It turned out that Liverpool had brought in a player who had given up on it early on.
Global media ‘The Athletic’ reported on the 15th (Korean time), “Liverpool was not willing to spend more than 40 million pounds (approximately 66 billion won) to recruit Mason Mount, so he headed to Manchester United.” .메이저놀이터
Mount is considered one of the players who heated up the transfer market this summer. Immediately after the end of last season, negotiations for a new contract with Chelsea were disrupted, raising the possibility of a transfer.
The transfer was expected to take place this summer. Chelsea decided to sell Mount, whose contract is set to expire in 2024, this summer to make money from the transfer fee.
Liverpool was initially mentioned as a likely destination. Liverpool selected Mount as an ideal alternative to fill the voids of James Milner, Oxlade-Chamberlain and Naby Keita.
Despite the numerous transfer rumors, no specific negotiations were carried out. Rather, Manchester United, who intervened late, took the lead. Ultimately, Manchester United signed Mount for a transfer fee of 60 million pounds (about 99 billion won) last July.
Liverpool did not withdraw from the competition with Manchester United. According to this report, Liverpool will not value Mount at more than £40 million.
No investment was spared in recruiting other midfielders. Liverpool successfully strengthened their midfield by signing Alexis Mac Illister, Dominique Szoboslaui, and Wataru Endo.
If you look at the results so far, Liverpool’s choice was not wrong. Mount has not been able to show performance worthy of his £60 million contract at Manchester United. Due to his injury, he will not be able to play for the time being.
