Benfica defender Andre Almeida would jump at the chance of transferring to either Liverpool or Manchester United – not that either move looks especially likely in the coming windows!
The 29-year-old currently plies his trade in his homeland, and in truth, his chances of a blockbuster transfer are probably already gone, despite Liverpool being pretty short in terms of genuine right-back options.
“I always had the dream of going to the Premier League. I really like Liverpool and Manchester United for their history,” he said, cited in the Echo.
“I also like Real Madrid and Barcelona , but I prefer the Premier League. I would not have the ability to play all the starting games.”
Almeida isn’t wrong in that he’d probably struggle to start ahead of Trent Alexander-Arnold right now…
Our fullback is genuinely world-class and has a chance of earning selection into this year’s FIFPRO XI.
In Trent’s absence though, Joe Gomez is likely the first replacement, and he’s more comfortable at centre-back – with Jordan Henderson and James Milner capable of doing a job too.
At EOTK, we would have likely strengthened the position over the summer, but Jurgen Klopp decided to stick with a small squad he trusts implicitly – and in fairness – who are we to argue?
