The Salah conundrum
In recent weeks rumour has developed around Liverpool's pursuit to regain a little strength in the attacking line-up. Interestingly rumour says Liverpool are prepared to let Salah go for other players, possibly to give the attacking side of Liverpool a new lease of life on what has became slightly predictable. The rumoured deal consists of Paulo Debala of Juventus and £44M for Mohammed Salah, initially as a Liverpool fan I though no way! We need him then I started to think about the details. Paulo Dybala The 25 year old attacking midfielder for Juve has scored 5 goals in 5 appearance's in the Champions league! Although his recent struggles in the Italian league Series A leaves form questionable there is no doubt he is a footballing talent. Position and Strengths In recent games anyone watching the Liverpool games will tell you Salah is struggling to get time on the ball, teams are always preparing to stop him and he often is left alone on the right. I feel Dybala is stronger in the middle of the field, useful as an AMC differently that Mo Salah. Salah not satisfied? Another element not many have noticed is Salah looking dissatisfied, subdued celebrations etc. This is could just be down to being unhappy with his own performance or the delivery to him however it does leave causality to future outcomes. One thing is for sure with satisfaction, Mohammed Salah will not stay at Liverpool if they miss out on trophies again this year. Would you make the swap? Initially I would have said 100% no, with time to think I would 100% say yes, why? Salah doesn't look happy to me, Liverpool have became a little predictable through him and Liverpool need someone who is stronger in the centre of the field moving forward. Also I feel Dybala has room to grow in this Liverpool team, a fresh link with Firmino and Mane from the middle to forward. Let me know in the comments what you think Liverpool fans or not!
Transfer Today: Liverpool to complete world record move, Chelsea to lose keeper & Mourinho waits on star decision
A lot has been happening in the transfer market after the World Cup ended on 15th July. Most of the active clubs are from the Premier League as Liverpool, Manchester City, Chelsea, Arsenal & Man United all have already bought several players and are still chasing stars across Europe. Liverpool The Reds are closing in on a world record transfer for Alisson Becker as they have agreed on a deal worth £66m with AS Roma. The Brazilian who was also targeted by Chelsea decided to join his Brazil international team-mate Roberto Firmino at Anfield. Alisson is tipped as the best goalkeeper around after his impressive performances in the Champions League last season and the World Cup. Chelsea The Blues have just officialized the arrival of new manager Maurizio Sarri and he did not hesitate to deny reports that Hazard is on his way out as the Italian manager confirmed that a decision is yet to be taken for the mercurial no.10. However, Thibaut Courtois is surely going to sign for Real Madrid in a €35m deal as the Belgian keeper who won the Golden Glove at this World Cup in Russia expressed his desire to leave the club. Manchester United Mourinho is still chasing his transfer target of last season as Man United go again to sign World Cup surprise star Ivan Perisic. Mourinho has been impressed with his physical presence in the opponent box during this World Cup and wants just a player who can be as good as him if not him to play in his attack next season. Gareth Bale is also in his transfer list but Real Madrid could be cautious this summer after selling Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus for £110m.
