Liverpool fans in the Football Football Transfer Tavern are dealt with a major blow after talkSPORT revealed that Inter Milan had beat them to Bayern Munich’s unwanted midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri.
Brendan Rodgers had targeted the Swiss international as one of his main transfer priorities heading into the window but he has failed to compete with the Italian giants.
Reds fans thought it was dead certain that their club would be in for the 23-year-old considering their struggles in front of goal this season.
And punters thought that considering his inspirational performances for his country, he would be the man to revitalise their poor start to the 2014/15 season.
Shaqiri will arrive at the San Siro on loan with an view to permanent £12 million switch at the end of the season.
Roberto Mancini is beginning to build an exciting attacking force after also bringing in Lukas Podolski on loan from Arsenal.
The former Manchester City boss has managed to find talented forwards who are struggling for game time and is hoping they can go out and prove their former club wrong, whilst pushing up the Serie A table.
