There seems to be a lot of uncertainty coming out of Anfield from Liverpool FC already at the beginning of the season surrounding the future of Emre Can. Emre Can have come into his form and has his agents demanding for a huge payday. Without Emre Can on the team, Liverpool will surely struggle this season and the odds for a title will be staggering. If you’re a betting person the odds right now are 28 to 1 for the Reds to claim the title (source of the odds: redbet). Not the best of bets as Man U are looking unstoppable.
Can Emre Can Have It All?
The controversy at Liverpool FC isn’t going to stop with Coutinho in the summertime but will continue into the winter with Emre Can. His agents are demanding a high wage that would only put him second to Coutinho. The tricky part about this is that they also want a remarkably low release clause.
Liverpool FC doesn’t want to give him a high wage and a release clause that would allow him to leave for less than he is worth. That just doesn’t make sense from any angle you view it. However, with Emre Can’s contract coming to an end soon; it allows him to have the stronger negotiating position because if they don’t agree to a contract, then Emre Can leave on a free transfer in January.
Where is the loyalty?
This situation is not uncommon in football today but leaves most of the fans who die for the clubs in a weird position. The players want massive salaries with low release clauses so they can go at any time they wish? What happened to the players that would do anything to stay at their club and give everything they had to their clubs because they were loyal and showed true devotion to them.
The Coming Days for Emre Can
As Liverpool FC and Emre Can try to negotiate terms of his deal and the loyal fans of Liverpool wait to see how it will play out. It will be a true shame to see Emre go but it would be an even bigger shame if they let him go on a free transfer which is just not an option.
