Liverpool fans must have hatred for Barcelona about how they normally get away with signing most of their best players from Anfield; not minding to even break the banks.
Liverpool sold Suarez for £75 million then the Catalan giants came knocking for Coutinho has they splashed £142 million on him.
Barcelona have come again but do I think the fans will be worried? Well, I don’t think so because they are in for the Spanish left-back who is yet to kick the ball with the Reds this season.
After keeping tabs on Arsenal’s Nacho Monreal and Atletico Madrid’s Filipe Luiz, Barca finally added Liverpool’s Alberto Moreno since Lucas Digne departed to Everton during the summer transfer.
Barca are ahead of rivals Real Madrid in the league table, after grabbing 3 straight wins in 3 but are still in search of a left back.
The Spanish player has shown how much of an attacking minded player he is but made several mistakes that cost Jurgen Klopp to drop points.
Moreno has however scored 3 goals and made 11 assist since 2015 but he could be a good replacement for Jordi alba as both players are really fast with the ball.
Liverpool fans may be overwhelmed by this movement but would now accept letting him go.
Should Liverpool allow him it will be the third player bought from Anfield in 4 years.
Do you think Moreno should stay or leave?

Another big EPL side could join Chelsea in transfer ban
West London outfit Chelsea might not be alone in the transfer ban in coming weeks with claims that they might be joined by Premier League defending Champions Man City.
The Blues were hammered with a ban from two transfer windows as well as a fine for a transfer deal with a minor which is against the FIFA rule.
However, the latest report claims that the Citizens are currently being investigated for the same reasons and they could be hammered as well if found guilty of the offence.
Although, the West London outfit have vowed to appeal the ban claiming that some of their petitions were not considered before the ban was placed.
This development is expected to affect the Blues team ahead of next season especially now that they are battling to secure wins under manager Maurizio Sarri.
Chelsea are expected to part ways with Belgium international Eden Hazard at the end of the season after he refused to sign a new deal at the club. Suggestions are that he would be heading to his dream club, the Spanish La Liga giants Real Madrid.
With Chelsea set to lose their biggest asset and having no opportunity to replace him, it is no doubt a hard pill for the fans to swallow.
No Sporting Director Role For Wenger At PSG
Paris Saint Germain (PSG) chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi has played down rumours linking former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger with the Sporting Director role at the club.

PSG supremo Nasser Al-Khelaifi addressed the rumours concerning Wenger in an interview with French media outlet Le Parisien.
He said that he has a good relationship with Wenger before adding that PSG retain the faith in current sporting director Antero Henrique.

Also, manager Maurizio Sarri feared to be nearing the exit door with claims that the club cannot longer bear the defeats suffered in recent weeks. It is reported that he could be sacked in coming days especially if he fails to win the next two games.
Olivier Giroud has his contract running out and it will expire at the end of the season which makes the talks of his future necessary.
The former Arsenal forward will only wait to know the plans of the manager, either Sarri or a new one for him before making whatsoever decisions.
However, Olivier Giroud has been linked with a move to the French Ligue 1 and the MLS with claims that he has had offers from some of the clubs.
Jurgen Klopp says what he wants at the end of the season
Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is hoping that the season ends in an outstanding way for his side as that is the only way they are be assured of the English Premier League title.

Why Chelsea will consider former Assistant over Zidane for Sarri job

The big reason why Chelsea may not serve FA ban
There are suggestions that the West London outfit Chelsea might not serve the ban handed to them by the FA for their offence of securing the signature of a youngster who is regarded as a minor.
The Blues team have therefore been handed a fine of about £460,000 and they will not sign a player in the next two transfer windows, a development that is expected to be a big blow to the team, knowing that they will have some players like Belgium international Eden Hazard leave the team while Spanish midfielder Cesc Fabregas would not be replaced.
However, it has been reported that the West London outfit are not ready to accept fate but will go ahead to appeal the ban despite respecting the efforts by FIFA in ensuring that mirrors are fully protected in the game.
Chelsea hinted that they have made some submissions which they expect FIFA to consider before making the decision. They will push for it to be considered, according to reports.
More so, this is not the first time that the West London outfit are being banned by the FA with the last happening in 2009 but they had appealed it and the world football governing body had it reduced.
