Liverpool’s earnest hope and diehard spirit of ambition has often been made fun of over the years when the Merseyside Reds were still in their reengineering period.

However, after winning the Champions League last campaign, their supporters are back on their high horse and have now set their sights on the ever-elusive Premier League title this season.

The English giants are still undefeated so far this campaign, having only dropped points once when they drew against Manchester United at Old Trafford last week.

While many pundits are still skeptical of their Premier League hopes, the club continues to be stalwart in their ambitions and now their fans have received a further jolt of joy.

#Mbappe2020 was trending on Twitter as Liverpool won a massive court battle which ensured great financial liberty to them.

Jurgen Klopp’s team were fighting a legal battle with sponsors New Balance over the potential renewal and extension of their deal.

However, Liverpool wished to sign with sportswear giant Nike instead and contractual issues ensured a commercial court case. Now, the courts have ruled in favor of the club who are poised to sign a massive £30 million-a-year deal for half a decade with the American brand.

This has led fans to speculate that Liverpool are in the perfect financial position to acquire the services of Kyllian Mbappe in the coming year. The young Frenchman has been heavily linked to them and speculations have been rife for a while now. However, the unsaid concern always remained in the ability of Liverpool to acquire a youngster whose transfer fee is amongst the top ones ever paid.

However, this commercial saga has ensured that the English giants could very well be in a stellar position to make a blockbuster signing.

Are Liverpool fans embarking on an all-too-familiar road or is 2020 about to be their year at last?
