Man City stopped Liverpool from completing £103m transfer this summer

Manchester City stopped Liverpool from completing £103million transfer that would have been signing of the summer.

Erling Haaland made his Premier League debut for Manchester City, scoring twice against West Ham United.


The Norwegian is going to be an incredible source of goals for Manchester City this season, and his rivalry with Darwin Nunez for the league’s highest scoring forward is already shaping up.

The Uruguayan striker scored on his debut for Liverpool against Fulham, but he was unable to inspire a comeback from the bench as the game ended 2-2. It’s disappointing that two points were dropped in the first game of the season, especially since many of last season’s most concerning issues were on display.

Injuries in midfield, a lack of incisive passing through the middle of the park, and a tendency to draw away from home against lower-tier opponents.


Fulham won the Championship last season, but finishing above midtable would be an incredible achievement for Marco Silva’s men.

However, it was the newly promoted London club who took the game to Liverpool, with Jurgen Klopp’s men struggling to find an answer and failing to lead at any point, with equalizers from Nunez and Mohamed Salah rescuing a point.

There were several bright spots that gave fans hope ahead of the two consecutive Monday night games against Crystal Palace and Manchester United.

The Reds face two extremely difficult tests.

The chemistry between Nunez and Salah is already promising, and if they can add Luis Diaz and form a tight-knit forward trio, Liverpool will be very dangerous.


With Thiago, Curtis Jones, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain all ruled out, Klopp must determine his current best midfield trio and stick with it until Thiago returns or a new midfield signing is made.

Liverpool’s problems could be solved by signing Jude Bellingham, but doing so this month is nearly impossible. Although I believe that every club has a set price at which they will sell a player.

According to The Athletic, Dortmund will only sell Bellingham for £103 million, but that would be far too much to let him go this month.


The Reds are in talks to sign him, but the earliest he could arrive is in January, with a summer arrival more likely.

Clubs across Europe are well aware that Borussia Dortmund will not sell another key player this summer in accordance with their one-transfer-per-summer policy on sanctioning summer exits.

In a cruel twist of fate, Manchester City is to blame for Liverpool failing to sign their top transfer target.

Erling Haaland joined the Premier League champions for £51 million, but when wages, agent fees, and bonuses are factored in, the true cost of his move to the Etihad is closer to £294 million (€350 million).

However, with Dortmund selling Haaland this summer, any interest in Bellingham becomes obsolete.

Anfield Central understands that Julian Ward’s top priority heading into the summer was to sign Jude Bellingham, but the club understood that he was not for sale.


With the internal belief at Liverpool that they need to improve their midfield options, all eyes turned to Aurelien Tchouameni.

However, since Real Madrid bullied their way to the 22-year-signature, old’s Ward and co. have been unable to find an ideal target, and so the club’s long-term target, Bellingham, will remain the club’s long-term target unless the right opportunity presents itself, as it did with Luis Diaz in January.
