If Chelsea had beaten us to Alisson, and then Michael Edwards, Jurgen Klopp and co. turned to Rob Green instead, we can only imagine what our fanbase would do!
But that’s the reality for our rivals from west London, who are on the verge of announcing the transfer of the 38-year-old, according to the Telegraph.
The Blues are probably going to lose Thibaut Courtois to Real Madrid, but it’s as of yet unclear who they wish to replace him with as their no.1, if the Belgian gets his wish and departs Stamford Bridge.
It can’t actually be Green, can it?!
Liverpool fans on Twitter of course took great delight in their predicament – as rivals have been doing to us for years regarding our transfer market woes.
In all seriousness, we think Chelsea will still be a major threat this term. Jorginho will help them keep the ball relentlessly and if they can keep N’Golo Kante and Eden Hazard, they’ll still win plenty more than they lose.
But here’s some of what’s been said online!
We get Alisson, you get Rob Green. Levels. https://t.co/LA5zkXDKyu

Liverpool: “We are delighted to announce the signing of Alisson.”
Chelsea: “We see your Alisson and raise you a Robert Green.”
*whispers, “we really showed them”*
