Quick question on finances Ed if you have time. The way transfers are structured I believe are normally over a number of payments. So for example when we bought both Alisson and VVD we would have paid some cash up front followed by the remaining amount over a number of years/ instalments. Does that mean that since we haven’t signed anybody of note for a few years since the two big ones that we are soon likely to free up some cash for future purchases? I do t mean this season I mean for example at the end of the VVD and Alisson payments?
Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - There is no money available - the club needs to sell to buy.}

Is that short term Ed, or will we always have to sell to buy, regardless if we win the PL or CL again.

{Ed002's Note - The owners are suffering far more than most and I suspect many clubs will suffer considerably next season as well.}

Obviously not going to happen, but for the sake of it what do you think Sadio Mane would cost your Barca/ Madrid’s now? I bet he’d be 170-200million easy.

{Ed002's Note - Around €120M is what I understand has been mentioned.}

27 Aug 2020 17:50:14
Ok so if we didn’t buy anybody for another three years we would still need to sell to buy?

27 Aug 2020 18:12:00
So a figure has actually been quoted already for Mane Ed? Bloody hell we could actually see a bid from Barcelona and loose Mane this window.

{Ed002's Note - The discussion is between Barcelona and his representives.}

27 Aug 2020 18:17:31
Wow thanks for the reply Ed, quite a lot less then. I suppose I rate him much higher through red tinted aviators.

27 Aug 2020 18:21:21
Ed002 so Mane is valued at less than Coutinho? I find that very hard to swallow.

{Ed002's Note - No the value of Coutinho is far, far less than Mane.}

27 Aug 2020 18:21:21
Yep Champs2020, if the model FSG use is till in place and has not flattened out.

27 Aug 2020 18:53:55
Mane is not going to be sold this year.

{Ed002's Note - This is why it is pointless to share anything on the Liverpool page. You all have no interest in what is actually happening.}

27 Aug 2020 19:58:57
One thing to remember folks, mane is 28 (as are our other front 2 i believe), their resale value will never be higher than this window. As much as it pains me to say it, if a huge offer comes in, the club will definitely consider it.

27 Aug 2020 19:59:20
€120 million isn't bad money and like it or not our front 3 can't go on forever.
With LFC being skint I can see to sense in selling Mane now and investing in someone maybe younger and elsewhere in the squad.
He's a great player, never put a foot wrong and I can see the attraction of one more big adventure before he is too old.
Let see what happens.

27 Aug 2020 19:47:24
Hey Edd02, I thought we no longer discussed money or things like this on these boards anymore, anyway?

27 Aug 2020 20:03:58
Forgive me if I've missed something. Does mane know his representatives are speaking to Barcelona? As you say money talks I guess but I can't see mane wanting to move but you never know. I don't think messi will end up moving in any case, although I'm not sure this will have any influence on the mane approach. For me he is our most important player. Apologies if this has already been covered. Thanks.

{Ed002's Note - They would not do it without there knowledge.}

27 Aug 2020 20:21:14
Thanks ed. Wow, not much we can do about it really. Not sure if it will happen or not but I hope not. I love mane and he would be a massive loss.

27 Aug 2020 21:14:11
I believe it when I see it.

27 Aug 2020 23:05:42
I'd hate to see Mane leave. He's my favorite player by miles, but the reality is that this is a business and if it makes sense from a business stand point and we can improve in the process, then I'd rather the club be ruthless than to hold onto assets (which players are) too long.

{Ed0666's Note - I don’t see how Mane leaving improves us Stone regardless of the money we receive.
