Not sure I see the club paying him the reputed 300+k a week he's rumoured to be on with Dortmund, Ronnie lad. And players never seem to take a wage cut.

 

Personally, I think the Sancho, Havertz and Mbappe ships have sailed.Well, the Mbappe one never got off the slipway in my opinion!

Possibly Docker. I mean if I was an elite player and someone said we're going to give you 200k and a gigantic sign on fee to cover the extra 100k, I'd be happy out, but I think with a lot of players, it's nearly a status thing. Not a hope they allow him to earn more than Virgil for example. I guess that's a huge part of the reason we are what we are. No egos and all good lads.

he is pretty much everywhere reported to earn 11m euros per year. although that would still put him on a par with our top earners. Sancho seems as likely as Mbappe.

Do the players have secondary agents who advise them on the deals they sign with their primary agents? 

 

Why would you sign with an agent who is taking such a whacking big slice when that might stop you moving where you want to go?

No. Red bull had a deadline. We asked him to wait till a similar clause kicked in the following season. The story about was red bull wanted the money then, although it would feel to me Werner wanted to get his move. 

Oh aye, but it was Werner we asked to wait, not Sancho, was the main thing.

I think where it gets murky is that players have an agent, the buying club may have an agent and the selling club yet another agent. And they all want a slice of the deal.

 

That ONeil who joined our U23 backroom staff said he was on the verge of joining Liverpool when another agent got in touch and said do the deal through him else the transfer is off. He says the deal was all sorted through his own agent so ignored the guy. The deal didnt happen so how this other agent stopped the deal is anyone's guess.

Not sure where he’d play.

I saw him in the League Cup against Chelsea autumn / winter 2018 in midfield. Busy, good on the ball, decent without much room. In a way he wasn't unlike Gini, though obviously it was a while ago & he's been injured since (or for a big spell). He's young, he'd be on the bench for a while before anywhere near our starting XI. All that said, I've no idea where he's been playing for Bournemouth this past few months?

Eh? I disagree - I think they do. I'm sure you've heard Jurgen specifically talking about the importance of good squad morale, harmony and doing the right thing for the player. Some of it is fluff but it's largely the reason he's such a brilliant manager.  

 

Norwich now have a fucked off LB in their ranks and no doubt, all of their other players who wanted PL moves will take note (Cantwell, Aarons, etc). Good luck to them at finding a club who'll give them what they value him at after we've publicly walked away - I agree he'll find another club but I don't think they'll get more than 12m for him. 

 

I'm not saying they were obliged to sell to us, but I don't think we'd have walked away unless they were being pretty absurd with their valuation. Noises of "20m and we can start talking" are ridiculous if true. I don't think Liverpool wanted a back and forth saga over a backup LB, and Norwich unfortunately didn't read the room. 

 

Lastly, poor lad. Im really happy with Tsimikas (he was my preference based on what I've seen and read) but Lewis is a talented British fullback who has publicly gushed over our two British world-class fullbacks and was willing to take a pay cut as in investment in his career. I like the idea of players like that playing for us and I hope he finds an alternative club where he can succeed.

Yeah, Lewis is probably disappointed, but given his temperament, I suspect he'll put that to the side when pre-season starts & he has to start competing for his place again. He's got a decent mindset for a relative youth, so I don't think he'll be rocking the boat at Norwich too much. I suspect he'll keep his head down, work hard & get a move to a better club in due time. Leicester might well be a good shout (from whoever made it).

It's 120m to Dortmund (City gets 15%, I think) plus 50m for agent.

50m to the agent!? Fucking eye watering and one for the shitness of modern football thread!

If we're convinced of his fitness (potential for a failed medical) I'd get Brooks signed. Think he has real quality. Either from the right, or if we play with a more advanced midfielder, or even potential cover for Bobby. 

 

Main danger for him is becoming a bit of a Dele Alli and overspecialising in a luxury position thatll make him a difficult tactical fit at times.

 

Can't find much of substance supporting the story though so it's prob bollocks.

I seriously doubt Sancho's agent will be getting anything like £50m. Agent fees are published every year, we've been top of that pile for the last couple of years and 'only' paid £30m (ludicrously, in the main on contract renewals) in 19/20 and £44m the year before.

 

£50m for an agent on one transfer doesn't pass the smell test for me.

The media will be rolling all sorts of estimates into it to get a nice click bait headline.  I don’t know much about how agents work these days but I’m sure they used to take a percentage of the salary that the player earns. If Sancho signs a deal at united that’s around 300k a week and that was to be between 10-20% to the agent then it starts to add up to a lot of money, add that to an agent fee that the buying club pays the agent and a selling club one and you get your fat number.  As I say I’m guessing but I think the reality is that only one of those things tends to happen (maybe two at a push) and if the agent is getting fees from more than one place then the other stream gets lowered because it will be a negotiation on who is paying the them.

Would love us to get Sarr, exactly the player we need. Can cover wide, rapid, huge ceiling for improvement. Loves Sadio

Ive no idea how football agents get paid. But didnt that agent of pogba's, Raiola get a ludicrous amount for doing that deal ie something like 40m?

I'd be really surprised if that would all be paid by one club. Perhaps there would be a payment from the seller, the buyer and the player. So if it were £40m perhaps it would be profit based (seller), salary/signing fee based (player) and fee based (buyer). However it works, unlikely to be just from the buying club.

Yes, would agree with that.

It's probably been said before but it wouldn't make a lot of sense to be signing Sarr given he's African and a forward, seeing as we'll be losing two African forwards for the AFCON already (assuming they're both still here of course)

Klopp has devised a model to counter this and he practised it last season. It's easy, all you need to do is win all the games up to Christmas and let the lads go off and enjoy the tournament.

Sarr has 4 years left on his contract and Watford paid around 30 million for him, so unless he has a relegation clause then he's going to cost around 50 million +

Is he a regular for his national team? I assume he plays for the same national team as Mané?

Reportedly Palace are in talks with Watford to sign Sarr on a loan to buy deal.

    • Tuchel seems a right moaner, he’ll fit right in at City.
    • Jurgen Klopp says that Diogo Jota is making huge strides since joining the club but there is plenty more improvement left in the Portuguese star.

      In his first league start at Anfield, the 23 year-old forward was a hard worker throughout and his reward was a priceless winner with a pin-point header from a Sadio Mane cross.

      Liverpool were certainly not at their fluent best, still adapting to life without Virgil Van Dijk, but gladly welcomed back Alisson from a three match absence with a Shoulder injury.

      VAR continued to antagonise the Liverpool faithful when Sheffield United won a highly debatable penalty early in the contest when Fabinho was adjudged to have fouled Blades striker Oliver McBurnie despite countless video replays not being conclusive in declaring where in fact the contact was.

      Sander Berge duly dispatched the spot-kick and it was clear that the visitors, without a win heading into this contest were growing in confidence. Roberto Firmino got himself on the scoresheet for the first time this season tapping home from close range which would have been a massive boost to his confidence. 

      Jota then scored his goal midway through the second half, his second since joining the club and speaking in his post-match (per Sky Sports) the German spoke highly of the recent arrival.  

      "He's still adapting to us, a lot of things are not natural to him that we do," Klopp said. "But that's because Wolves play differently. A lot of things he did for Wolves are what we want him to do. 

      “That he is that close already is just a sign of how good a player he is, and if he stays fit, he is 23, the future is bright. We will need his quality, I'm happy with how he's settled in.

      “He's a good player, that's what I like about him, I said it to my coaches and said it's so easy because he's such a likeable person which makes everything easy. The player is quick, his physicality is strong, he's good in the air, on the ground, but he has the quality we need, and that helps a lot."

      The player himself was delighted to have had the final say but it tinged with a bit of sadness.

      “Like I said before when I scored my first one, I just wish these stands could be full to make it even more special. But I think in the end the most important [thing] was that my goal was important to seal the victory, so I’m very pleased with that.”

      As we have seen so far this season,  results are of a such a inconsistent nature and points so hard to pick up on a consistent basis which is why every win should be savoured in their own way.

      Jota is well aware of what lies ahead and that is why momentum is key.

      “I think that’s why we need everyone to stay fit, we need everyone to give his best. I think we go game by game but we know how hard it will be so it’s important for us to get the points.”

    • I can recall united getting battered at Southampton 2 years in a row and having plenty of absolutely diabolical performances but somehow they turned losses into draws and draws into wins and it fucking ruined my teenage years the cunts, and even though Chelsea were never battered, I remember them away at Watford and Palace and were again, truly shocking but came away with the 3 points.  Point is, these nights tonight are exactly what gives us the aura of we'll just find a way to win somehow, and most of the time, just as united and Chelsea had when they were winning titles.  
    • Every goal we score, I am like this these days. Stupid VAR.
