Liverpool’s legend, Bruce Grobbelar has sent a note of warning to Kylian Mbappe that he would face a stiff battle to break into the Liverpool’s starting XI if he made a transfer to the Merseyside giants.
The world’s most valuable player has repeatedly been linked with a move to the Reds side led by German tactician Jurgen Klopp in recent times with his long-term future at Paris-Saint Germain uncertain.
Spanish giants Real Madrid are also rumored to have interest in signing the 2018 World Cup winner, though the coronavirus hiatus might have stamped the 21-year-old’s availability at the Parc De Princess so he’s going to stay in Paris for at least one more season.
And while Mbappe is one of the planet’s most phenomenal talents, Grobbelaar strongly believes that the former Monaco wouldn’t have it easy disrupting Klopp’s famous front three of Mohamed Salah, Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino.
“Well, if he comes to Anfield he’s going to have to prove his worth up front for sure. And that’s only if and when he comes,” Grobbelaar told Stats Perform News, cited by Goal.
“We do not know what the circumstances is. It will be up to Klopp and FSG who will reveal something probably in the new season.
“But whoever comes to Anfield, as you see with [Takumi] Minamino, he’s going to have to improve a hell of a lot more to get into the side.”
Liverpool are unlikely to move for kylian Mbappe anytime soon due to their financial incapabilities and the required finance needed to complete such a deal isn’t feasible.
Having seen his the Reds win the Premier League last week, Grobbelaar opines that any player who doesn’t want to join the Reds needs to see a physician.
“The squad is brilliant at this stage, it’s up to FSG and the Klopp advisers that are going to determine whether those players go or remain,” he said. “I, for one, think they will be going because they want first-team football.
Listen, at this moment in time every player wants to come and play for Liverpool because we’re the Premiership title holders and anybody who doesn’t must go to see the doctor very quickly, because we are the best team and we will be the best team for so many years.“
