Liverpool Set To Make Improved €34m Bid For Man Utd Target
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has sanctioned an improved €34million bid for Manchester United and Juventus target Alexis Sanchez, according to reports.
As we approach the opening of the summer window clubs will be intensifying their efforts in the transfer market so we’ll bring you all the latest news and gossip. Today, Liverpool are ready to move for Alexis Sanchez.
Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has sanctioned an improved €34m bid for Manchester United and Juventus target Alexis Sanchez, according to reports.
The Reds have been strongly linked with Sanchez in recent months but appeared to cool their interest after seeing an opening €22.5m offer rejected by Barcelona.
Manchester United have also been touted as potential suitors after it emerged that new Barca boss Luis Enrique was willing to listen to offers for the 25-year-old, and Louis van Gaal had supposedly put Sanchez down as a possible summer target as he looks to revamp his Old Trafford squad.
The Premier League duo then looked set to miss out as reports last week suggested that Juventus were closing in on the attackers signature after coach Antonio Conte held talks with the player about a move back to Italy.
However, with no deal with Juventus agreed as yet, it appears Liverpool are ready to step up their interest with the Daily Star claiming that Rodgers is determined to lure the Chilean international to Anfield and has given the green light to submitting an improved €34m (£27m) offer.
It remains to be seen whether that will meet Barcelona’s asking price or how the likes of Juve or Man Utd will respond should Liverpool table their renewed bid, but Reds fans will be buzzing by the thought of Sanchez moving to the club.
The player is currently away at the World Cup and kicked off the tournament with a goal and a superb display during Chile’s 3-1 win over Australia on Friday night, so the longer his future remains up in the air the more chance there is of other clubs entering the chase for his signature.
His purchase price will also continue to increase the better he plays in Brazil and he may even convince Barcelona to keep hold of him. Many are already confussed as to why the Catalans are willing to sell him in the first place, as 44 goals in 119 appearances can hardly be considered a disappointing return for a player who hasn’t always been a first team regular.
But one thing is for sure, whoever Sanchez is lining-up for will have one of the most exciting attacking midfielders in Europe within their ranks and I’d personally love to see him ply his trade in the Premier League next season. Will that happen? Only time will tell….
