There’s a number of Spanish outlets who are notorious for bogus transfer rumours.
Don Balon are in our opinion the worst – regularly linking Liverpool’s best players (namely Mo Salah) – to Real Madrid.
We expect MARCA to do the same before the Champions League Final, as they’re basically a mouthpiece for the Spanish giants and will do anything they can to unsettle Real’s potential transfer targets and opponents.
Salah, of course, is both!
However, they’re now oddly linking Brazilian midfielder Casemiro with a summer Anfield switch.
They claim we’ve put out the feelers for the 26-year-old in revenge for the initial Salah noises Real Madrid have made.
We definitely haven’t, though.
Casemiro is one of the first names on Zinedine Zidane’s team-sheet and so long as the Frenchman is in charge at the Bernabeu, he’ll be quite simply unattainable.
Liverpool do need a sitting midfielder this summer, but we can 100% guarantee you that Casemiro isn’t Anfield bound.
He is someone we’ll have to get the better of on May 26 in Kiev, however.
Casemiro anchors Madrid’s midfield and tracks runners, so we really hope the likes of Jordan Henderson, James Milner and Gini Wijnaldum are up to the challenge.
