Liverpool transfer heartbreak soon to be confirmed after Sky Sports journo’s update

Posted by

Liverpool supporters are ready for a very busy summer of transfer activity both incoming and outgoing but it seems that one piece of news many have been dreading, is set to be rubber stamped.

As reported by Florian Plettenberg: ‘News #Bellingham: Dortmund wants to finalize the deal with Real Madrid very soon as always reported via @SPORT1. Understand: A total package of €150m is unlikely.

‘Internally Real compares him with Tchouameni (€80m). There are expectations about a possible package of €120-130m with bonus payments included. #BVB has received no official offer yet’.

The update from the Sky Sports Germany journalist will perhaps be of most interest because of the price tag that has been placed on the entire deal, including bonuses, of ‘€120-130m’ which roughly converts around £110m.

That price tag seems to have both been enough to secure the services of Jude Bellingham and also the figure that we have decided was too much for us to either compete with other clubs, or be able to fully refresh the squad with whatever was left in our transfer kitty.

If Jurgen Klopp is to sign four midfielders for around £60 million each, then only time will tell whether the right decision has been made for us to price ourselves out of a move.

It seems fair to assume we will spend at least £110m this summer but it’s all about the fine balance of quality and quantity when it seems we need several players in the same window.

For now though, a player who seemed attainable and someone who could be a stalwart of our club for years to come, looks to be fully out of our grasp.

  1. How is it heartache when LFC pulled out of the deal and they have cheaper options in line cost saving with qaulity

  2. the world cup did show us that you actually need a number of what could be average skilled midfielders. As it is the fitness and ability with 5 substitutes to keep up the pressing running intensity.

    bellingham has a documented weak knee that a premier league career would have shortened his longevity, so for LFC and Jude and his price tag, Madrid is the best place for him and for LFC, who should hopefully look to sign 4 midfielders and another defender

  3. Why would any team pay an agent £20M for doing nothing except being a father on the make . Bellingham great player no question but never worth the outlay . Also how are Real Madrid able to afford this and supposedly Harry Kane must be selling half their squad .
