Liverpool ‘monitoring’ Man Utd target in deal that would break records

Liverpool could attempt to muscle in on an England ace linked with both Man Utd and Man City amid the ongoing uncertainty over Mohamed Salah.

The Reds have regained their mojo after a shaky start to be assured of topping the league table at Christmas.

However, a recent revelation from a friend of Mohamed Salah put the lethal frontman’s future at Anfield in question.

Those comments were given further clarity in a follow-up report, but Salah’s potential exit is something Gary Neville remains convinced is only a matter of time.

Losing the Egyptian would be a massive blow to Jurgen Klopp, but the Mirror now report that a readymade replacement could be on the cards.

The outlet state that Liverpool are ‘monitoring Jack Grealish’s future amid claims Mo Salah is unhappy.’

The Aston Villa ace, 25, has stepped up a level in the current campaign. He has notched five goals and seven assists in just 12 games.

Five of those goal contributions came in their 7-2 demolition of Liverpool. Furthermore, Grealish’s remarkable development has seen him become a key figure in Gareth Southgate’s England plans.

The Villa talisman had previously been a summer transfer target for Man Utd, though had appeared to be their back-up option behind Jadon Sancho.

A deal for either failed to materialise, but the Mirror note that Villa are ‘braced for January approaches’ from Man Utd and their cross-town rivals Man City in January.

With Dean Smith’s side flying high, a winter switch would appear unlikely. But the lure of Champions League football could be tempting in the summer. That is something Liverpool are almost certain to be able to offer.

Grealish’s price tag was thought to be around the £80m mark in the summer. However, his superb form this season sees the article speculate a figure north of £100m would be required.

In the unlikely event Salah were to be sold, that money would be readily available to Liverpool.

A nine-figure deal would smash the transfer records of all three interested parties.


Real tipped to usurp Liverpool, Man Utd


Meanwhile, Real Madrid appear set to succeed where Man Utd and Liverpool will fail with a deal for a top defensive target reportedly ‘in the oven’.

The Spanish giant – along with Barcelona – have always been seen as an enticing destination for most footballers.

Despite the riches and competitiveness of the Premier League, the LaLiga duo have often been apex predators in the market.

Nevertheless, Liverpool and Man Utd are expected to be on the lookout for defensive reinforcements in the near future.

The Reds failed to adequately replace Dejan Lovren in the summer. As a result, defensive options have been scarce after the long-term injuries suffered by Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez.
