Mixed Rodrygo transfer reports & Reds draw Inter in CL – Liverpool FC Roundup

Liverpool have another midweek game to prepare for, while the fans also need to juggle injury news, transfer rumours and a farcical Champions League draw-and-redraw.


Reds after Rodrygo, or maybe not

Take your pick which reports you prefer to believe! Liverpool were definitely keen to sign Rodrygo Goes before he initially left Brazil, but that deal was scuppered and he signed for Real Madrid.

Now we’re apparently hoping to land him once more, with Spanish outlet El Nacional saying over the weekend we were in talks with his agent over a potential move, as he’s only in and out of the Real front line while fellow Brazilian Vinicius Jr has absolutely exploded this term.

Notorious news-poacher Fabrizio Romano copied from someone else reported soon after though that the Spanish club have no plans to sell and that there were no negotiations going on.

There’s also a claim that a new deal is in the works instead, so at least the rumour might not do the rounds again in summer for months if so.
