Representatives of Paris Saint-Germain forward Kylian Mbappe have reportedly informed Liverpool that they will not win the race for the player's signature.
Although the World Cup winner has hinted that he has already reached a decision on his future, it will not be formally revealed until after PSG's final Ligue 1 fixture of the season on May 21.
Nevertheless, according to Marca, Liverpool have been contacted to be informed that they will miss out on signing the 23-year-old.
The report claims that Mbappe has only being toying with the straight choice of remaining at PSG or making the switch to the Bernabeu, despite being flattered by Liverpool's interest.
Having contributed 25 goals and 17 assists in France's top flight this campaign, Mbappe was given the Ligue 1 Player Of The Year award on Sunday evening.
