Peterborough chairman Darragh MacAnthony: It is ‘my dream’ for Liverpool to buy Ronnie Edwards
The Irish author, entrepreneur, and most importantly an apparent Liverpool fan, was conversing on Twitter with some of the Posh fans.
And in a reply to one of them who joked that he could sell Edwards for 50p to his ‘boyhood club Liverpool’, MacAnthony admitted that it is his ‘dream’ for LFC to buy Edwards.
Perhaps the 46-year-old Dublin-born businessman tweeted that with a tinge of humour, there aren’t many clubs better than Liverpool when it comes to honing world-class talents.
What is MacAnthony up to?
LFC, being a global sporting giant, can also spare an extra buck when negotiating with lower-division teams. Edwards is an up-and-coming centre-back for the Championship team.
According to the Southern Daily Echo last month, Aston Villa, Tottenham Hotspur, Crystal Palace, Southampton and Manchester United have all shown interest in him. That shows just how talented the 19-year-old is.
But it remains to be seen if the Reds ever show interest in the youngster. They already have several young centre-backs in their ranks, including Billy Koumetio who has sealed a loan move to Austria Vienna this summer.
But a homegrown 19-year-old centre-back who has an idea of English football at his tender age would be a solid option for most clubs- be it as an understudy for one of their senior players or as an option for the future.

Hopefully, MacAnthony realises this dream sometime in the future if the Reds ever sit on the negotiation table with him. As of now, there is no indication that they would.
