There have been some insane transfer rumours over the years, but French media might just have come up with the craziest story yet with a so-called ‘exclusive’.
Le10Sport claim that Jurgen Klopp is so desperate to sign Lille forward Nicolas Pepe that he wants to sanction the sale of Mo Salah in order to bring in the Ivorian.
Yes, you read that correctly. That’s a genuine story.
Reds man a step closer to big-money exit with latest transfer development
The report reasons that Salah and Klopp have fallen out, and therefore the German is keen to move him on and replace him with the winger, who was the top scorer in Ligue 1 this season and who will move on this summer.
Further to that, it claims that signing Pepe would disrupt the Reds’ squad harmony, with the solution to that the sale of the Egyptian (we’re not sure how they have come to that conclusion either).
We’ve never heard so much nonsense.
Interest in Pepe – for the right price – is logical, but Salah is going nowhere.
