Liverpool head coach Jurgen Klopp has hinted he could move for Kylian Mbappe or Jadon Sancho in the future but insists he “doesn’t dream about other players.”
Mbappe is under contract with Paris Saint-Germain until 2022 but the Frenchman has been tentatively linked with leaving the Ligue 1 outfit.
Real Madrid and Liverpool have been touted as the most likely destination for the 21-year-old.
Meanwhile, Sancho is expected to leave Borussia Dortmund this summer with a host of Premier League clubs keeping tabs on his situation.
And Klopp admitted: “If we can get one of them in the future, we will see.”
The Liverpool boss was asked which players in the world he would like to coach because the duo have been linked with a move to Anfield.
“Look I cannot answer those kinds of questions without creating headlines the next day, I know that’s what I don’t want to do,” Klopp told beIN Sports.
“I love them all and there’s a few more players out there.
“They are all exceptional players. The players they are now because of their own attitude, because of their skills and all that stuff and I love watching them but I have no problem that I never trained one of them.”
Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Sergio Aguero were the names thrown at Klopp when discussing the best players in the world.

“Where is Neymar on that list?” the German responded.
“Where is [Robert] Lewandowski on that list? There are so many good players out there, and they are all really good. I had Lewandowski.
“Mbappe has the biggest future. We can speak about Jadon Sancho as well, so they’re all coming up.”
Klopp was keen to stress that his current crop at Liverpool have the ability to challenge the elite group over the coming years.But he left the door open for the possibility of swooping for a superstar in the future.
He added: “Sadio Mane is young enough and Mo Salah is young enough to be in that group for the next few years.
“I am completely happy with the boys that I have, but I never thought about the others.
“When I am at a club then I work with the players I have, I don’t dream about other players.
“If we can get one of them in the future, we will see, but we will make the best of the situation we have.”
