£120m-rated Liverpool target’s funny tweet as transfer speculation continues

Monaco striker Kylian Mbappe has made a humorous response as reports continue to link him with a move away – with a trilingual tweet.

Liverpool are thought to be just one the clubs interested in the teenage forward, with Real Madrid and Arsenal also among those also linked.

However, Mbappe remains an aspirational signing for the Reds but there has been much speculation over his next move following a fantastic campaign in Ligue 1 last season report the Liverpool Echo.

But the 18-year-old has addressed the gossip by seemingly committing his future to current club Monaco.

In three different languages – English, French and Spanish, representing the nationalities of the clubs credited with a firm interest, as well as his native tongue – Mbappe tweeted: “Back to Monaco.”

Mbappe is a boyhood Real Madrid fan with Cristiano Ronaldo his idol growing up, but reports in France suggested Monaco would look to retain him by offering him a staggering new deal to stay with the Ligue 1 champions.

While Liverpool are aware a deal for Mbappe would be hard to complete at this time, Jurgen Klopp is a huge admirer of the forward, although it is anticipated he could eventually move from southern France for a world record fee (believed to be £120m).

Mbappe scored 15 league goals last season as Monaco lifted the Ligue 1 title, while his six goals in the Champions League helped his side to the semi-finals.
