1; If he leaves PSG it's because of sporting reasons so how much PSG are willing to pay is immaterial. A bit like the answer to why every top player isn't playing in China or middle East where the best money is. Money matters but so does money from sponsorship and such that relies on recognition.It won't happen, because of a few simple points:
Sorry for destroying your sweet dream, mate... ;-)
- we can't compete with PSG when it comes to wages
- even if that was the case, Klopp, being the prudent Schwarzwälder he is, wouldn't want to break up the current wage structure at the club. That means that Mbappe, if he wanted to come to LFC, would need to accept a cut in his wages. Can you see this happening?
- LFC have never been the club to make this kind of mega-transfer, and I'd be stunned if we suddenly started to do this kind of things. That's clearly Real Madrid territory, and that's where he'll eventually end up, especially if Zidane stays over there for the next years.
2; Matip is an example where, as a free signing, we would have had to pay him outside of our pay structure. But we paid him "wages" within our pay structure and a signing bonus spread over the length of his contract. No reason why that can't happen. Other possible solution is PSG pay Mbappe x and sponsors pay Mbappe y. If we pay less as x but what sponsors pay as y dramatically increases due to the move Mbappe may be on the same or more but playing for a better side (seemingly his opinion) and in a better, more competitive league.
3; Klopp went and smashed the record for the defender that best fit our needs. Klopp then went and (briefly) smashed the record for the keeper that best fit our needs. So he could do it.
Don't dare kill my dream haha.
