Liverpool came for his signature as they offered £180 million but they took to their heels knowing how much he’s worth.

He also would have scored a brace but he was denied by the post before Kalinic rebounded it into the back of the net.

Asensio won three champions league under then manager Zinedine Zidane and it seems he his explicitly finding his redeem with Spain’s manager Luiz Enrique.

Asensio can as well challenge for the world best after enduring patiently under the wings of Cristiano Ronaldo but as it stands he his becoming one player to always admire in Real Madrid.

So many Liverpool fans on Twitter claimed that he’s worth it while someone said Liverpool should rather break the banks to get such talent in our squad.

With the way the young lad is going, it means it won’t be long before Santiago outfits will forget Ronaldo. The buy out clause is worth more than so many Premier League clubs which is a sign that Madrid is not ready to let go.

Argentine international Mauro Icardi has since been strongly linked to major European clubs like Chelsea, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid.

Icardi had earlier failed to turn up for team meeting ahead of the Europa League win over Austrian side Rapid Vienna (1-0) and he’s also expected to miss the upcoming league game with Sampdoria because of injury.

De Ligt

Ajax Amsterdam defender Matthijs De Ligt has grown to become one of the most exciting young players in European football following his performances for both club and country, especially in the last one year.

His superb form has not gone unnoticed with major European clubs like Spanish La Liga giants Barcelona and Manchester United.

Spanish news portal Mundo Deportivo claim that Barcelona are very keen on a deal for Dutch international centre back De Ligt and that they will only make a move for him if the fitness concerns over French World Cup winner Samuel Umtiti continues.

Samuel Umtiti has had a season to forget as a result of a troublesome knee injury.

The ex-Lyon defender was part of the French team that conquered the whole world at last summer’s FIFA World Cup tournament in Russia.

He recently returned to light training at Barcelona after three months out with a knee problem.

A Barcelona transfer for Matthijs De Ligt is solely dependent on the fitness of Samuel Umtiti.

This could open the door for other interested clubs like Manchester United, Paris Saint Germain (PSG), Manchester City and Juventus who have all been linked with young defender De Ligt who’s rated at around £75m.

It has been revealed that the best of Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp could only be felt after the departure of Zeljko Buvac as assistant.

Suggestions are that Zeljko Buvac had an influence in the team which reduced the control of the German boss at the club when he first arrived in 2015.

Zeljko Buvac was viewed as the brain of the team until he departed in April 2018 for ‘personal reasons’ which is what gave the German boss the free hand to run the team.

Since leaving the club, Klopp became firm and in his decision making and that was reflected in their outing last campaign as they got to the finals of the Champions League as well as finishing second in the Premier League.

More so, a number of players were developed while their best was seen in addition o the good transfer decision to bring in Virgil Van Dijk and Joe Gomez.

However, this season is also speaking for itself for Jurgen Klopp as he is undoubtedly in for-front for the race to win the EPL title this term.

Meanwhile, the former Borussia Dortmund boss will hope to change the narrative by winning the first trophy as a Liverpool boss.

There are suggestions that winning the English Premier League for Liverpool is a done deal for the season as held by ESPN pundit Julien Laurens.

He explained that the Reds are not only keen on winning the title but their contenders- Man City do not have the EPL as their focus.

The ESPN pundit stated that Man City boss Pep Guardiola is only focused on winning the Champions League ahead of the Premier League which gives an edge to the Reds in the race.

Although the Citizens are currently in all of the competition with the hope of securing four trophies and they are favourites as well in all of them. That remains a disadvantage to them because of the divided attention it could cost while the Reds only have two trophies to challenge.

Julien Laurens, who noted that the Premier League is also very important to any team said Man City will have their priority on the Champions League this season as they also stand a chance to win it.

However, both team managers have got history with the Champions League as Pep Guardiola has won it twice while Pep Guardiola came close last season by failing to defeat Real Madrid in the finals.
