Real Madrid midfield maestro emerged as shock transfer target for Liverpool

By | November 20, 2021

Liverpool are allegedly interested in landing Real Madrid midfielder Federico Valverde.

The 23-year-old player has been a heavily rotated member of the Italian manager Carlo Ancelotti’s side this campaign and could look for a key role in the future.

Under previous head coach Zinedine Zidane, the Uruguayan was somewhat of a utility man and even played as a right-back against the Reds in a stunning Anfield display in the UEFA Champions League.

Now according to a recent report from El Nacional, head coach Jurgen Klopp is thinking about a move for the South American star.

The report states that the German tactician would ‘love’ to add the versatile midfielder to the ranks on Merseyside.

This season the former Penarol youngster has made 12 appearances for the Galacticos across all competitions.

Signing Valverde, who is under contract at the Santiago Bernabeu outfit until 2027, would likely be an expensive venture.

Boasting an array of brilliant attributes, the man who is a midfield player would add excellent versatility to Jurgen’s squad.

Unfortunately, considering the length of the contract and the eye-watering €1 billion release clause, on this occasion, it’d appear only the player forcing a transfer would make this even remotely possible.
