"Strikes agin": Twitter in awe of Michael Edwards masterstroke

Liverpool have one of the best sporting directors in world football. We know as much because he just keeps on pulling off ridiculous deals. The Reds have in the past few years been assembling the best squad in the world for a bargain of a net spend. This window has been now different. Twitter has been in awe of Michael Edwards again after his Rhian Brewster masterstroke.

Liverpool transfer window

So far in this transfer window Liverpool have signed Kostas Tsimikas, Thiago Alcantara and Diogo Jota.

The Reds have also moved on Ki-Jana Hoever and Dejan Lovren and are expected to sell Xherdan Shaqiri, Harry Wilson and Marko Grujic before the deadline.

The club has spent around £71m on incoming transfers and has brought in around £23m from the sales of Dejan Lovren and Ki-Jana Hoever.

Sheffield United to sign Brewster

According to David Ornstein, Sheffield United are set to sign Rhian Brewster for £23.5m with a 15% sell on clause and a buy back clause which will last three years.

The deal represents an incredible piece of business from Michael Edwards. He has recouped more than the guaranteed portion of the Thiago fee by selling a player without a single Premier League appearance.

My Revenge On Ben Foster

Given the buy back clause we can even bring him back to Anfield should he begin to fulfil his potential. It is a truly astounding piece of negotiating from the director.

Two fans went for pretty visual explanations of how they feel about Edwards.

One user asked how the man keeps raking in exorbitant fees.

Another claimed he could sell shampoo to Pep Guardiola.

Net spend FC.

He’s won the window yet again.

The transfer suits us down to the ground.

Somebody get this man a knighthood for services to the Reds.
