Liverpool are in desperate need of reinforcements in the middle of the park as well as up top. As a result it’s frustrating to see such inertia whilst our rivals make decisive moves. Lifelong Kopite and Peterborough chairman Darragh MacAnthony is in the same boat, to the extent he urged the agent of Jack Grealish to send him to Liverpool instead of Man City.
Man City to sign Jack Grealish
This summer will see the end of Man City fans’ ability to say ‘we don’t spend big money on players’.
For years they’ve tried to excuse their megabucks sprees by saying they don’t go around breaking records – they just spend £50m on six players at a time.
It’s now being widely reported that Man City will sign Jack Grealish in a £100m deal.
The Aston Villa midfielder has long been linked with a move away and it looks like he’s finally getting his wish.
Jack Grealish to Liverpool
It’s no secret that Peterborough owner Darragh MacAnthony is a massive Kopite.
The executive spoke to Transfer Show on Sky Sports (03/08/21 at 7:15 pm) about the Reds’ business and admitted he wanted Jack Grealish at Liverpool:
“The job Jurgen Klopp has done is miraculous. When you see the net spend over the last five or six years. I think Liverpool are seventh or eighth in that table.
“I know Grealish’s agent and I was joking with him two months ago because he has one of our players in his stable, ‘please send Jack Grealish to Liverpool’.
“But Liverpool aren’t going to spend a £100 million on a player. But I wish they would.”
What RTK has to say
Liverpool just don’t have that kind of money unfortunately.
We don’t spend those sums on players and it could eventually see us being left behind.
Fingers crossed Michael Edwards has something up his sleeve because the way Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City are recruiting, we may not be able to keep up.
