#Mbappe2020 has been trending on Twitter on numerous occasions in the past few months.
It’s caused by Liverpool fans jokingly suggesting they will be signing the Paris Saint-Germain superstar in the summer after landing a lucrative new Nike kit deal.
There are not many players that would improve this current Liverpool side but Mbappe is certainly one of them.
On the face of it, Liverpool signing Mbappe seems incredibly unlikely.
But there’s a belief that the Frenchman would indeed be interested in a move to the European, world and potential Premier League champions.

"It’s pretty simple," French football expert Julien Laurens told ESPN FC.
"If Liverpool can pay the €300m or maybe €350m with the bonuses, and put that on the table – which is what PSG will ask anyone to sign Mbappe.
"If Liverpool can afford that, plus give him the wages that he wants, he will consider that offer every single day of the week, because, yes Real Madrid is his dream and one day there is a certainty that he will play at the Bernabeu for Real Madrid.
"But he's only 21 years of age so there is plenty time for him to go and play in Madrid one day.
"The fact is that he also would like to play in the Premier League one day, too - and Liverpool is a very attractive proposition for any top player in the world right now with what they are putting together and the project of Jurgen Klopp.”
Earlier this week, Mbappe was full of praise for Jurgen Klopp's side.
"What Liverpool do in this moment is amazing," Mbappe told BBC. "They're like a machine, they've found a rhythm and are like 'we play again, we play again'.
"They've lost zero games. When you watch you think everything's easy but that's not easy. The guys are focused, they play games every three days and they win, they win, they win.
"Now the problem is that everybody watches Liverpool, and everybody watches what we can do against them, so now they have to show they are strong again but it's a very good team with a very good manager."
So, is #Mbappe202 really on the cards?
Mbappe seems keen but will Liverpool really break the bank - and their wage structure - to land the 21-year-old?
It seems outlandish and you'd imagine it would require Liverpool selling either Sadio Mane or Mohamed Salah to fund it.
But after failing to sign a high-profile player last summer and the possibility of Nike wanting a marquee signing to honour their new kit deal, there’s a chance Liverpool will shock everyone with a huge new arrival next summer.News Now - Sport News
