This would be quite some tactic. Also, given just how brilliant Mbappe is, I doubt any of them would complain much should he join Liverpool and immediately become by far the highest earner.Totally agree. But there may be method in the madness this summer. Get all the important players tied up to new fixed contracts up to retirement age (Salah, VvD, Alisson, Mane, Hendo) then splurge on Mbappe as it's too late for the other main players to complain. Just before the window slams shut.
A man can dream.
It's never happening though, I reckon he's off to Madrid on a free next season. The Klopp cycle is coming to an end and our most important players are nearing the end of their prime within this and 2-3 years, who knows who we bring in to succeed Klopp and how our team will look like after that. At Madrid you just know that you're challenging every season especially with Barca in such a comical state right now, at Liverpool it could be right back to top four contention if Klopp leaves and our best players are getting old. That seems very doom and gloom right now but it's a realistic possibility, so it's a no brainer for Mbappe imo (especially considering he's a Madrid fan / Ronaldo fanboy since he was young).
