  1. 100 mil. Over 5 years that is 20 a year. 400g a week. You give him a big contract he can sit on it and take 50 mil sign on in 5 years and bigger wages. Injuries their risk.

  2. Darwin is the NEXT evolutionary step of the LFC team that Jurgen Klopp has been building. THE RE-BUILD HAS BEEN ON SINCE JOTA SIGNED. The midfield needs rejuvenation. A goal scoring CM and a DM to cover Fabinho. Bellingham would fit.Cavalho is another piece of the evolution. Klopp has to consider Salah finishing his contract and going on a free. Other squad players will be moved on generating money to acquire two other signings . You cannot 'stick' in the poker game of PL football, Man City, Spurs, Chelsea, Arsenal and Man U are ALL going to upgrade their squads looking to challenge for the title. Liverpool need to be ruthless in re-vamping the Squad to maintain our high standard. Look for a good pre-season and to hit the ground running with 10 wins right out the box. YNWA In Klopp we trust. KEEP THE FAITH.

  3. Liverpool want to keep a control of their wage structure. Nunes reportedly getting 98k per week at liverpool. Mane i suspect will be getting about 300k per week if not more at bayern. Its getting very complicated balancing transfer fees and wages in football considering the player/agent power these days. This is the way liverpool choose to do it. Whether they get it right only time eill tell.

  4. Liverpool have just taken almost maximum money available by making all 3 finals and not only that. The owners don't spend every window so it builds up. Liverpool are richer than people like to believe, Mane going onto £300,000 a week at the club would likely cause issues within the squad so thank him for his services and replace him. Every player has to leave eventually. £98k a week for Darwin on a 6 year deal is real negotiating!

  5. I don’t think it is no money to pay mane and salah’s wages. It is because they are both 30 and if we offer them what they are asking then the owner feels that it is not value for money paying them that much until their mid 30s. It will be good decision to sell one and bring in Nunez who is only 22. If we offer both mane and Salah new contract then both will leave at the same time and we will need to bring in 2 world stars to replace them then we will need to spend even more money.
