Liverpool owner John W Henry could reportedly give the green light on a move for Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe during this summer's transfer window.
The 22-year-old's future continues to be called into question, and the France international is expected to be sold in the upcoming market if he does not sign a new deal in Paris.
Real Madrid are thought to be the favourites for the World Cup winner, but Los Blancos president Florentino Perez has conceded that a move for the attacker would be impossible without the European Super League, which has broken down after the withdrawal of nine clubs.
According to The Mirror, Henry is keen to rebuild bridges with the Liverpool fans after the Super League drama and is therefore prepared to sanction a big-money move in the upcoming market.
The report claims that Madrid's financial problems could hand the Reds a major advantage when it comes to the race for the former Monaco youngster.
Mbappe, who only has a contract with PSG until next summer, has scored 125 goals and registered 60 assists in 165 appearances for his current side in all competitions.
A recent report claimed that the Frenchman had already started to search for a house in Madrid amid interest from the reigning Spanish champions.
