Kylian Mbappe has spoken to Jurgen Klopp on at least one occasion and a transfer to Liverpool isn't beyond the realms of possibility.
That's according to former Reds defender Jamie Carragher, who reckons Mbappe could treat Liverpool as a feeder club before moving to Real Madrid.
"I'm not joking," said Carragher, when asked about Liverpool's chances of signing Mbappe.
"It was based on the fact that Liverpool thought they had a decent chance of getting Mbappe when he was at Monaco. I know Jurgen Klopp had spoken to him then and I'm sure other clubs had at that time.
"When Liverpool were in the Champions League final and won the Champions League a couple of years ago, I think anyone watching Liverpool there with Jurgen Klopp and the support of Anfield, if you're ever gonna go to a club in England before you go to Real Madrid.
"Because I think he will, guaranteed, play for Real Madrid at some stage in his career but I'd always feel that maybe Liverpool is that perfect destination for a player like that before you make that next step."
Mbappe has previously spoken out about Klopp, and had some very promising things to say about the German.
Last year Mbappe said: "This season, Liverpool have been a machine in the Premier League. They have made winning look easy but the truth is that it is never easy.
"Performances like they have been having don't just happen. To be as ruthless as they have been would come from lots of hard work in training and from having a very good manager."
Klopp registered an interest in Mbappe back in May 2020, with the Liverpool boss speaking to the Frenchman's dad Wilfried.
Mbappe was said to have been "flattered" that Klopp showed an interest in signing him.
But Real Madrid is an equally attractive proposition for Mbappe, who at the time also admitted it would be a "dream" of his to play for the Spanish giants.
