Lots of Liverpool fans have been responding to a tweet from Reds news Twitter account @AnfieldWatch, which has shared some news on Michael Edwards’ negotiation tactics, specifically those that helped the Merseyside club to sign Ozan Kabak on loan with an option to buy, as opposed to a deal that included an obligation to make the deal permanent.
As explained by James Pearce in an article that he recently wrote for The Athletic, Schalke wanted to force Liverpool to make this transfer permanent in the summer, however, the Reds’ sporting director Edwards ‘warned’ the Bundesliga side that his club was ‘prepared to walk away’ from the deal unless it included simply an option to buy instead.
