Reporter Kim Min-cheol= As it turns out, Liverpool signed a player they gave up on early.
“Liverpool were not willing to spend more than £40 million (approx. KRW 660 million) to sign Mason Mount, so he headed to Manchester United,” global media outlet The Athletic reported on July 15 (KST).
Mount has been one of the most sought-after players in the transfer market this summer. He was rumored to be in contract talks with Chelsea shortly after the end of last season.
A move was expected to happen this summer. Chelsea are set to sell Mount, whose contract expires in 2024, this summer to cash in on a transfer fee.
Liverpool were initially touted as a possible destination. The Reds saw Mount as an ideal replacement for James Milner, Oxlade-Chamberlain, and Naby Keita.소닉카지노
Despite the lush transfer speculation, no concrete deal has been reached. Rather, it was the late-comers who took the initiative, with the Red Devils eventually signing Mount in July for a fee of £60 million.
Liverpool hasn’t dropped out of the race, however, as reports suggest that the Reds don’t value Mount above £40 million.
The Reds didn’t skimp on other midfield signings. The Reds have successfully bolstered their midfield with the signings of Alexis Sigurdsson, Dominik Sobosler, and Endo Wataru.
If results are anything to go by, the Reds have not been wrong. Mount hasn’t lived up to his £60 million price tag at United. His injury has ruled him out for the foreseeable future.
