A €60 million Liverpool transfer is finalized following Newcastle’s rejection and Manchester United’s error.It has been disclosed why Newcastle rejected a center-back whose contract includes a €60 million release clause and who is highly unlikely to join Manchester United; a deal is now in the works for confirmed admirers Liverpool.
So far this winter, Anfield has been devoid of activity, and TEAMtalk has been advised not to anticipate any late pyrotechnics. The Reds are content to utilize the personnel at their disposal for the remainder of the season.
Nevertheless, summer relocations are unavoidable, and a specific position may experience both incoming and outgoing individuals.
Although Liverpool are well-supplied at central defender, Joel Matip will become a free agent at the conclusion of the season due to an ACL injury.
In the summer, Matip will turn 33 years old, and Reds owners FSG will undoubtedly be hesitant to offer him a new contract after he recovers from significant knee surgery.
Liverpool must initiate the process of assembling a future replacement for both Matip and Virgil van Dijk, even if the latter remains. Additionally, the Dutchman will turn 33 this summer and will no longer be world-class indefinitely.Ibrahima Konate is firmly established elsewhere and will remain a permanent fixture on Merseyside. While Jarell Quansah is making excellent strides in his development, Joe Gomez is frequently called upon to fill in at right back in addition to full back.
Liverpool places a premium on acquiring a central defender.
Overall, it appears that Liverpool will need a new center-back, and Caught Offside reported in early January that acquiring a new defender is the club’s top priority for the upcoming summer.
Specifically, a left-footer might be targeted. Existing Liverpool options at the position do not all possess the left foot.
Portugal has been rife with reports regarding Liverpool’s admiration for Goncalo Inacio, a center-back for Sporting. It has been reported that Liverpool observers have closely monitored the 22-year-old international from Portugal this season.
In August, Inacio entered into a new contract with Sporting that bound him to Lisbon until 2027.Sporting has since disclosed that the player’s release clause, which was previously valued at €45 million, has increased to €60 million (equivalent to approximately £51.5 million).
A Portugal starter who could be a crucial cog in Liverpool’s defense for the greater part of the next decade is not asking for an exorbitant transfer fee.O Jogo of Portugal now reports that a transfer to Liverpool this summer is a possibility, which would be detrimental to Newcastle and Manchester United.
EUROPAPER DISCUSSION: Liverpool intensify their pursuit of the Shakhtar midfield phenomenon, but Manchester City is also on the prowl; Manchester United eye a commanding Leverkusen central defender.
Newcastle is omitted; Manchester United cannot meet a crucial demand?
According to the report, Newcastle considered acquiring Inacio during the summer of last year; however, the player declined the offer in favor of remaining with a club capable of contending for major championships.
Upon examining the standings, it becomes evident that Inacio made the correct judgment, as the Magpies have regressed this season and are presently positioned tenth.
A transfer to Old Trafford would also seem implausible in light of the Red Devils’ difficulties this season. Manchester United and Newcastle both ended their Champions League groups at the bottom and are currently 13 points behind Liverpool, who have also completed one fewer game, in the standings.Inacio’s best bet among the three appears to be a transfer to Liverpool, should he be determined to win significant accolades such as the EPL and UCL.
Regarding the potential timing of a transfer, O Jogo asserts that Sporting will make every effort to prevent a sale during the middle of the season. This may not significantly impact Liverpool, as the club has no intention of making any substantial acquisitions this month.
