      That’s because he hasn’t yet used us to get him a bigger deal with another club that’s actually interested.

      Will see

      Also people seem to forget we signed a 29yo Milner not so long ago and he ended up being a key player. We do make exceptions when a player fits a need (I know Klopp came after, but he was still an Edwards signing nonetheless).

      On a free with us only having to pay his wages!!

      Not the same as paying a fee for a 29 year old, hence us supposedly not going for Koulibaly from Napoli.

      It wont be a free, but a great option, this fella oozess class, and to help us stay on top maybe a great addition.
      I thought we had that with Shakiri,but with him being so succesful in his career so far, the guy just wants to play, and he is still only 28

      Earlier in the week - ESPN, Liverpool agree deal to sign Thiago.

      Today - ESPN, Liverpool won’t be signing Thiago as he doesn’t fit their transfer profile.

      Oh, I had forgotten Milner was on a free. You are right, big difference indeed. But I'll still regard it as some kind of proof that if a player really fits what we're looking for we can disregard the age. Are we ready to also disregard 25-30M pounds too, this I don't know. We'll have to wait and see.  :laugh:

      Well to be fair it’s been unreliable sources the whole time even saying we were after him in the first place.
      Never believed it from the start.

      Why is it that the same people who have been saying it is unreliable sources are now somehow trusting these same sources and are convinced he's signing for PSG and that he used us.

      Not saying we are or we should but lets, at least, be coherent  ;D

      Still don’t see how he is even a need. We have a player like this already, his name is Naby Keita.

      By people you mean me, so say it instead of being snide.

      I didn’t say I believed he was set for PSG, it was highlighting how the reports have suddenly changed from apparently being set for us, hence why I put “Apparently he is set for PSG now

      Not at all, mate. I just meant the general frenzy in this thread about disregarding a source when it's claiming a player is coming to us but then act as if the same source(s) was perfectly credible when it's saying the same player is heading somewhere else.

      I genuinely didn't specifically mean you, I was just having a go at the pessimistic approach a lot of people are showing in this thread (which is fine by me, but I kinda get lost in the Why and How the same sources grant two diametracally opposed reactions, based on what they say, in this thread)

      I’m going to be honest and say that Klopp and Edwards will have players in mind and they are waiting to see what happens with the markets and the level of funds coming into the club

      If money is there from the income to spend and Klopp and his team find a player they want then they will spend the money.

      I just think they've made a stance over the furlough/covid stuff and are sticking to it, situation may change season after next.

      I agree in some sense , we all know that the club works self sufficient and we are going to lose a sh*t load of money due to the loss of matchday revenue and corporate events. So I suspect any money spent will be from selling the likes of Wilson and Grujic etc

      He was bossing the midfield. He is a top quality player, no doubt about that.

      Still don’t think it happens though, unfortunately.

      Watching him yesterday he plays in the exact same role as Fabinho - why spend all those wages on an injury prone player when we already have a top quality player there

      There is a theory that Fabinho is going to be used at cb next season from time to time

      Lallana has gone

      I think that's why there has been talk around a new midfielder

      Personally I think the Thiago link is nothing more than an easy link and there isn't much in it at all. The link being he seemingly wanted it and Jürgen has spoken of him of being one of the top two midfielders in the Bundesliga

      It doesnt fit into our model really

      What theory is that ? We have Gomez at CB

      And Lallana has already been replace by Jones in the squad

      The talk of Thiago has come from German journalists only and fed by Thiagos team
