Barcelona joins Real Madrid in race to sign world cup winning star.

Kylian Mbappe is now being chased by two of the biggest club in Spain as Barcelona join Real Madrid for the signature of the Paris Saint-Germain striker.

La Blaugrana President Florentino Perez has confirmed the club are also interested in signing the World Cup winner. However, Los Blancos have been linked to the 20-year-old in the past months and are highly favoured to land Mbappe due to the influence of manager Zinedine Zidane. But Barcelona president believes the deal for the youngster will be strategic if no mistakes are made in the process. The embattled Camp Nou boss believes the key to hiring lies in Doha, not Paris which gives them the advantage over their fiercest rivals. Mbappe has less than two years left in his contract at Parc des Princes and the oil-rich club are yet to offer him a new five-year mega-deal worth $150million.

Barca presidential candidate Victor Font is also looking to boost his chances at the election using Mbappe to sell his campaign for the hot seat in Catalonia. It is understood that Font has made contact with the French club and has been given assurances about the player. But he will have to battle with Zidane’s influence on the youngster who has been Mbappe’s hero since he was 13 and once had trials at Madrid before returning to Paris. Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Paris Saint Germain forward Kylian Mbappe has reportedly emerged as a top transfer target for Italian League giants Juventus. The Serie A champions are said to be plotting to make a world-record fee of about £360 million for the 2018 World Cup winner.

Sources claim they will include six-time Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo in the deal to sign the Frenchman as reported by The Mirror.

Liverpool came from one goal down to beat stubborn Sheffield United 2-1 and stretch their unbeaten run at Anfield to 61 games.

The victory also saw the Reds bounce back to winning ways having dropped points in their Merseyside Derby against Everton at the Goodison Park last weekend. They also lost one of their key players Virgil van Dijk to a long injury lay off and has been ruled out for the rest of the season. Sander Berge shot the visitors ahead just after 13 minutes of action from the spot-kick after Fabinho was said to have fouled Oliver McBurnie just at the edge of the box. Liverpool’s Diogo Jota heading his side ahead over Sheffield United at Anfield.

Chris Wilder’s men were unable to hold on to their lead beyond the 41st minute after tapping into the net from close range. The Brazilian superstar benefited from a poor save by Aaron Ramsdale after Sadio Mane tried heading home an equaliser four minutes before half time. Mohamed Salah gave Liverpool the lead for the first time in the 63rd minute but his goal was chopped off for offside.

However, one minute later, Diogo Jota headed the Reds ahead after towering to meet Mane’s cross from the left flank
