It’s going to happen.
Can my like be a "heart"?
I'm guessing you want sell our front 3 for Mbappe, that's the only way we can afford him
No not really, we would then also have to sell VVD, and Alisson - both of whom we would replace with two unknowns from the Championship so that we can afford to pay his contractual wages for the length of Mbappe's contract.
Unless Nike agree to pay for the player 100% and then they can split image rights with Mbappe leaving us to pay for the wages? Problem with that is that this brings Nike into the table with regard to player transfers and gives them some measure of power they probably shouldn't have. Sounds shady and murky but isn't this what happened with some other high profile players? Sponsors and shirt makers buying players for the club?
Not this shit again.
Can anyone explain why Nike would pay for Liverpool to buy Mbappe? It would never happen so why are we even talking about it?
Is it? Which ones?
Mbappe to us would be proof of the conspiVARcy to help us win.
Nah, we'll get him on a free transfer at 2022, and he will undergo proper training under Klopp for 2 more years while winning everything under the sun. He'll only be 23 at 2022, will hit his peak with us.
I am on the Salah for Mbappe train.
You lot are a bunch of fannies.
I thought addidas put some pressure to make the Pogba deal happen...but I accept I'm way off the mark, got to stop reading tier 50 articles lol
Mbappe wages will be no less than 500k if and when he leaves....none of our current players earn that, if he comes then it looks good on paper but then you risk destabilizing harmony as other players will want massive pay rises... VVD and Mane will think if he's getting 500k I want that as well? Are we really going to pay 3 players 1.5m a week in wages, I know we are rich but are we that rich?
I don't believe we'll be doing these "Galactico" type of signings. I think we'll continue to do more value for money type signings. Buying the right players, the players we actually need.
Klopp likes to improve the players he has. We've only bought players when he absolutely thinks we need improving in certain positions.
In other cases he's looked at what he had, determined if they can improve, kept some and let some go. For instance, Henderson, Gomez, Lovren, Firmino, Lallana etc. Also Klopp wants to give the likes of Jones, Elliott etc a chance.
Of course managers only sign players when they desperately need them, the difference is Klopp is patient and instils belief in the players that are available to him first.
He didn't do a complete revamp when he joined, it took us 3-4 transfer windows to get to where we're at. Improving slightly every season.
Yep. I think he would have been the perfect Klopp signing if we had managed to grab him before he made his first big move from what I think was Monaco. Big layout for a player that Klopp knows will suit our system and that will flourish and grow with us.
Mind you, 75mill for a CB was big bucks. Ish.
Exactly and that's why we're currently looking at players like Havertz and Werner. Signing Ox from Arsenal was somewhat of an anomaly to his or the club's methods but he wanted to leave.
And sometimes there just happens to be a need at the club and a player such as Ox comes along who can fill that role there and then.
I like the way the club and Klopp do business. It may require patience, but just look at the rewards.
This is the reason i don't see Mbappe coming here, as fabulous as that would be football-wise. His wages would be so ridiculous it would completely screw up our wage structure.
Less important but annoying is that he's already made it clear he wants to someday play for Real, so he'd be coming here for a couple / few years then make his dream move.
As fascinating as it sounds to have him here, i rather continue operating the way we have been since Klopp got here. Results have been historically good.
Stop this negative crap.
You can’t put a £ value on Klopp Hugs - wee Killian will forgo much of his current massive salary in order to have access to a constant flow of Klopp Hugs.
Besides - when the Kop are singing his name to the tune of Mmmmbop.... and he’s winning the Premier League, Champions League, Golden Boot and FIFA player of the year year in, year out and has a statue outside Anfield.... he’ll have long since stopped caring what he’s paid.
By which point, Blue Fumers will be accusing us of using shape-shifting aliens with superpowers pretending to be human, in order to unfairly win things.
Is there any team that could afford his transfer fee and wages without either going bankrupt or running afoul of the FFP rules?
