Borussia Dortmund are unlikely to agree to a Naby Keïta type agreement with the Reds over the sale of Christian Pulisic, according to Michael Bridge.
We’re entering into the phase of the transfer window where clubs begin to start making panic buys and sales as Liverpool fans would know from Brendan Rodgers’ time at the club.
Manchester United and Chelsea are likely to conduct some business in the next two and a half days as they are yet to sign the players they want while Liverpool are still tipped for late moves despite Klopp saying he won’t be active as far as incomings are concerned.
Christian Pulisic is a player that some thought the Reds could make a late swoop for but he is unlikely to arrive before Deadline Day and is apparently also unlikely to have an early agreement for a move to Liverpool put in place.
According to Sky Sports reporter Michael Bridge, Borussia Dortmund won’t agree to a pre-contract agreement with Liverpool due to the fact that they don’t have the pressure to sell that RB Leipzig did with Naby Keïta.
“Keita had the £48m release clause which kicked in this summer and Liverpool paid a premium on that to secure him,” Bridge explained. “Leipzig were destined to lose him anyway but Dortmund aren’t in that position with Pulisic.
“He is some player. You’d imagine him having interest from all the top European clubs.
“Jürgen Klopp absolutely gets a player when he likes them.”
