
The 22-year-old’s future is up in the air, with his current PSG deal expiring at the end of next season.
We are talking with the club, I am also reflecting on it. If I sign it will be to invest myself long term here. I feel good here. I will soon have to make a decision. If I extend, it’s so that I stay.

Mbappe is widely considered one of the world’s best players currently, with his age meaning he could be at the top for around a decade.
He has already scored 106 goals in just 147 appearances for PSG, as well as 16 in 39 games for France.
If Liverpool can’t get Mbappe, it will be interesting to see if they turn their attention to Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland instead – arguably the other most exciting young player on the planet at the moment.
The Reds have been linked with a sensational move for the Norwegian, so it may be one to keep an eye on.
