Liverpool to cash in on Federico Valverde

Federico Valverde

Liverpool tipped to complete shock Real Madrid raid for Federico Valverde as Jurgen Klopp makes board request

Klopp ‘obsessed’ about landing Federico Valverde
It is Klopp in particular who is thought to be pushing for the transfer. He is ‘obsessed’ about signing the Uruguayan and is willing to wait for a Real exit to come about.

Klopp wants the Liverpool board to ‘pay whatever it takes’ to land Valverde. This could result in the club breaking their often stringent transfer rules.

Federico Valverde is a regular in the Real starting eleven. He made 46 appearances last term, helping Los Blancos to win both La Liga and the Champions League.

However, the 24-year-old has recently had to play out of position. Carlo Ancelotti likes to use him at right wing, even though he is usually a central midfielder.

And the report claims Valverde has a troublesome relationship with his manager at the Bernabeu. It’s unclear if this has anything to do with the positional changes. But it does mean Liverpool have a decent chance at signing the player.

There is no mention in the report of how much the 42-cap international would cost.

transfermarkt value him at £63m, while Real only paid £4.5m for him back in summer 2016. Due to this, the Spanish giants will likely make a huge profit if Valverde went to Merseyside.

While Federico Valverde would be a top signing for Liverpool, this is a dubious link. Nacional are unlikely to get many exclusives on the Reds, so it’s unclear how they would have gotten this much information on Klopp’s desires.

It wouldn’t be a surprise if Pearce came in with another update, this time playing down the Valverde to Liverpool rumours

Even if the link is true, then it would be advisable for Liverpool to go after Bellingham instead. He is younger than Valverde, has a higher ceiling and already has a great relationship with some Liverpool players due to being in the England setup.
