Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe is reportedly flattered by recent comments made by Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp.

Kylian Mbappe is reportedly very flattered by growing interest from Liverpool, but the Paris Saint-Germain striker does not plan on joining Jurgen Klopp's side.

The France international remains one of the hottest properties in world football after scoring 116 goals in 164 games for Monaco and PSG.

Liverpool boss Klopp has made no secret of his admiration for Mbappe, whom he has identified as the player with the "brightest future" in world football.

Klopp is rumoured to have already made contact with Mbappe and the player's representatives over a big-money transfer, and Le 10 Sport claims that the 21-year-old is flattered by the recent public remarks.

However, the same report indicates that Mbappe will only consider leaving PSG for a move to Real Madrid, where he will get the chance to work under French great Zinedine Zidane.

Madrid are also keen to snap up the former Monaco ace, but they may have to wait until next year before making an approach.
