Our landlord is an honest guy and he can’t help but admit that a lot of rivals fans are laughing at our Liverpool supporters here in the Football Transfer Tavern this evening!
But why you ask?
Well Metro are claiming that Liverpool are interested in pursuing an eye-watering £75 million deal for Bayern Munich superstar Robert Lewandowski and the laughs are audible amongst our Manchester United fans in particular!
Having scored 25 goals already this season, there isn’t a team in world football that wouldn’t benefit from the Polish international’s clinical finishing and if he were to even become available in the summer, surely other clubs would have the upper hand on Liverpool in the transfer market?
One of those teams is Real Madrid who have been trailing another forward to relieve the pressure on Karim Benzema for a little while now and with Liverpool making hard work of a top four finish so far this season, surely they need to be in the Champions League to even start thinking of signing marquee names?
But our Liverpool supporters claim what about the Jurgen Klopp factor.
Well, in fairness to the German boss, it is the summer transfer window where we’ll see his true potential with Klopp seemingly content to sail through until then with what he’s got in the main, barring a potential swoop for Alex Teixeira.
We’ve decided to humour our Reds fans by the bar today while devising a list of five players who could end up following Lewandowski to Anfield if he joins (we’re highly doubtful however!)
