Punters from across the Merseyside divide in the Transfer Tavern have put aside their differences, and their expensive rounds, to discuss a transfer report that concerns both Premier League clubs.
30-year-old French international Mandanda is highly-rated after years excelling on the continent and the veteran goalkeeper wants a new challenge, with the stopper interested in a move to the Premier League.
Everton’s first-choice Tim Howard is reaching the back-end of his illustrious career, whilst Liverpool’s Simon Mignolet has been widely criticised- with many scousers in the bar declaring he’s not good enough for their beloved club.
Mandanda’s contract expires at the end of the season and he is free to speak to clubs outside of France in the new year, where a pre-contractual agreement can be reached.
The highly-rated and experienced goalkeeper is sure to be desperate for a chance to impress at the highest level of European football, so it could come down to which Merseyside outfit land a spot in the Champions League.
