Pires names club Mbappe should join instead of Real Madrid


Arsenal legend, Robert Pires has claimed Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe may join Liverpool ahead of Real Madrid.

Mbappe, earlier this year, informed the Ligue 1 giants that he will not extend his current contract.

The Frenchman has been widely expected to move to Spain and sign for Madrid.

But Pires, speaking with AS, said he would like to see Mbappe join the Reds in the Premier League

“I’m sorry Kylian, you weren’t the first to say no to Real Madrid.

“I don’t know what decision he will make, but I rejected Real because I had two other options.

“Surely if I didn’t have Arsenal and Juve I would have gone straight to Real. That’s for sure.

“I would like to see him in Liverpool. It’s a great club, family, good structure, no pressure, calm fans… And I say that MbappĂ©-Salah can be quite explosive.

“I think he is capable of rejecting Real Madrid,” he said.
