We knew it wouldn’t take long…
Because nobody does ‘potential blockbuster signings’ better than Liverpool fans!
Last summer, club vans were followed on motorways and flights from all over Europe were tracked into John Lennon – and it doesn’t appear 2018 will be any different.
As the Alisson speculation ramped up (we’ve made a bid and are deep in talks for the Brazilian), LFC Twitter account @TheLowerKenny posted a tongue in cheek tweet that suggested the 25-year-old had just boarded a private plane in Sardinia to Liverpool!
This is complete rubbish, obviously, but it didn’t half make us laugh.
Another LFC fan saw that this plane ended up heading east, sadly!
Italian journalist Tancredi Palmeri has suggested Alisson will now head to Liverpool to discuss personal terms, while Di Marzio reckons the transfer could be finalised in the coming days.
Liverpool haven’t had an elite goalkeeper since Pepe Reina – and the Spaniard waned in his last two seasons at Anfield.
So that’s around seven years of mediocre shot-stopping.
The time has undeniably come for the club to bite the bullet and pay the extortionate fee required to get our man.
