Liverpool are likely to break their transfer record for AS Roma attacker Mohammed Salah.
The sporting director of the Italian side Monchi confirmed the interest from the Merseyside club. Roma are hoping to get more £35 million for the player. The director admitted that the player could join Anfield this summer even though talks have been stalled over the transfer price for the 24-year old star.
Jurgen Klopp wants Salah to join the team ahead of the pre-season training in early July. He wants the new player in his attacking team as he searches for a top defender to help with the woes of last term.
“For Salah, there is an offer from an English club but the price will be set by Roma, not the buyers. As I’ve said before, Roma is not a supermarket. Roma is a team that will represent Italy in Europe. We came second in Serie A and out idea is to keep as good a team as possible,” Monchi claimed. ...continue reading LIVERPOOL TO BREAK RECORD FOR SALAH
Jurgen Klopp has opened up on the future of defender Mamadou Sakho, and he says that he does not want to be drawn on conclusions just yet.
The former Paris St Germain defender fell out of favour withKlopp in the summer. After having just played a key role in the club’s revival last season, he did not feature in the first half of the season. Sakho was frozen out of the action, but Klopp finally provided him with the escape option. The defender was allowed to leave the club on a loan deal until the end of the campaign, and Crystal Palace took full advantage of his presence.
Sam Allardyce was able to bring in Sakho on a loan deal until the end of the season, and this transfer has worked like a charm for the London outfit. After struggling with a relegation throughout the campaign, Crystal Palace have been able to secure four wins in the last five league matches – including a 3-0 win over Arsenal and a 2-1 win over Chelsea. ...continue reading Klopp Refuses to Be Drawn into Questions about Mamadou Sakho
It’s been a little over a year since JurgenKlopp has taken over Liverpool as the head coach of the Premier League club and so far it has been a remarkable period of time as the German manager has managed to push Liverpool to the finals of the UEFA Europa League and of the Capital One Cup as well, all of which was accomplished during his first year in charge of Liverpool which is impressive to say the least.
The German coach mostly seems to have done work with the squad that he had available since taking charge of the club, neither Klopp nor Liverpool are big cash spenders and he has been mostly relying on the players that he had at his disposal and so far it has been a success as they have been playing significantly better than before.
Even though he has not made a big splash in the transfer market, JurgenKlopp has recently talked about his guidelines when it comes to signing new players as he said:

With all the football clubs busy making the most of the transfer window, Liverpool is no different.
They are looking at Jonas Hector, who is a defender of the Koln team. It seems that he would be available for a fraction of the original asking price. Hector was said to be moving to Anfield and newspapers quoted that he was looking for a price tag of £25million. There were reports of interests being generated by the player by teams like Barcelona and Tottenham who are Premier League rival for Liverpool. It was reported that the offers were for £15m. Barca unveiled that they would be taking up Lucas Digne, who would be joining their camp from the Paris Saint Germain team
. The Spurs team seems to have locked down on Danny Rose. Hence Liverpool is now in a position to sign up Jonas Hector. The Reds have more good news as the offer would probably be for £17million which would be good enough for the player to be willing to join up.

Louis van Gaal claimed that his team were lucky to get a 1-0 win over Everton on Sunday.
Manchester United kept themselves in contention for a top four place by remaining within a point of fourth placed Manchester City as a result of this win. City had put a lot of pressure on United after getting a comfortable 4-0 away victory against Bournemouth on Saturday. Since United were playing a day later, there was a lot of onus on them to keep up with City. Even though United achieved this, Van Gaal says that the result could have been a lot different.
Anthony Martial scored the only goal of the game, as both teams failed to create many chances during the game. In fact, this goal scored by United was from their only shot on target. Everton also had a similarly poor performance on the attacking front despite starting with inform striker Romelu Lukaku. The Belgian international has been linked with United in recent weeks and he has scored 25 goals for the Merseyside club in all competitions. Van Gaal has been under pressure throughout the campaign, but he may sense an opportunity to sneak into the top four. ...continue reading Louis van Gaal feels Team to be Lucky over Everton Win
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp has revealed that he was one of the first choices for Manchester United to replace Sir Alex Ferguson.
The former Borussia Dortmund manager has revealed that Ferguson took special interest in talking withKlopp about the possibility of taking over at United in 2013. SinceKlopp turned down the job quite quickly, United turned their attention towards other alternatives. In the end, David Moyes was appointed as the replacement for Ferguson and this move proved disastrous for all parties concerned. Moyes was sacked after less than 12 months in charge of the job.
Klopp was one of the sought-after manager in 2013 after having lead Borussia Dortmund to a Champions League final. Few would have imagined that such an achievement was possible in this day and age given the vast differences in finances between a club like Dortmund and the top guns like Barcelona and Real Madrid.

It is believed that these qualities were enough to convince Ferguson thatKlopp was right choice.Klopp, though, revealed that he had to turn down the offer because he was committed with Dortmund. ...continue reading Jurgen Klopp has revealed that he was one of the first choices for Manchester United
Brendan Rodgers has promised that Liverpool will be challenging for the title next season after failing to hit the heights of last season. Liverpool narrowly missed out on the league title for the first time in their history, as they finished only a couple of points behind Manchester City.
They were expected to build on this success, but the club are struggling to even finish in a top four place. This has largely been because of several restructuring in the squad after the exit of Luis Suarez. The club spent more than € 100 million on several new players, but most of them have failed to settle so far.
The club is showing signs of recovering with Rodgers using a different formation in the last few matches. Liverpool are unbeaten in all competitions since the 3-0 defeat against Manchester United in the middle of December. Raheem Sterling has been at the centre of this revival. ...continue reading Brendan Rodgers confident of Club to get back in Next Season
