Real Madrid fear Liverpool competition for PSG star Kylian Mbappe

Liverpool are ready to step up their interest in PSG star Kylian Mbappe.

With less than 18 months on his current contract, Mbappe is set to be sold by PSG this summer if they cannot reach terms over a new deal.

While Real Madrid are regarded as favourites for his signature, AS are reporting there is major concern that Liverpool are ready to intensify their pursuit.

Key to the deal is the future of Mohamed Salah, with the Egypt striker unsettled at Anfield. If he should push to leave this summer, Liverpool will seek to replace him with Mbappe, using the cash raised to help fund the move.

And in Spain, it's now accepted Liverpool will be Real Madrid's greatest threat to signing Mbappe later this year.
