Liverpool tipped to secure £190,000-a-week star

Published

on

English Premier League outfit Liverpool have been tipped to make a move for Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho or French Ligue 1 outfit, Paris Saint Germain star, Kylian Mbappe if any of their star forwards leave Anfield.

The Premier League club can boast of Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane at both flanks but they are already being linked with a move away from the club and because of their quality and importance, a replacement something worth talking about.

Former Red, Danny Murphy, has therefore urged the Merseyside outfit to sign a top player like Jadon Sancho or Kylian Mbappe if one of their African stars end up leaving the club.

The 43-year-old stated “Liverpool’s team is heavily reliant on the front three so you can’t take a risk. You have to bring in a superstar.”

“I don’t think there are too many out there that you put above Salah in terms of numbers and ability to win matches and score goals. Maybe a Sancho or Mbappe?.”

He, therefore, urged manager Jurgen Klopp to focus on the England international and Dortmund star because he is realistically what the club can afford.

Mbappe earns around £315,000-a-week while Jadon Sancho gets a salary of £190,000-a-week to note the difference. Meanwhile, Liverpool’s highest earners are Salah and Spanish maestro, Thiago with about £200,000 weekly wage each.

While the fees of both players might be high, their quality is tempting enough to want to invest in as Sancho directly contributed to over 30 goals in his first season with Dortmund. Last season, he scored 20 goals and provided as many assists for the German side, however, this time around, he has not been in top form.

Speaking on his future, Jadon Sancho said “Right now I’m focused on winning the Premier League and the Champions League again with the club”

Meanwhile, Salah who is linked with a move to Spain quoted to have said

“I think Madrid and Barcelona are top clubs… We never know what is going to happen in the future, but right now I’m focused on winning the Premier League and the Champions League again with my club.”

Brighton manager Graham Potter has sent a message to the likes of Man United and Liverpool that he’s ‘confident’ Yves Bissouma will stay this January despite intense speculation linking him away.

The midfielder is on the wish list of Arsenal and Man United as managers of both clubs have complained about being short at the middle.

Recent reports claimed Brighton had slapped a £50million price tag on Bissouma, but it’s now obvious they want him to remain.

‘Players at this level know that at this time of year there is speculation and things in newspapers,’ Potter told reporters.

‘It’s part of what they have to deal with and they know they have to focus on their football and let all the other stuff take care of itself.

‘There are lots of ifs and buts. I’m confident. I think Yves is enjoying his football here but with the transfer window you never know.’

Though Potter remains hopeful of keeping hold of Bissouma, he said Brighton had to plan for every eventuality and could not rule out the Mali international moving on this month.

‘It doesn’t matter what I say. We have to adapt – which we do, which we have done,’ he added.

‘You have to plan for things you can’t necessarily foresee. We’re in a good place but we’ll see.’

Thus could be a boost to Arsenal especially after former England striker Darren Bent urged Arsenal to test Brighton’s resolve for Bissouma.

‘I would like to see Arsenal go and get Yves Bissouma from Brighton,’ he said on talkSPORT.

‘I really like him, I think he’s a top, top player. I think he’s gettable as well.

‘Him and Partey in the middle of the park, that is what you call protection in front of the back four by the way.

‘You let the likes of [Emile] Smith Rowe, [Martin] Odegaard bomb forward.

‘If you can Yves Bissouma, I think he can turn into a top player in this league, I really do. I really like him.

‘He’s one of those players that can be box-to-box but if you ask him to sit there, he’s comfortable in possession. Yeah he’s a top player.’

How Man United decision will impact Liverpool as agent weighs in on star’s transfer chances

Published

on

Manchester United has reportedly concluded to loan Axel Tuanzebe to Napoli but his agent has hinted that it will impact the future of one Liverpool star.

The 24-year-old will go to the Italian Serie A outfit for the next six-month loan after he was recalled by United from Aston Villa.

Tuanzebe is expected to fill Napoli’s need for a new centre-back which means they will no longer be making a move for Liverpool defender Nat Phillips at the Diego Armando Maradona Stadium.

Phillips’ agent, Colin Murdock, has also managed Tuanzebe in the past. He told Area Napoli, via Sport Witness: “Napoli have taken Axel Tuanzebe, our former client, on loan, so I think they have finished their operations as regards to the role of central defender. Therefore, I don’t think we need further comments on Nat Phillips.”

Phillips has made just three appearances this term under manager Jurgen Klopp as he has fallen down the pecking order following Ibrahima Konate’s arrival in the summer and the return of centre-halves Virgil van Dijk and Joel Matip to full fitness.

On the Englishman, Klopp said in December: “We cannot keep him forever, that’s clear. We needed him, just to be safe, for that half-year.

“We will see what happens in the window. He was fine doing it because he’s a great guy. People love him because of his heading but with his feet he is unbelievable. He’s a late starter, but his development is unbelievable. I would sign him for any club except Liverpool, because we have him.”

Steve McManaman has told Manchester United that they have a bigger ‘need’ of Borussia Dortmund midfielder Jude Bellingham, than the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City.

“When you look through the teams and the sides that could buy him – Manchester United would need that type of player as a central midfielder. Manchester City, with Rodri, Ilkay Gündogan, Bernardo Silva, not so much.

“Liverpool have got Jordan Henderson, Thiago, Fabinho. Of course it would be a great signing, he’s a great player, but whether Liverpool need him now is another thing.

“Henderson is moving towards the end of his career. James Milner also. So Liverpool could always take another centre midfielder but it’s very congested in there.

“I think United need a centre midfielder of that [Bellingham’s] ilk,” McManaman added.

Arsenal have been told by Danny Mills that they will be having a game-changing signing if they can secure the services of Georginio Wijnaldum from Paris Saint Germain.

Georginio Wijnaldum left Liverpool as one of the most successful players under Jurgen Klopp after his contract at Anfield expired in the summer.

The midfielder seems to be unhappy now at PSG and could be opened to a move.

Mills said, “If you could get him, it would be a fantastic signing. Why wouldn’t you take him? He’s proven that he’s a really good player with experience of winning things. He could make a real difference to that midfield. If you could get him it would be a fantastic signing and a real leader. Even if it’s on loan until the end of the season, I think it would be a good signing.”

Georginio Wijnaldum has confessed struggling at PSG and that hints he could jump at a lucrative offer from any suitors.

He told Dutch news outlet NOS: “I can’t say I’m completely happy, because the situation is not what I wanted.

“But that’s football and I’ll have to learn to deal with that. I’m a fighter. I have to stay positive and work hard to turn it around.

The 31-year-old midfielder signed for PSG over the summer transfer window on a free from but life has not been the same for him.

Speaking to Liverpool’s official website in June, Klopp said: “I will miss the player he is like crazy – highest-quality ability, one of the smartest players I have ever had the privilege to coach. His contribution was off the scale, a manager’s dream.”

Klopp also hailed Wijnaldum as the “perfect” midfielder, when speaking about the former Liverpool star back towards the end of 2019.

The German coach said: “Gini speaks on the pitch for the way he plays. It is just so obvious his importance. It is both directions, small spaces, big spaces, it is hard challenges, fine football, pretty much all of that.

“Is he the perfect midfielder? From the skillset, 100 per cent. He has all the things you need. There was his header against Barcelona too. He is not the tallest, but he is good in the air. He is a good jumper with good timing, all that stuff. It all makes him a pretty good footballer.”

Wijnaldum himself is unhappy about his career at PSG as he spoke in October about what has been a “difficult” start to his career in Paris.

He said: “I cannot say I am completely happy. The situation is not what I wanted. I have played a lot in recent years, was always fit and also did very well.

Man United, Liverpool has made his choice, Red Devils fans should bother less about reading this

Published

on

Both Manchester United and Liverpool have shown interest in Kalvin Phillips but he seems to have made a choice that does not favour the Red Devils.

According to reports, Philips will prefer a move to Anfield over Old Trafford and his choice is because he does not want to upset his beloved Leeds United fans.

The 26-year-old has been on the radar of the Reds and the Red Devils after his standout performances for Leeds and England over the last 18 months.

He still has an existing contract at the Yorkshire club until 2024, but could be the subject of a big-money move in the summer from either of the Premier League giants.

Whether he would turn down the move if the Red Devils were the only team to come in for him is yet to be seen, but he would certainly prefer a transfer to Liverpool given the option.

Man United now have a new manager, after agreeing with Ralf Rangnick for an interim role. This will no doubt, shapen the transfer activities of the club.

Rangnick will have his first transfer window in January, an opportunity for him to rebuild the team so as to compete for titles at the end of the season.
