Big Liverpool worry could become full-blown crisis if £10m bid is accepted – GFFN

Posted by

Liverpool may need to brace themselves for another bid from Saudi Arabia, this time coming in the form of a £10.3m bid for Thiago Alcantara courtesy of Al-Ahli.

Get French Football News’ X account shared the update in question amid the club’s ongoing search for midfield reinforcements.

A mass exodus of players in the middle of the park, as contracts expired and bids were accepted for Jordan Henderson and Fabinho, has left a once plump department looking unable to cope with the demands of the upcoming campaign.

Efforts are being made to ensure that we’re at the very least not short of a starting number six, though even that pursuit now looks in doubt amid Chelsea’s reported hijack attempt for Romeo Lavia.

With the club almost stripped to the bone when it comes to experienced heads, it would be utterly unfathomable for decision-makers to okay yet another Saudi Arabian swoop for a key player.

On Thiago Alcantara’s side, until we hear any different, the situation is clear: he wants to remain a Liverpool player and see out his contract (expiring in 2024).

That’s not a situation we expect to change unless we opt to actively push the Spaniard out of the door to recoup some value.

We surely wouldn’t be quite so foolish?

  1. get rid of thiago hes lazier than kieta

    at least when Kieta was fit , he didn’t give the ball away as much

    and Keita could have been injured four times as much and it still would not get near the cost of Thiago not being around.

    now unless Thiago is providing invaluable advice to the midfield youngster (and that would be expensive), I am sure Graham Souness would do it for free ( a proper midfield colossus) and better after all Souey did run rings around even Cruyff amongst other world stars in his day.

    but i just do not see this value. Klopp has his kryptonite Thiago, Beneitex persisted to every fans announce with Morientes. (actually the nearest in Liverpool’s history to us signing albiet players past their primes Morientez and Thiago are had been Galaticos). Even though i think we should get rid of Thiago; i acknowledge he was amazing for Barca and Bayern.

    However Liverpool can not build a team for 5 years around him and we will not progress with him, only cause a big 250,000 pounds a week salary bill.

    So if Thiago goes hoping FSG will just get Romeo and Caicedo done.

    not sure how Chelsea can buy anyone; where do you get financial fair play passes? I thought Mancheater City had the only one. Didnt know there were two, maybe there are three, but I supposed NewSaudiCastle United will get that out in the future.
