‘Major boost’ in Sarr chase & Mbappe rumours to go on another year – Liverpool FC Roundup

Liverpool’s rumours have dried up somewhat in the last few days – maybe the media have cottoned on to the fact we won’t buy until we sell this year!


£40m Sarr incoming!!!! Honest

Might as well start with the marginally more believable story, though not by much unless matters change at Anfield.

We’ve already heard that no forward additions are likely unless both Origi and Shaqiri leave, and neither one have done so far – but a report from TMW says Ismaila Sarr has told Watford he wants to leave.

The dubious timing comes just after he scored to help them win against Aston Villa on the opening weekend, but anyway, he’s a long-standing target of Liverpool’s and apparently we’re still keen on a £40 million bid.

Apparently this gives us a “major boost” ahead of the transfer window closing. Swell!


No Mbappe sale this summer

Real Madrid have been even more heavily linked with Kylian Mbappe than ever since Leo Messi joined PSG, amid rumours the French forward wasn’t happy about it.

But Mundo Deportivo say there’s no chance of a sale this summer as PSG are banking on a year of real progress to convince Mbappe that his long term future lies at the Parc des Princes.

That only means one thing, as far as Kopites are concerned: 12 more months of rumours going back and forth suggesting Klopp is calling Mbappe, Liverpool have the perfect project, and all the rest.

Free transfer is it? How big do you reckon the staff room sofa would need to be to find enough loose change for £800,000 a week…
