Rodrygo Goes on the Radar for Liverpool
Liverpool is reportedly eyeing Real Madrid superstar Rodrygo as a potential replacement for Mo Salah in the upcoming transfer window. Salah has been courted by Al-Ittihad, and if he decides to make a switch to Saudi Arabia, the Reds may turn to Rodrygo.
An Unmatched Talent
Jurgen Klopp has been on the lookout for a successor to Salah, and it seems like he has found his match in Rodrygo. The Brazilian ace, who will enter the final year of his contract at Real next year, has caught Klopp's attention.
The Price Tag
If Liverpool wants to secure Rodrygo's services, they will have to negotiate a big price with Real Madrid. Ancelotti's side is reportedly willing to listen to offers exceeding £86.5 million. This price tag, however, is still half of what Al-Ittihad is willing to pay for Salah.
A Rising Star in Madrid
Rodrygo joined Real Madrid from Santos for £40 million in 2019 and has since become a key player for the club. He has made 171 appearances, scored 38 goals, and won two La Liga titles, a Champions League, and a Copa del Rey. However, his start to this La Liga campaign has been inconsistent, potentially making him available for Liverpool's swoop.
A Perfect Opportunity for Liverpool
With Rodrygo potentially falling down Ancelotti's pecking order, Liverpool sees this as the perfect chance to snatch the Brazilian winger. Klopp has been monitoring Rodrygo since his days at Santos, and now he may finally get the chance to bring him to Anfield.
