Liverpool midfielder Fabinho scoffs at Mbappe tapping up claims

Liverpool midfielder Fabinho has dismissed claims of tapping up PSG striker Kylian Mbappe for the Reds.

Fabinho has talked up convincing former AS Monaco teammate Mbappe about a move to Liverpool.

But he told ESPN Brasil: "A reporter asked me about Mbappe.

"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."
