Alexis Mac Allister has apparently decided to wait until the conclusion of the Premier League season before making a choice despite Liverpool and Brighton having struck an agreement on a £53 million deal for him.
According to Tuttomercatoweb, Mac Allister would want to leave The Amex for a team that could guarantee him Champions League eligibility in 2023/24.
Liverpool to stumble on the road of Mac Allister transfer?
Liverpool may soon be able to satisfy his demands thanks to a run of six straight victories, but Jurgen Klopp’s team still needs other outcomes to go their way if they want to sneak past arch-rivals Manchester United and into the top four.
On Thursday, Erik ten Hag’s team suffered a defeat against Brighton thanks to Mac Allister’s stunning stoppage-time penalty. However, United simply needs four victories out of their remaining five to displace Liverpool and earn a spot in the Champions League.
A verbal agreement in place?
According to sources, a verbal agreement has been reached between Liverpool and Brighton to pay £53 million for one of the Premier League’s most complete midfielders. However, the Argentine won’t commit to Anfield until the Reds learn whether they will compete in the Champions League or the Europa League next season.
Mac Allister is also well-liked by Manchester United. However, United’s summer preparations are currently on hold since the Glazers are taking their time with a takeover that should have been finished weeks ago.
Danny Murphy, a former fan favorite at Anfield, isn’t sure whether Mac Allister is exactly what Liverpool “needs.” Even though worries about the Argentine’s “legs” seem a little odd, especially considering the part he plays in Brighton’s all-action team led by Roberto de Zerbi.
The broader conversation is only getting started. However, Alexis will most likely already be playing for another squad by July. Knowing which one it is, will only take a little while to know about it.
