Liverpool did get a lot of money from the sale of Philippe Coutinho and it seems Liverpool are ready to make a big move in the summer window for one of Real Madrid’s stars.
A report carried by Don Balon (h/t Liverpool Echo) suggests that we want to sign Dani Carvajal from Madrid. We have had a problem regarding Nathaniel Clyne due to injuries and the Spaniard would be a great addition to our side.
There are a number of problems regarding this deal as Carvajal will need to be convinced to join us given that he is one of the first-team players at Real. Further, the player has a release clause of £310m, which we are sure no one will be willing to pay.
Even Cafu, the Brazil legend also added that Carvajal is one of the best right-backs to have played for Real.
“He is very good, one of the best in the world after Daniel Alves,” Cafu told MARCA.
“He’s been playing well for many years, attacking with force and defending with the same determination.
“Real Madrid haven’t had a full-back as good as him for a long time.”
Clyne might be a bit of a problem but we do have a couple of young stars who can step up and have done this season with aplomb. Joe Gomez and Trent Alexander-Arnold have been excellent this season and to be honest, the pair can continue doing well and progress for us under Jurgen Klopp.
However, not having an experienced player for the position could turn out to be a major problem for us next season. We could have suffered big if we did not have the pair of Gomez and Trent not starred for us this season but we believe this is just one more rumour to come out from the Spanish press.
Rumours like these were all a sundry during last summer when Philippe Coutinho was linked with a move away to Barcelona and maybe this is Carvajal’s way of trying to get Real to sign him a new deal or even search for a new club.
Klopp too won’t be willing to splash a crazy amount of money for a right-back at the moment and it seems highly unlikely that Carvajal could be our next big signing.
