Liverpool have been given permission to make a record signing, with the Reds’ No.1 target issuing a ‘come get me’ plea.
Liverpool are poised to break their transfer record, having been given permission by the player himself for a €90 million deal.
The Reds’ record acquisition is still club captain Virgil van Dijk, who joined from Southampton in January 2018 for about £75 million. Darwin Nunez cost somewhat less when he joined from Benfica in the summer of 2022.
If rumours are to be believed, Jurgen Klopp was willing to sign a record signing twice this year – once when Jude Bellingham was in the crosshairs and seemed certain to cost nine figures, and again when the Merseysiders agreed a £111m deal with Brighton for Moises Caicedo.
According to BILD, Bayern Munich is willing to trade Leroy Sane for £80 million if Liverpool makes a proposal for the superstar speedster.
With the possibility of losing Mohamed Salah in the future, Sane is considered as the ideal successor, having begun the season strongly in the Bundesliga. With Saudi Arabia’s Pro League asking a nine-figure fee for Salah late in the summer transfer season, affording Sane for half of what they might sell a 31-year-old Salah for shouldn’t be an issue.
