- Kylian Mbappe scored a 94th-minute winner as PSG beat Real Madrid
- Pre-match talk was dominated by Mbappe’s future amid links to LaLiga giants

- Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp is reportedly trying to convince Mbappe to join
Kylian Mbappe is open to joining Liverpool but has also not ruled out staying at PSG, according to reports in Spain.
The 23-year-old scored a 94th-minute winner for the French giants against Real Madrid in the first leg of their last-16 Champions League clash at the Parc des Princes on Tuesday.
But talk before the game was dominated by the France international’s future, who has been heavily linked with a free transfer to LaLiga giants Real once his deal in France expires in the summer.

However, Catalan outlet Sport claim Mbappe has had a ‘radical’ rethink after netting that dramatic late goal and is keeping his options open.
One of those choices the report claims is Liverpool, a team they claim ‘attracts Mbappe a lot’ and whose boss Jurgen Klopp is trying to convince the Frenchman them with a sporting project in which they will aim to win several Champions League crowns.
The report also claims his representatives have ‘opened the door’ to him staying with Mauricio Pochettino’s men beyond the end of the season, with the French club reportedly preparing a new offer which they claim is financially ‘almost irresistible’.
The same outlet also adds Mbappe has not agreed a contract with Madrid, and that the player was frustrated with how they played against PSG and with the level the team was showing.

However, speaking earlier this week, Mbappe insisted no decision on his future had yet been made.
Speaking in Spanish to Movistar, as per Football Espana, he said: ‘I’ve not decided my future. I play for Paris Saint-Germain, one of the best clubs in the world.
‘This game to influence my future? No – I’ve not decided, I give my best and then we will see what happens next season’.
The French striker was the subject of huge offers from Los Blancos last summer, and it is thought Madrid will not be dissuaded in their attempts to sign him again in the next transfer window.
But the report claims his representatives have not ruled out him staying at the Parc des Princes
