Old school for you, Stevie Gs best mate says VVD and Keita are all but done and clubs are saving face for now via the media.

Coutinho is 50/ 50.

Believable8 7Unbelievable

27 Jul 2017 21:39:12
Stevie's second best mate told me that they couldn't complete on VVD and Kieta until Coutinho was sold as the £133 million Barcelona are going to pay will cover the other 2s transfer fees.

Agree5 8Disagree

27 Jul 2017 21:47:31
It may be the wine talking but I think Keita and VVD would do us more in a season than Couts so I'd take that deal. Not that I don't rate him as I think he is incredibly under-rated but more steel at the back and in midfield is essential to us.

If juventus sign Matuidi as expected, will they end their chase of Emre?

Believable5 0Unbelievable

{Ed001's Note - yes, it is one or other for them. They would prefer Can but are not willing to meet our asking price for a player coming to the end of his contract.}

27 Jul 2017 15:02:09
Great news eds. Would you then expect this to change his thinking of a new contract and sign?

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - I don't know, but probably not as money is not the issue, it is playing time.}

27 Jul 2017 15:27:59
Ed just wondering does he want a specific role in midfield and is worried he'll be second fiddle to hendo?

Agree3 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - he wants to play regularly, especially with a world cup coming up. He is not bothered if it is the deep role or the more advanced role, he just wants to play. There is more than just the return of Hendo to worry him, there is the fact Couts (if staying) is likely to play deeper a lot of the time. There is the attempts to sign Oxlade-Chamberlain and Keita, who would both want a berth in the centre. Then there is Robertson coming in, meaning Milner will also be vying for a spot there.}

27 Jul 2017 15:39:20
Plus Lallana and Wijnaldum ed. When you think about it, it makes zero sense trying to bring Keita in at all imo?

Agree2 2Disagree

{Ed001's Note - I have said that some need to go anyway.}

27 Jul 2017 15:40:28
Ed001 does this mean Robertson should be a starter come September? I was assuming he was a potential starter but not necessarily above Milney in the pecking order.

Agree3 1Disagree

{Ed001's Note - he should be yes. Milner got worse as the season went on, as he offered no threat teams got at him more, so he sat back deeper, offering less threat and allowing himself to be got at more and so on.}

27 Jul 2017 15:42:51
Hi Eds, I'm perplexed that players can demand for playing time. Will it be something like a clause included in the contract or just some sort of a verbal agreement? If every player demands a certain number of playing minutes, then what's the point of having training sessions to see who deserves a starting position in the team? I mean, if a player is guaranteed playing time, then he could end up being lazy. Also, form is another thing. If a player is not at his best, then he should be dropped. Simple as that. So, what I mean is, Can should make it difficult for Klopp by being at the top of his game. If he's good enough, surely he'll get the minutes. Just my thoughts.

Agree2 1Disagree

{Ed001's Note - I understand what you are saying, but if you see your manager spending a potential 70+m on a player who plays in your position, spends a record fee on another player so he can move the best player in the team into your position and the captain and vice-captain are also rivals for a place, would you not fear for your chances of a game?}

27 Jul 2017 15:46:07
If he's as good as where told he is then he plays doesn't he.

He's really going to leave Liverpool because of challenge for places and expect to play every week for juventus? Like seriously.

The lads ok, far from this wonder where getting led to believe he is.

You don't get guaranteed playing time at any top club. He hasn't done enough to earn it in 3 years at the club, hence why he isn't a starter.

He's not a patch on our boy hendo, but if he was leaving you would all be kissing the heavens. Shame.

See ya can lad. Not bothered either way, in MY opinion. Simply not good enough.

Agree3 7Disagree

{Ed001's Note - if you look at the options he is competing with, then you would also have fears. Juve would pick him every week.}

27 Jul 2017 15:58:55
Ed is there any other Midfield player we are possibly open to selling or interest in at this time please that you are aware of?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - Spurs would take Lallana but that is about it that is currently even a potential move.}

27 Jul 2017 16:10:06
But you can't justify running away because things are going to get tough.

There's always going to be competition that's what keeps you on your toes. Worker hard and faster than all of the others every week in training. Making the manager have no other choice but to play you.

Hendo could potentially be out sometime next year. There will be opportunities. Klopp likes him as pretty much plays him whenever fit.

Think it's cowardly myself.

Agree1 10Disagree

{Ed001's Note - you need help if you think it is cowardly to go to Juve and win trophies playing regularly in a world cup year and ensure you have every chance of getting in that German team. It is not running away to have the intelligence to see that the manager is planning for a future without you in the side. Some of these comments are just ridiculous.}

27 Jul 2017 16:18:52
Whatever happened to the days of any player fighting and pushing themselves to the very limit of their potential rather than looking for an agreement on a basis of playing time and their preferred position? In my opinion if you think your good enough go and prove it during training and do the same and more on the playing field and if someone comes in and performs better than you in that same position fight to get your place back. Ok we are well overstocked in many areas but competitiveness on and off the field should help improve a squad better rather than comparing contract sizes as in today's game.
I get where players are coming from these days and like Can as a footballer but when push comes to shove sometimes players need their ego brought into check and told how it is and how it's going to be and if they don't like that sadly it would be time to look to move elsewhere.

Agree1 1Disagree

{Ed001's Note - it doesn't work like that any more. If a club spends a record fee, that player is going to play.}

27 Jul 2017 16:20:59
Ed are players always aware of who the Manager is trying to sign? Like Can being aware of Keita? Is it discussed in team meetings or anything to gauge what the team think on potential arivals?

Agree0 0Disagree

{Ed001's Note - no but he would have to live under a rock not to know.}

27 Jul 2017 16:26:58
If coutinio is going to leave we seriously need to keep hold of lallana. After cout's he is the guy that makes things happen.

Agree2 2Disagree

27 Jul 2017 16:38:21
If the guy can't get a game at Liverpool then why does he think he will at juventus? Juventus probably at a slightly higher level than us last year. Well they were in ucl final. I can understand his thinking of course with world cup coming up but I reckon he could live to regret it if he goes. We have been more patient with him than they will in Italy. That said he is getting better all the time. I hope he stays or we will have to find someone else as that'll be 2 holding midfielders gone this year with none coming in.

Agree2 1Disagree

{Ed001's Note - because they want him to sign for them, whereas we are signing replacements.}

27 Jul 2017 17:16:45
I was looking at last season's matches and Emre did ok on game time and I think it would be the same this season
Lfc games 47
In squad 41
Started 31
Played 90 minutes 25
Taken off 6
On the bench 10
Used sub 9
Unused sub 1
All in a season when we had no European football and knocked out of the fa cup in the forth round.
I know they want NK but I don't think it's going to happen so he would get game time. I would like him to stay but if he wants guarantees of game time I would let him go because you can't start that or every player will want guarantees. You train hard and play well you start, simple.

Agree7 0Disagree

27 Jul 2017 17:43:00
His play time doesn't tell the whole story BR. He was benched for the first part of the season and it was only injuries that brought him into a starting berth. He was not great for quite a while, with only perhaps the last quarter of the season showing any kind of good form.

Agree1 2Disagree

27 Jul 2017 18:10:44
Reading this thread I realise just how under rated Can and his potential is! I always feel confident when he is in the starting 11.
I could be wrong but I don't think it's the wording of the contract or contractual guarantees but at least to feel wanted and part of the plans for future squad, rather than back up in case of an injury.
Hope he stays personally! Great player and still improving in my opinion.

Agree4 0Disagree

27 Jul 2017 18:23:29
Emre can is better suited for the Italian league also. He will have time to dwell on the ball, where ad in the prem he's getting closed down and makes a bad pass or mistake.

Agree3 1Disagree

27 Jul 2017 18:25:09
You said we need competition for mignolet, as without it he doesn't fear for his place.

It is running away when you say he is getting off because Liverpool are signing players and he doesn't think he's going to play.

Hendo knows where signing those players and itsnt getting off.

Every single manager tried to replace carra. He didn't get off

Sturridge is staying and fighting for his place. We have signed another up front, well two more.

That's what top teams do.

So next year when juventus sign someone like we know they will do, is can moving again?

It doesn't matter what juventus say, if he doesn't perform he doesn't play. He's not getting a guarantees starting place for the remainder of his career. No-one has that.

He wants to win trophies then teams need to get stronger, usually by signing players. This is wants that entails. Staying your absolute best, training hard, keeping in absolute tip top condition. Winning and owning your place.

I'll say it again but that's all hendo has ever done. Makes himself undropabble. Doesn't matter who we sign that lad give 1500% each and ever game and makes it so he can't be out the team. That's a fighter

What your doing is justify a player not willing to stake his claim and fight for his place. So what if klopp wants rid, make him eat his words. It's not a sakho situation where klopp done with ya. He plays can alot. Usually if he's fit he's playing. This could be klopp just seing what he's made of. Klopps entire team is built around spirit and fight, he needs it where you stop for even a second and your out. He's never going to have it where a player isn't fearing for there starting positions, that's how he's going to get your all every game. No good asking a player to give his all and then he thinks actually there s no-one else to take my place so I can walk here, he has to play me.

Can like every player isn't in the starting team come opening day. There all earning it right now. Go and show him who you are. Don't run away. which plain and simply is what can is thinking of doing.

Agree3 0Disagree

27 Jul 2017 18:25:34
Anybody interested in Milner ed?

Agree1 0Disagree

{Ed002's Note - No and Liverpool are not looking to sell.}

27 Jul 2017 18:32:52
Emre wasn't benched to start the season. He reported to training later than most and picked up a knock. It's true that he didn't pick it up until maybe January but he was still getting fit.

Agree2 0Disagree

27 Jul 2017 18:30:11
I get what you're saying ed. Klopps building something that he doesn't seem to be involved in. In that case who can blame him. This makes me think we will sign kieta. Dunno why exactly. Salah deal makes his place less certain. Possible kieta deal makes it even less so but if we don't get him and coutinio leaves then there is no change, could this be why liverpool are umming and ahing over can contract?

Agree0 1Disagree

{Ed001's Note - Liverpool are not, he was offered one but has not signed it yet.}

27 Jul 2017 18:59:40
I see Eds position, Hendo is obviously Cans direct competition in the deeper role (and hopefully has less injuries this season), then in addition you have potentially NK coming in as well. Perhaps Can sees that as a message he's not core to Klopps future plans at the base of midfield.

Only argument I can see against that would be if we plan on playing 4-2-3-1 more often, in which case Hendo, NK and Can can all compete for 2 slots. Looks a well balance side with any of those behind an attacking midfield of Mane, Coutinho and Salah and Firmino upfront.

Agree4 1Disagree

27 Jul 2017 18:31:00
Cool. Cheers man.

Just as I stated previously. I don't think we need Keita!

Agree1 2Disagree

27 Jul 2017 20:26:37
Can played most of the last season carrying an injury.

The last six were was the first time he was fully fit.
It was obvious that it made a huge difference to the lads performances,

Be was one of the main reasons we made top 4, including scoring one of the goals of the season.

Agree3 0Disagree

27 Jul 2017 20:58:05
End of the day. Are you going to fight yourself into the team or run away with your tail between your legs.

Going off incoming, every single player could think therebgetting replaced and run away for a move.

Hendo was like a piece of glass last year and now a 80 mil player could be on his way. I already know hendo will be running g harder and faster than any sod there. His captacy is challenged at every attempt, his place in the team is questioned every injury. But the lad never give in. He wasn't wanted by br, but stayed and got so in brs face, he had no other option but to play him. Now he's captain. That's the culture.

That's what we need. Players who stick to fingers up to the manager and say f u im in this team.

I cannot stick by or even pretend to contemplate a player whose running to another club for guaranteed playing time, instead of fighting for a starting place where he is.

I'd rather he went as he has clearly contemplated it.

When the going gets tough and it's the 85 minute, pissin down, freezing cold, you just wanna get into bed, Netflix and chill. That's where you see what your made off. Klopp needs winners. No people who Are off with the first sign of pressure (and let's face it when was th e last time we brought in such a top level cm- we haven't even done it yet -) yet the first time it's done, another cm wants out. Lol he needs to go to stoke where he will be lauded and the big man. Juventus are richer and worse than us. Next year when veratti becomes available, they'll be in the mix. Will can be off then aswel?

Agree2 1Disagree

27 Jul 2017 21:02:41
I think the Italian league woild suit the lad perfectly well.

Agree0 0Disagree

27 Jul 2017 21:14:24
No, competing for a place would be as it was last year when he was genuinely competing for 3 spots between himself and 3 or 4 others. But now with the moves we're trying to make, the writing is on the wall so to speak. That pool could grow to 6 or 7 players where 3 of those (hendo, coutinho, possibly keita) would be default starters. That's not a competition anymore. Can't blame him for keeping an eye on another opportunity.

Agree0 1Disagree

27 Jul 2017 22:20:47
Wet disappointed in this. He should back himself to be good enough, not just expect a starting role. It's an attitude he should not have. All top teams have competition for places and if he's not willing to fight for a place in a team in our current position when we haven't even signed anyone yet I think that tells you all you need to hear. Massive shame as I think he could be special.

Agree0 0Disagree

27 Jul 2017 23:05:55
I wonder what some of you guys do for a job! Notwithstanding the fact he's been a great professional, improved consistently and scored the goal of the season ( and great hair let's not forget that! )
Football, like any job, its about opportunities, different leadership comes in, company strategy changes, the market's suddenly different etc, when these things happen you evaluate your position and sometimes you move on.
It isn't about being good or bad, its understanding when skill set is better placed elsewhere, amplified by the lure of millions and millions of pounds.
Can's smart, he'll move on, he knows Klopp isn't certain about him for a starting berth, and his competition is fierce, so why not guarantee his progression elsewhere. Look at Salah, look at Lukaku, look at Pique, these guys aren't quitters, they are just guys who could read the room and knew when to move on.

Agree0 0Disagree

28 Jul 2017 00:52:20
I like Can, I think we need a good pool of players for the number of games we may potentially have to play. We will probably have injuries because of the way our lads have to run, and players will tire, so I think it would be a mistake to let him go. All that said, I see Ed1s explanation and how the lad views it.

But, all this is apparently assuming we are signing Keita ( - and reading ED1's replies VVD, too) so it sounds like it has a good chance of happening then, or is it all just hyperthetical?

Agree0 0Disagree

27 Jul 2017 13:22:32
Afternoon Eds, is sturridge now expected to stay at Liverpool? It seems to have gone very quiet over his expected departure. I certainly hope he stays and gets a good run of games under his belt 👍.

Believable6 1Unbelievable

{Ed001's Note - he was always expected to stay by me, as he wants to stay.}

27 Jul 2017 14:40:19
I reckon this is the season when he's back to his best, if it is god knows this side will take some stopping, the amount of chances we make he could well be top scorer.

Agree13 0Disagree

27 Jul 2017 15:02:09
My sentiments exactly Ed001! Couldn't agree more Ruthless. On his day he is up there with the best in the league, let's just hope he stays fit because like you say with the chances we create with a fully fit sturridge on the pitch its going to equal lots of goals 👍.

Agree4 0Disagree

27 Jul 2017 15:04:39
looked slower than ever in pre season to me. reminds me of torres and owen after their injuries, some players never get that fast twitch muscle back. hope you're right though.

Agree2 7Disagree

{Ed001's Note - Sturridge is not all about pace, it is his touch, which is sublime, his skill and his feet are still quick enough to dance around a defender and create an opening. He just needs to stop worrying about using his pace to burst past people and concentrate on what he does best - scoring goals.}

27 Jul 2017 15:47:49
He needs to just stay in and around the box. He drops too deep for me. With Mane and Salah he shouldn't need to do this.

Agree3 1Disagree

27 Jul 2017 15:49:20
when we do put studge through middle if Mane and co put that ball in the 6 yard box or anywhere near it 9/ 10 a fit studge will put it in the next hope for a big season for him would love for him to get back to his best.

Agree1 0Disagree

27 Jul 2017 16:08:03
I agree Ed but his x factor was his ability to run beyond defenders and finish calmly. his off the ball movement was/ is brilliant. without that pace I think he has lost that possibility of being world class. He can still create openings but he is less effective in the way we play now that closing down and rapid counter attacks are our bread and butter.

Agree1 1Disagree

{Ed001's Note - but we don't need him to do that, we have Salah and Mane to do it.}

27 Jul 2017 17:21:49
But do we not lose out in his chasing to win the ball back, something that Firminho does fantastically well. Not sure Sturbridge anything close to that level of defending from the front.

Agree1 0Disagree

27 Jul 2017 12:41:31
Got to admit sadly I think coutinho is on his way out hopefully if he is we get about £120m in the current climate, then it's all about spending wisely and personally I trust klopp to do so.
Here's hoping lfc's transfer window gets better from here on in.

Believable1 11Unbelievable

27 Jul 2017 14:51:44
120 mil in the current market is absolutely nothing. kyle walker is 50 million for f sake. phil is worth 300 mil by that valuation. he is top 5 player in the world. no other top 5 player would cost only 120 mil and yet we should accept that? an 18 year old is going to madrid for 150.

Agree8 7Disagree

27 Jul 2017 15:12:46
300 Million is a bit of a stretch, however, he is arguably the second best player in the Brazil national team, whatever bid is placed should reflect that.

Agree7 1Disagree

27 Jul 2017 15:20:27
Only 120 million josh? Really come on dude. I think in today's climate that is about right. Maybe a little more. I hope he wants to stay, if he doesn't I hope we get at least 120 for him but these deals have to be done In time for us to line up some replacement. Don't like the word replacement as Phil is nearly irreplaceable. But we need enough time to do decent deals. I guess we would have enough cash flying around to test rbl resolve. The Croatian Barcelona are offering sounds decent. If we could get him and kieta for Phil coutinio it would be okay.

Agree0 1Disagree

27 Jul 2017 15:49:18
The fact is, amongst talk of him being irreplaceable, that he wasn't our best player last season was he? No, mane was. Who we signed for 30 odd million. Of course there are players out there who could score more goals and make more goals than Phil did last yr (his best yr in terms of gls assists) who we could sign. I want him to stay but talk of neymars reportedly 192 million move has made people think crazy prices, myself included. There is sense in Danny murphy comments.

Agree1 0Disagree

27 Jul 2017 16:13:31
it sounds crazy for me to say that 120 mil is not a lot but if you look at the prices that have been talked about in the last 18 months then its really not. 150 mil for an 18 year old? 80 mil for pogba? 190 for neymar? how much was lukaku!?

On another note. it worries me that you don't know who rakitic is. He is nothing special at all and no better than what we already have which is why they are offering him. many many better players out there.

Agree2 1Disagree

27 Jul 2017 16:14:43
I agree random red. Obviously we aren't going to get 300 mil, I just mean that he should be valued appropriately given the valuation of the other current best players in the world.

Agree0 1Disagree

27 Jul 2017 17:59:48
People are losing their minds here. I love coutinho, but 120m would be more than a fair price for him. That would buy 3 players, admittedly the coutinho replacement wouldn't be quite as good, but the other 2 could displace players that aren't quite up to it. A great cd, a right back more suited than clyne, and a slight downgrade on coutinho would improve the team overall, and that's all i care about.

I'd hate to see him go, i really would, but we'd all move on and come through the other side a more complete team if it happened.

Agree1 0Disagree

27 Jul 2017 18:20:44
Great player but he's not in the top 5 in the world mate.

27 Jul 2017 19:48:13
Personally with figures this season being thrown about just in Barkley and sigurdsson then what is Phil worth? As he's in a totally different league to these and how much would it cost to replace him? And what fee would he command next season? 150+ mil? I sadley understood with saurez why he had to go he was shaming our great club with his antics but just because Barcelona come knocking we shouldn't roll over they should remember who we are ynwa.

Agree0 0Disagree

27 Jul 2017 13:24:28
Afternoon all, what a glum my day -. -
But to brighten things up, LFC have reported slapped a 134mil price tag on Coutinho!
I'll never be happy in any situation of Couts leaving so i'm glad to see that price tag (reportedly) and hope it puts of Barcelona.

Glummy * damn autofail strikes again.

27 Jul 2017 13:53:57
We cld get £200m for him it doesn't mean we'll be able to get who we want to replace him. Plus when you sell your best player you become a less attractive proposition to other players, unless you're already winning titles.

Agree5 3Disagree

27 Jul 2017 14:48:37
what good is 134 million to us? any half decent player will cost us 100 mil after the club sees that we have cash to spend. There is absolutely no one on his level that there is even a remote chance of us getting so its completely pointless. If we HAVE to sell him then we should be asking for the same price as Neymar. I for one would much rather have phil in our team than Neymar so we should slap a 200mil price on him. Even then Harzard, messi, ronaldo (the only 3 players as good as phil) aren't coming to us.

Agree3 4Disagree

27 Jul 2017 15:24:28
We don't want anyone playing for liverpool who doesn't want to play for liverpool. We don't wanna lose Phil but we don't wanna hold him hostage either. There are plenty of players out there who could come in as a playmaker and be brilliant. Let's no over react, it's not the end of the world.

Agree0 2Disagree

27 Jul 2017 15:34:24
I honestly agree that coutinho should not be for sale at any price.
If for what ever reason he was to leave the player I'd like to see would be Sanchez
I know he turned us down before and I'm not saying he's going to sign for us just who I think is the only person who could replace him.

Agree1 0Disagree

27 Jul 2017 16:00:37
I think putting a ridiculously high price for Coutinho is right to kill off Barca's interest. Some might argue that it will be difficult to replace Coutinho and its true, just like we've struggled to replace Suarez till today. But if a player wants out, it will be difficult to keep him happy by refusing to fulfill his wishes. Also, when Barcelona or Real comes knocking, it'll be pretty hard to turn them down. Personally, I hope he's happy to stay, for another season at least. So that we can have more time to scout for a suitable replacement.

Agree2 0Disagree

27 Jul 2017 02:21:34
Ed002, huge apology if this has been answered previously but there is so much written on here about Coutinho, Barcelona, LFC, etc, it makes a search almost impossible.
Have Barcelona contacted Liverpool and asked for permission to talk to Coutinho about a move to Spain?
Thanks in advance.

Believable2 5Unbelievable

{Ed002's Note - They have been in discussions with Liverpool but I am not aware they have permission to talk with the player.}

Didn't the bid get turned down? So id guess until liverpool accept a bid they won't be able to speak to him directly?

Agree0 4Disagree

{Ed002's Note - Unless they give permission.}

27 Jul 2017 11:32:15
Thanks Ed002. Does that mean that paper talk of Barcelona agreeing a deal with the player are wide of the mark? Or is there some truth in that they have agreed with his agent?

Not probing about tapping up here, just asking whether there is progress with the player/ his reps to gauge how far advanced things are?

I know you're not a betting man, but would I be correct in saying a transfer out of the club for Coutinho is more of a possibility now than it was a week or more ago?

Agree1 5Disagree

{Ed002's Note - I suspect his agent has oversetepped the mark. I expect Liverpool to resist any sale.}

Thanks Ed002. Based on reading the paper reports that are flying around, I'm really pleased that your assessment coincides with mine, as mine is based mainly on hope!

I think you mentioned a couple of days ago that the likely outcome of this issue is that we get one more year of Couts a la Suarez in 13/ 14.

Lets hope that extra year gives us as much excitement as 13/ 14, but with perhaps a slightly better outcome!

Revised expectations for this window? I think we'll keep Couts, get VVD, keep Can and not get Keita. On balance, I would be very happy with that.

Hi Ed2, thanks for all your updates. This site is always the place I visit to find out the latest transfer news. Liverpool have been meeting with Barcelona to discuss Coutinho on more than one occasion. In my opinion, if Liverpools stance is he's not for sale, why do they even bother having the meetings? By meeting them, I think we're encouraging them to put a bid in and indicating to the player the club will consider selling him. Also this is distracting the club from working on incoming deals. Is my point of view naive?

{Ed002's Note - It is business as usual. Clubs meet with other to discuss players joining and leaving.}

Hi eds. Looks although the field is open if want to sign Dalbert (or so papers say) any chance of us going for him now we've signed Robertson. I've been a Robertson supporter during build up to his signing but also feel Dalbert would be a better target.

Read a few reports of PSG, bidding £90 million tonight for Coutinho that has been flatly rejected, any idea if there's any truth in this at all?

Believable5 17Unbelievable

If he is going to go let's start a bidding war between PSG and Barcelona! Starting bids of £120 million then maybe we will start to entertain them!

We must keep him! Its essential.

Keita and VVD cannot be missed out on if we do sell him.

If it is indeed true that Coutinho has asked to leave, then we should not stand in his way BUT we should try our best to squeeze as much money out of Barcelona as we possibly could. Other clubs are doing that to us, so we'll look like pushovers if we do sell him on the cheap. If we can't get Keita for 75mil, what makes Barcelona so sure they can get Coutinho for 90mil? However, if the player is happy to stay, then we should turn down any bids for him, even if it is world record fee.

Can't we just disguise Moreno as Philip, take our transfer dealings to a new level! 😂.

It's being reported that Keita's agent travelled to Hong Kong to persuade / encourage liverpool to continue to bid for Keita!

Believable7 11Unbelievable

They're in Germany not Hong kong.

I think he meant when Klopp was reported to have met whith NK's agent while we were still in Hong Kong. Hoever if it is true or not I am not sure but I think that might be illegal if so. I am pretty sure the same agency also has Mane on their books though.

I can picture Keitas agent wandering around an empty training ground in Hong Kong today scratching his head at where everyone has gone 😂.

Ed02 already said this meeting may or may not have happened, which has gotten RBL peed off at NK's agent for stoking the fires with their player. This has led to the RBL CEO coming out (like John Henry did for Suarez) saying that his agents need to cut it out and that NK is not leaving. If the CEO had to come out and say that then for sure, Keita is not going anywhere. I think that should be the way we go with Couts even if he asks to leave. We should tell him that we need him for this season and that next season, he can go to Barca.

Mirror reporting Phil's asked for a move to Barcelona and asked to leave. Don't know if it's true I've just read it.

Any reports like this arw always crap. If a player " asks " to leave . im sure he loses his cut of the fees he would be entitled to. I remember ed saying its 5% of transfer fee. So a player asking to leave instead of forcing a move is financial stupidity.

If they hand in a transfer request they do, I think that's what Southampton are waiting for VVD to do.

It's likely true as Phil played well so as to impress Barcelona.
