Liverpool are no longer a selling club and will be able to keep hold of star players like Mo Salah and Roberto Firmino after posting record profits last week.
A football finance source told Express Sport: “Liverpool are no longer a selling club. After posting profits of £125m, they can resist any offers.”
Stories from Italy emerged earlier this week which claimed Juventus would look to sign Salah in a deal which would involve Paulo Dybala, but while that claim is very far-fetched (swap-deals hardly ever come to fruition), the financial state of the club shows any such offer would be rebuffed.
Argentine Dybala is a good player – but he’s no Salah.
The good work that FSG have done off the pitch, as well as Jurgen Klopp’s on-field transformation, means the Reds are in a really strong position now and can build even further.
As well as the financial aspect, the Reds are quite simply an attractive place to play football now – right in the mix for major trophies.
We are no longer a stepping stone, but a destination; able to attract the best players and keep them at Anfield for the peak of their careers.
Big players like Salah and Mane have contracts until 2023 and there will be more arrivals in the summer. It’s a very exciting time to be a Reds fan.
