A black cloud has assembled over the Transfer Tavern today, as Liverpool and Manchester City fans use what’s left of our Christmas napkins to wipe tears of their sorry little faces.
News of the Spanish giant’s interest is a significant blow to our Liverpool punters, who were optimistic of completing a deal after Metro reported yesterday that the Reds have opened talks with the German sensation.
However, dreams of a transfer taking place for the £40m-rated Bundesliga ace have taken a massive blow with the emergence of Real Madrid in the market- as money is no object to the side led by Zinedine Zidane.
Zidane himself is aware of the player’s talents, reportedly asking for more reports on the recently-capped Germany international.
Our landlord has stated this is bad news for Liverpool, as he doesn’t think the Reds can beat Barcelona, City and Real Madrid to a stellar player.
Where will Sane end up? Let us know in the comments below!
