LeBron James And Kylian Mbappe Exchange Profile Pics Amid Rumors Of A Sneaker Collaboration

LeBron James and Kylian Mbappe might be doing some business moves. The pair starred in a very curious exchange on social media, with Mbappe taking LeBron James' profile pic and James doing the same with the Paris Saint-Germain player.

This move turned a lot of heads to them in recent hours, especially knowing that LeBron is a partial owner of Premier League giants Liverpool, a club linked with a move for Mbappe in recent times. Well, that has nothing to do with a transfer or something. It was a business decision, yes, but it had to do with their collaboration for the LeBron 18 shoes. Both players are sponsored by Nike and the giant manufacturer is teaming up two of their biggest stars for these upcoming sneakers.

The Nike LeBron 18 will feature Mbappe’s colorway, but there is a catch. Even though the design is pretty cool and a lot of fans would be happy to have them, the sneaker will be available for grade school sizing.

Paris Saint-Germain have collaborated with Jordan in recent times, creating one of the best collections for Nike. Now it's Mbappe's turn and he will try to make the most advantage of this. He will team up with one of the greatest and most famous athletes in the world, someone he can look up to. Even though he's one of the best names in the world of soccer, Mbappe is only 22 and his future is extremely bright.

So no, this doesn't mean that LeBron is recruiting Mbappe to Liverpool, although the King has proven to be one of the smoothest recruiters in recent years.
