This summer Liverpool will be moving players on before bringing them in. The Reds are facing up to the financial realities of the global health crisis and preparing for one of their least expensive transfer windows. We can expect players to leave before players come in.

James Milner began his career with Leeds United, he only left his boyhood side as the the club were forced to sell their top talents in order to resolve a devastating financial situation.

The Yorkshire side being promoted to the Premier League has led to fans from both clubs discussing the possibility that Milner may return to Leeds to aid them in consolidating their place in the top flight.

Now just one appearance away from Liverpool being the club he has the most appearances for, Milner has been a loyal servant to the side since he arrived on a free from Manchester City. We can’t begrudge him if he wants to return to Elland Road for his twilight years.

If we did let Milly go then we could replace him with a widely reported target.
