I've searched for this but can't see anything. I've just heard now that Leipzig have slapped €80m on keita. Anything on this eds?

Looks like Liverpool are being made to spend big for their stupid mistake.

{Ed002's Note - They don't need the money and don't want to sell. Hence a figure that would be too good to turn down.}

Is he worth that? No.
Do RBL want to sell? No.
Does Keita want to leave? No.
Have the eds said we sustain an interest? No.

Leave it now.

25 Jun 2017 22:27:52
80m euro is really not that much, when you consider a 70m price tag for VVD.

25 Jun 2017 22:58:45
Yes they have.

25 Jun 2017 23:03:07
And now they have quoted a price of 80 mil euros for him indicating he could be sold which is good news.

I don't know why everybody don't want a player for it cost. This transfer window is very important because we are already very strong and we just need to reinforce our weaknesses (lb cb cm rw) and if we have the money we should pay what it is needed because if we sign all the players we need apart from having a quality squad depth and being ready for all the competition we play I'm sure we will be able to win the league and start our hegemony in this premier league era.
Just 190m more to start our era (vandijk 70m keita 80m mendy 40m)
I know it won't happen but I have hope that we are really close to be successful again.

26 Jun 2017 08:04:29
At the end of the day, It's not our money, Why are the fans worrying about transfer fees haha.

26 Jun 2017 08:44:22
The price doesn't matter, it's all relative.
Alun Evans cost us £100,000 from Wolves in 1968.

Eyewateringly ridiculous amounts of money being thrown around, we thought, back then.

Can you imagine what the prices will be i ten years time?
One day a club will pay £1 Billion for a player.

26 Jun 2017 08:50:24
Whether it is my money or not is a false argument and a non-entity. I don't want my club spending ridiculous sums of money on players who are simply not worth it. Keita has only had one season in a top league in Europe and a 70m fee for such a player regardless of his talent which Keita is indeed talented, is a risk that FSG won't sanction and I support them on that front.

The fact is that Keita is no 50m player and this is coming from someone who has seen him play lots of times. He is very good but is definitely NOT 50m or 70m pound good. Even Mbappe is no 100m player.

RBL don't want to sell. Player does not want to leave and RBL don't need the money. Take a hint, genius! If a girl is sending you these types of signals during courtship and you can't figure it out then I fear for you. Keita nor RBL are just not that into you. Move on and stop being a stage 9 clinger.

26 Jun 2017 08:54:35
Guess the question is, do we got out and lash big money on one of the brightest centre midfield talents in Europe or do we lash big money (but considerably less) out on someone who isn't a centre midfielder and is nowhere near as good as the primary target. Because the second option is largely what we've been doing for the last 20 years or so and part of the reason we've always fallen short.

26 Jun 2017 09:06:31
The €80mio was a pricetag that the "Bild" in Germany reported on. The Bild in Germany is like the Sun in England.

26 Jun 2017 09:09:52
There is no guarantee that Naby Keita will cut it in the EPL and for 80m it is not worth the risk. We have plenty of quality MF's. Gini, Hendo, Lallana, Can and it looks like Coutinho will be taking an MF role as well next season so for 80M euros I would forget it.

26 Jun 2017 10:23:30
I jaye mancs no doubt about that but what madinho said last year is true. no sense of Money these days.

26 Jun 2017 10:41:32
Fairenough Brussels, but money in football is mad. Is anybody worth 50m or 100k+ a week to live football? No. But that's how it is.

You have to take The massive figures being thrown with a pinch of salt ha. It's how the game is now. id rather Liverpool bought the brightest players out there.

Regarding rbl not wanting to sell, Everybody has a price. Clearly you ain't that good at courting 👍🏼
Fsg were going to sanction a mega deal for VVD, why wouldn't they do it for a younger player who bossed the German league?

Everybody has opinions and I respect that. But I want my club to sign the best players out there, regardless of the fees.

26 Jun 2017 13:32:35
Can someone tell me what type of midfielder he is please and who he is similar to. i've never seen him play, is he box to box, deep lying playmaker, dm or what. thanks in advance.

26 Jun 2017 13:56:19
Why would RBL suddenly slap this price tag on him, if he has no wish to leave?

Also he can leave for less next summer, due to his release clause, apparently.

This may run on an on, but this move by RBL suggests he may well be leaving this summer.

Is he worth it? Hard to tell. The transfer fees have suddenly gapped up by a huge margin this summer: last year's 40 million seems to be this year's 70 million.

{Ed002's Note - Any release clause is of NO RELEVANCE TO LIVERPOOL whatsoever.}

i think this rumour was started by an Italian journalist of dubious reputation. I think Naby Keita would fit the role Klopp had earmarked for Coutinho next season. No way would either of them want to sit and watch the other play most of the big games. In theory NB could come in and Couts go but I cannot see this happening and certainly hope it isn´t happening. All will be revealed in a few weeks and we have a CL qualifier in mid August, barely 7 weeks away, so have to have things done and dusted by then.

26 Jun 2017 15:29:35
I think we have a good chance of landing kieta. I would expect the fee to be closer to 40 mil than 70/ 80. I'd be a much happier fan when we sort out our defensive problems ie cb lb. Anything other than that is bonus as we have one of the most creative and deadly attacks in the world.

26 Jun 2017 15:43:26
Raphael Honigstein which to my knowledge is one of the most trustworthy sources in Germany, has said the he wants to leave and is available, but the price remains the same as they do not need nor want to sell.

26 Jun 2017 16:53:50
The German journalist is highly regarded so I take him at his word. Now, RBL don't need to sell so they are happy with taking us to the cleaners for a player who is like it or not, unproven in Europe and has had only one good season in Germany. Those are the facts. Now if we want to pay for such a talented player then we should pay what we think he is worth and that is 50m (even tho that is too high, IMO but I'll bite) . I know the TW is crazy with crazy money being thrown around but that does not mean we should do the same. I was for Salah coming for 35m to 40m cos he is proven and more proven than Keita is so how can people explain that we should pay 70m for a player who is less proven than Salah? This is just a simple and logical question. H will be a big risk, even bigger than Pogba who was and is proven before he got signed for 89m. That's my beef.

{Ed002's Note - It is nothing to do with Pogba. Did you obsess about comparing in the showers at school?}

26 Jun 2017 20:02:48
What is 'the sun' you talk about, never heard of it?

{Ed025's Note - its a big yellow round ball in the sky.. :)

26 Jun 2017 20:47:19
£70m for VVD and £70m for Keita. Liverpool are going to break all kinds of transfer records as well as probably having the highest wage bill in Europe.

It is ok though, not the fans money even if LFC cannot actually afford that kind of expenditure :-)

26 Jun 2017 22:10:14
If it's the right player we should pay the money. How many were saying the money we spent on mane and wanjama (spelling) in particular was way over the top last year!

26 Jun 2017 22:37:45
Fans have a short memory when the club was on the verge of bankruptcy. H and G borrowed money left right and centre from the banks to keep the club running when the club could not afford it.

There is much more money in football now but that does not mean LFC can sustain a transfer window of £200m plus mountains of wages.

The club is taking on debt under FSG. Luckily not through the banks :-) LFC's debt continues to grow, FSG fit the bill. Not a very healthy situation to be in, for FSG or the LFC.
