Is he the new Steve Nicol?

He can play left back and right back, and his natural position is CM. So closer to the new James Milner maybe.

What’s that all about mate?

It's in the German newspaper Bild. De Ligt has come out and said he has one option that's better than the others. It's probably Barcelona in all honesty but he did an interview with De Jong a couple of years ago and was asked where he dreamt of playing and he said the Premier League. Bild are basically saying is this Klopp's next trophy?

Cheers.

 

I’m gonna say this now so it doesn’t sound like sour grapes when he signs for whoever it is, but he seems like a bit of a whopper with all these contrived whispers and titbits he keeps doling out about his next destination.

 

What is he, Antoine Griezmann and The Koptalk Slug’s love-child? If he does go to United he’ll suit Pogba down to the ground with such modern attention-seeking mingery.

Can't remember if I posted this the other day but this quote from John Henry before the final got my senses tingling. I've got a feeling we have someone lined up and will pull a Fabinho soon.


 

Quote

 

"We’ll be set on winning next year. We’re going to have a go, and we’re strong already.

 

"Every year—we haven’t gone through that process yet, because we’re still playing—but every year we’ve shown we’re willing to invest in the right kind of player and do it the right way so the club is sustainable."

Only problem with De Ligt is that cunt Mino Raiola is his agent. I think he's got a ban as well (the agent, not De Ligt) so not sure if that will slow things up with regard to his next move.

Liverpool have been linked with a move for Matthijs de Ligt as the Ajax defender revealed that he has “one option” that is “better” than the others.

The Netherlands international has not only been linked with a move to Old Trafford but also heavily with Barcelona, who are still the favourites to sign the centre-back.

And De Ligt has now claimed that he has “several options” on the table with “one option” the most logical.

“I am very excited about what could happen in the near future. I am also trying to stay calm, though,” De Ligt told RTL4.

“I view this as a challenge — that is the most important thing.

“There are several options and I really want to pick the best one. Logically, one option is better than another.

“Life abroad could be difficult, but I am still an ordinary Dutch guy, I am no different to the others. Perhaps living abroad will be more intense for me.”

In other reports on Tuesday, German newspaper Bild have suggested that Liverpool may sign De Ligt following their Champions League success.

The report says that a deal for De Ligt would be Jurgen Klopp‘s ‘next triumph’ after leading them to a 2-0 victory over Tottenham in Madrid on Saturday

If De Ligt comes to us he’d be great.  If he goes anywhere else he will be shite.  I’m not joking either.  If he can’t see it himself then more fool him.  We won’t be going anywhere near him for the money they’re talking anyway.

Poor man's Joe Gomez.

Exactly, Gomez is excellent. And still young also. De ligt should go to Barcelona, they'll inflate his ego even further.

De Ligt is 2 years younger than Gomez though. More games played, less injuries. He's also a fucking fantastic player already. 

 

Don't get the ego thing. He's a natural leader but seems pretty much down to earth in all the interviews I've seen.

I’d take a forward. A Joao Felix or someone with a similar profile/potential. Left back cover, goalkeeper cover. And replace anyone else that might leave. And that’s it.

I think we need one more top player in the profile of Firmino or Salah and Mané but I have a feeling we won't think it will be worth the big fee.

 

I don't think we need a #10 type anymore unless that player can also play striker. The way we play with 3 workhorses in the middle and the 3 forwards is so effective defensively and offensively. We just need to add a similar player to what we already have in attack to effectively rotate.
