David Ornstein drops Liverpool transfer claim that will relieve Reds fans

Posted by

Manchester United have made ‘no progress’ with regard to a potential pursuit of Liverpool-linked midfielder Ryan Gravenberch.

David Ornstein dropped the update in question online amid the Red Devils’ ongoing pursuit of midfield reinforcements, with Sofyan Amrabat understood to be the side’s top target.

“United have considered a number of players for the defensive midfield position, including Bayern Munich’s Ryan Gravenberch,” the Athletic reporter noted in the publication’s live transfer blog. “But there has so far been no progress in regard to the 21-year-old Dutch international, who has also attracted interest from Liverpool.”

It leaves the Merseysiders’ pathway to the Dutchman’s signature relatively unobstructed, one might imagine, should Bayern officially sanction his departure this summer.

The Bundesliga champions are reportedly prepared to make a bid for Fulham’s Joao Palhinha this summer to fulfil Thomas Tuchel’s clear desire for a new No.6, which would surely expedite Liverpool’s pursuit of Gravenberch.

Whether the signing of the 21-year-old is entirely dependent on Bayern first landing a midfielder of their own remains entirely unclear, leaving fans with a nervous wait ahead of the window closing on 1st September.

At the very least it seems we won’t have much in the way of competition for what would be a superb final addition to the midfield department, as things currently stand.

  1. It is painful to hear no efforts from LFC in respect of a defensive midfielder signing.Gossips alone are insufficient. We the LFC supporters need truth. We are mindful of the fact that LFC is not like other clubs who are under the ownership of wealthy Saud Arabians. Here is West ham Utd they are trying their level best in the market.It is illogical to read LFC is linked with who and who.We are depressed as a result of that

    1. Did you not read it correctly or something ? Its MU that have made no progress. LFC have done all the work with due dilligence on four of five midfielders, we have to see what comes to fruition. All respect to Westham but its very different situation, firstly that they are armed with a fistful of cash from Declan Rice but also they are pursuing at a lower level. JK only wants to sign players who improve a team that is already very very good

  2. When are Liverpool actually going to make abid for someone, by that I mean a player for the firdt team and not the U18s. All we ever hear about are talks etc, are the club actually interested in buying someone because from Supporter who has been watching them since the old Second Division (pre Shankly) it doesn’t appear so.

    1. so you didn’t notice all the bids made for midfielders this summer, i mean there are seven that immediately come to mind, and i’m sure many more that we don’t know about. If you remember the old days we mastered the skill of ‘nobody knowing’ as we did with Szoboszlai we signed him as soon as anyone knew we had bid.
