"I said he [Mbappe] congratulated me for coming to Liverpool. We talked for a while and the reporter asked me, in a casual tone, if I was going to try to bring him to Liverpool. I answered that he [Mbappe] was going to stay at PSG this year, but that maybe he would come next year if I talk to him.
"But that was a joke. I never talked about this with Mbappe."
