Liverpool FC have made an offer to sign a star defender. The player wages are rumoured to be around £280,000 a week. Liverpool wants to reinforce their defense for the long term with this signing.
The Reds transfer window has started in a full flow.
They have almost completed the signing of Darwin Nunez as a long-term replacement for Sadio Mane. With that being said, Sadio Mane’s move to FC Bayern will also very soon be official.
Liverpool FC wants to build a team for the future. And that’s why they signed Ibrahim Konate last summer.
But the Reds are looking to make an offer to make their defense stronger than ever.
Liverpool made an Offer to sign De Ligt
According to Corriere Dello Sport, Liverpool have made a move to sign Matthijs De Ligt. The young dutch defender is on the list of many top European clubs.
The 22-year-old defender’s current deal with the Old Lady includes a 125-million-euro release clause. The clause will increase to 140-million-euro next year.
The Serie A heavyweights want to reach an agreement on a new contract with a lower exit clause of 70-80 million euros. The representatives of the Dutch superstar, on the other hand, want the clause to be completely deleted.
According to CDS, Premier League clubs want to sign the former Ajax captain. And therefore, the situation in Italy could alter if a massive offer is made.
Moreover, In terms of Liverpool, it’s been stated that Klopp’s crazy notion is to have Van Dijk and De Ligt form an all-Dutch central defensive pairing at Anfield.
Manchester United’s interest comes directly from their new manager, Erik ten Hag, according to a reputable Italian news source. But the player will not move to Old Trafford owing to a lack of Champions League football.
De Ligt’s current contract with Bianconeri runs out in the summer of 2024. And he earns a whopping £280,000 each week (Goal.com).
Liverpool shelled the cash to sign Ibrahima Konate from Leipzig last year. And moreover, the French center-back was a standout performer for us under Klopp.
We don’t need to add another central defender this summer because we already have Matip, Gomez, and Van Dijk. What are your thoughts?
