Hi Eds, do you think we'll dip into the January transfer market, I realize that Elliot will be back by Jan/ Feb but we still haven't replaced Gini and I still think we need another forward player/ Striker? Or do you think we'll wait for next summer?

{Ed002's Note - I am expecting Origi to leave for France or Belgium in January but many clubs try to avoid planning to buy in January as players are less likely to be available. It is possible but there needs to be a focus on next summer.}

Ed. 002

What sort of position could we be in next summer? You've mentioned the need to sell before we buy, we sold a bit (Shaq, etc. ) . You've stated that previous purchases need to be paid off (Jota, etc. ), perhaps they will be completed. You've said that C.V. has hit all clubs (Ticket and TV revenue), Now that we are back to full stadiums and presuming that we can have a whole season with fans. Do you expect the club to be in a better position to dip into the market or do you think we will still be struggling financially?

{Ed002's Note - The club will declare significant losses in February and whilst there will be more money about the club will need to sell if they wish to make significant purchases.}

Thank you. Presumably, "significant purchases" would require a Mane or such like to be sold first or a girth of peripheral players.

I'd really appreciate Salah staying 😅.

There’s no way we can sell salah! Just give the lad a new contract.

I don't think Salah will leave, Barcelona are broke, I think Madrid have other priorities, and then you've got Juve, Bayern, and PSG. PSG I feel is a retirement home so you've only really got Juve or Bayern to compete with.
Maybe the above is all nonsense but I just feel like he won't have many better options to us and will eventually sign a big fat contract.

No doubt a few fringe players like Origi will go soon and we'll see a pretty big signing join along with the emergence of youth players.

Agreed long. So in Jan we have no Salah, no Mane, no Origi and no Elliot. Makes it a little tricky.

Prior to C.V. we had no thiago, curtis or elliot playing. Due to the fluke injuries last year 2 got game time and now elliot. With those three why are people still going on about a gini replacement. They are the replacement. Start to get to grips with it. We have no money give the youth a chance.

I think I'd be happy if Keita goes, he should fetch 30m, possibly Firmino at maybe 45m, I think I may get hassle for that, if we can get Conan for 60m then maybe Mane for £80m. I really would like to avoid selling Mane but if needs must.

{Ed025's Note - conan for £60m?...thats barbaric wuger.. :)

Can’t see anyone paying 45m for Firmino. The only top level club I could see interested in a non scoring/ link type striker would be Atletico and they just re-signed Griezmann. 80m for Mane is a bit of a stretch too unless he’s back to top form from 2 years ago.

Mane won't be going anywhere anytime soon. And Keita most likely won't be either. Or Firmino.
Enjoy the fantasy though!

So Flash the red, as you can see the ed said we need to sell to buy so who would you sell?

Wuger, nobody. Enjoy the top quality players we have when we have them and stop wishing them away just so we can have a new shiny player to get excited about. Of course we need to replace them gradually so as we aren't left with 3 players up top in their mid 30s. No panic and as long as Klopp stays who knows who they plan to sign. The players everyone will be crying to sign in 2 years might be unknowns at the min.

Wuger, I’d rather keep Mane than sell him to buy Coman. He’s injury prone and doesn’t score anywhere near the amount that Mane does.

Are there many other players we could buy that are as perfèctly matched to our style and identity as Mane. And he scores and creates goals.

Hi Ed25, what's he likely to sell for?

If I identify as Mane they can sign me 🤪.

I won't bother answering at length Wuger, the guys have done a terrific job of summing it up for me.
Especially Kloppdog who just nailed it.

I do think Mane will leave next summer. Once Salah gets his bumper contract, I don't think the club will have the stomach to give Mane a huge contract as well. Also, he might be the only major saleable asset out of the players who have not signed new contracts (once Salah signs his) . Bobby i think will sign a contract extension on lower wages and we will bring in 2 new forwards to replace Mane, Origi and Minamino next summer.

Just because a player has signed a long term contract doesn’t mean the club won’t sell him or that the player won’t leave anyway. Getting players onto long term contracts is alsoa safeguard that the club will make money if they do let a player leave.
