How Real Madrid could line up under Jurgen Klopp after Kylian Mbappe ultimatum | Football | Sport

Posted by

Kylian Mbappe’s uncertain future for Paris Saint-Germain has been a hot topic since the start of the summer transfer window. The French player’s contract expires in the summer, leaving many to speculate about where his next move will be. Liverpool showed great interest in the striker alongside Real Madrid.

But in a surprising development, El Nacional reported that Mbappe had asked Madrid to appoint Jurgen Klopp as coach if they wanted to convince him to La Liga.

Express Sport takes a look at a potential Los Blancos team should moves happen.

Goalkeeper: Courtois

Courtois has been a mainstay in the Real Madrid squad since his £35m move to the Spanish capital.

So far to win the Champions League in the famous white shirt, the Belgian is hoping to do so under the German in the event of a move.

And at just 29 years old, Courtois is set to play a regular at the Bernabeu for years to come.

Defense: Carvajal, Militao, Alaba, Mendy

Klopp’s defensive backs worked on the wings at Anfield, with much of their success owing to Trent Alexander-Arnold and Andy Robertson.

Dani Carvajal can provide experience and tactical intelligence, while Ferland Mendy offers consistency similar to Robertson’s tenacity on the left.

The athleticism of Eder Militao and David Alaba will outshine Virgil van Dijk and Joel Matip – giving Klopp an almost immediate transfer from his current squad at Liverpool.

Midfield: Fabinho, Modric, Casemiro

Fabinho has been one of the most consistent players in the Liverpool squad since his arrival in 2018.

The Brazilian will provide a calm dynamic to the defensive steel of Casemiro if he follows Klopp at the Bernabeu.

With the talent of Luka Modric, it would be hard to beat a midfield of this quality anywhere in Europe.

Attack: MBAPPE, Benzema, False

The arrival of Mbappe and Klopp will turn Real into the animal that was under the leadership of Zinedine Zidane.

And the German coach moving to the Spanish capital could finally help Los Blancos capture their long-time target Mohamed Salah, who may follow his boss.

With young player Vinicius Jr starting to play a key role at the Bernabeu, the attacking trio could thrive under the German.
