Morning Ed002

I can't see it answered anywere and most of the posts seem to be taken down, hence the reason me asking again. Have we actually now made a bid for Keita?

Yes I have read all the posts and I am aware what you have explained regarding RBL stance on the player.

Thanks in advance.

{Ed002's Note - There has been a bid that was rejected a few days ago and RBL re-iterated their position. There has certainly been no acceptance of a bid. So there is nothing new.}

I do firmly believe we will get our man. Money talks in football and if a club is offered £60-£70 million for a player who has had his head turned and no longer wants to be at the club then they will accept. It just may drag on for a while. Same with VVD!

Everyone has a price, even Coutinho is saleable. The question is whether LFC have that kind of money.

Thank you for the reply ed. It is new to me mate as I was not aware we had actually put a bid in. Do you think a deal can/ will be reached or are we wasting our time? Especially as it doesn't seem like the player is bothered about leaving at this time.

{Ed002's Note - That I can't answer. RBL has made it clear that they do not wish to sell the player. If Liverpool were to make an offer that they might find acceptable that position could of course change. But stories of the clubs having agreed the deal and the player waiting for a plane to Liverpool to have his medical are wide of the mark.}

I do admire your insight Eds, the fact you do this for free and that some of our fans are not exactly polite.
So thank you.

Cheers Ed,
I'm hooked on this website, so thank you.

Do you know how much ish the bid was for?

{Ed002's Note - We are not going get in to money.}

Note : The player is bothered and wants the move . Even willing to lose a loyalty bonus to make it happen . He is also with agent due a second meeting to request the move can made . True the club don't want to sell but this one is not just about the money although €65 million won't quite do it . still lots to do but this transfer has started to become more positive for LFC.

A fee has been agreed and will be announced in 9 days. I'm not in the know, I just trust the person that posted it up.

What we need to concentrate on doing is unearthing these little gems before they become so valuable. time and time again a club buys a player for peanuts then 2 seasons later we pay massive amounts. obviously the 8.5 million layout on coutinho will reap massive profit if we sell but if u look through most of the rest of the team I'm sure they were available for a lot less previously.

So I guess we will return with an improved bid, or at least I would of thought ed.

Ed I know you don't like speaking about money as it really only confuses people but do you believe this bid a few days ago was anywhere near Leipzig's valuation of the player or did we once again simply put in another derisory bid as was the case in our pursuit of Koulibaly?

{Ed002's Note - I really don't know that Leipzig has a valuation of a player that they have repeatedly siad they do not wish to sell.}

Said it from the off, the deal won't happen. RBL are been stubourn, we are also Stubborn we won't be paying too much for him and at the moment the price to land him looks like it could become a rediculous one. We won't pay it. The past few weeks even discussing it, in my opinion is pointless.

I'd like to see him sign don't get me wrong but we have to be realistic.

It will happen. Be positive for now :)

Teabag. I do agree to an extent. It does seem we are wasting our time again but we must beleive a deal can be reached else why waste so much time on it when we could chase other players. It really does seem like its him or no one now to me.

everything the Ed's are saying about Keita was said about Salah. like, the club says they don't want to sell and so on and on. Salah is now wearing no 11 shirt. its not Klopp and Co sends a list of players they want to the Ed's.

{Ed001's Note - don't lie. I was very plain that Salah wanted the move and I expected it to go through. The stumbling block was Roma investigating an illegal approach.}

Is it true that there are some people in RBL that don't agree with the sporting directors stance to not sell? Seems like there stance may slightly changing within RBL if true, but i suppose if a offer is big enough any club would sell.

Thanks for the info eds, very much appreciated.

{Ed002's Note - Have you been playing on Twitter?}

I get the impression that the EDDS would like us not to sign KEITA, if you've followed football as long as I have you will realise if the offer is right anyone can be bought, nearly every team is a selling club and I include REAL MADRID and MAN UNITED.
