Hi reds, just read Mo could be away to Madrid in Summer. When we sold Louis then Philip we gave clubs idea we are a selling club and if you don't take no for answer and turn players head finding gems like the three mentioned will be very very hard to replace and if we do replace them then how long would we keep them . A stand has to be made now by the club by putting massive buyout clauses like Spanish teams do or we stay a selling club and go no we're.

What good would buyout clauses do?

They are rarely met and players usually move for much less.

You mean the Egyptian FA guy? Cause it's likely that Real picked up the phone to someone they've never had any reason to speak to just to lay out their summer transfer plans? Sure, doesn't sound unlikely at all. This guy definitely isn't just trying to capitalise on the brief period of time where people care about the Egyptian FA at all by trying to make himself a media figure with exclusive information on clubs like Real.

{Ed002's Note - This is old news. I have previously explained that Salah had his agent approach Real Madrid about any interest in him as he had concerns he may miss the opportunity to move there. There have since been further meetings.}

We really need to be bringing through a strong core of youngsters who would die for the Liverpool shirt. Getting fed up of these new signings angling for a move.

Im assuming we have no intention of letting him go. It would be ridiculous selling or 2 best players in the same year.

{Ed002's Note - Right.}

Is klopp aware of these further meetings ed002? Honestly if it carries on id happily sell him in the summer. Who the hell does he think he is, looking for a move 6 months after joining the club.

{Ed002's Note - Whether Klopp is aware or not (I imagine he is) there is nothing wrong with his agent talking to Madrid.}

So he is off, coutihno part 2 only a lot quicker unfortunately.

{Ed002's Note - Who has said he is off. Posts like this are the reason it is best not to explain certain things.}

You can’t lock players down forever, the only thing you can do is make sure if they ever push to leave to the likes of Barcelona and RM, then they leave on your terms too (ie. you get paid enough and with plenty of time to arrange a suitable replacement and then some. ) In the long term we also need to win trophy’s otherwise we will always have this issue.

142mln for Coutinho vs 35mln for Salah and Mane coming in shows it’s not impossible to manage the situation, even if we have been exceptionally lucky with how well Salah in particular has worked out so far.

{Ed002's Note - I would ignore the finances.}

If he leaves bet we get gelson Martin's.

It seems certain Real will make an offer, and LFC may be faced with another player simply refusing to play in any useful way, as coutinho did.

If Salah simply cannot be persuaded to stay, and if his incredible form continues through the summer and the world cup, LFC should be looking for a Neymar level fee of between £150-200 million.

The rumoured £70m summer bid would be a derisory offer for a man who on current form is one of the top five attacking players in the world, and if Real do make such a low bid I believe LFC would be better to deny a move regardless of the player's threats not to play.

If they won't pay a fair price, and if he won't play, I would rather he rot on the sidelines and train alone, and pay his wages for a full season, than be cheated out of £100 million by a Spanish mega club.

Sell only if we absolutely have to, but please don't get swindled by Real. Do as Daniel Levy did with Bale, and screw every single penny out of them.

I would have thought it's fairly standard practice to scope out interest. at the very least it would allow his representatives to get him a substantially better deal with us. Given how short the lifespan of a football player is I cannot blame them for trying to maximise their position and finances. I also think the days of dying for the shirt are gone as the voice of fans have grown louder and their fickle and "turncoat" nature has become more apparent.

{Ed001's Note - I would not worry about it.}

Actually selling Coutinho may not hurt this situation. If he went for 142m and Salah has been stunning this season there is plenty of scope for setting a price that any club will struggle with. The days of saying a player isn’t for sale could be dead anyway since they can run down the contract and go for nothing. Any player is for sale if the price to the club and offer the the player is acceptable. If someone offered 250M for Salah and he wanted to go would it be the right thing to say no?

I actually know Mo personally and he is a different type of person to your normal footballer. I was introduced through my football circle as an investment consultant for overseas players which I have been doing for 5 yrs and we became close. He really is one of the best I've met and would think he would be loyal to LFC for at least a couple more years.

Ed I say he was off as his agent talking too Madrid at his requests I take it they aren't meeting too decide what they all can have for tea are they, they have meeting to basically get the ball rolling at the earliest possible stage.

{Ed002's Note - player’s representatives talk with clubs all of the time.}

I think the Phil saga showed that the club do not want to be seen as a selling club at all. But when a player's head is turned by the big dogs there is little we can do, the reality is that majority of players want to play at the highest level and we aren't able to offer that at the minute.
Very easy as Liverpool fans to think what a privilege and honour it is to play for our great club but for a kid from Brazil or Egypt Barcelona, real Madrid would surely be the dream?

Agree Ed, just trying to make the point that selling someone for a high price tag doesn’t that they’re irreplaceable - we have a more dangerous frontline than ever now.

Ed002 I may have misinterpreted what you said, but I have to disagree that there's "nothing wrong with his agent talking to madrid" under his instruction. Maybe technically/ legally there isn't a problem, but morally and professionally I think that's a poor showing.

{Ed002's Note - How would you expect player transfers to happen. Even Liverpool when acting professionally deal with agents on a day-by-day basis.}

I think the dream for every footballer is to become the best player they can, win the most they can and make the most they can. Barcelona and Madrid are just the easy route to all 3, nevermind that they go head to head every season. If Liverpool can prove themselves on the world stage for multiple reasons (and truthfully we are getting there with Klopp) then it will be accepted by players that we can give them everything they want. As is, we have to persuade the world's best we are the next move for them with the begrudging acceptance that they will inevitably look for a move to another, presumably better, club.

Test Real and ask for Asensio as part of the deal, bet they back off then if they do bid!

Calm down everyone, he's allowed to have his agent speak to other employers.

I'd wager many players of other clubs are doing the same thing with Liverpool as we speak.

Madrid are kind of on a downward spiral and I can’t see Klopp selling Salah until at least the end of NEXT season, and hopefully Madrid keep spiralling down so they aren't as much as an attractive proposition xD

There defense and midfield is still amazing but their attacking options are getting on a bit now and as proven this season, they are apparently human (Mainly Ronaldo) and are not performing to expextations.
He is 33 next month an by the end of the next season, 35. 😅
Bale kinda seems to have been done in a bit with his injuries but he’s still class, Benzema looks to be done too.

And, mainly, everybody seems to want to go to Barcelona instead of Madrid lately.

I could be completely wrong with this post like, heck Ronaldo will get his form back and then could prove he is inhuman again and continue at his top level until he's 40 😂.
