The fact that the club look like they are going to close on signing Diaz, might give them a stronger hand in the contract talks.
As in, we've just signed a top player, so if you don't like the terms, we're better equipped for life without you.
Still think they would like to keep him though, and maybe consider offers for Bob/Mane.
Not actually sure how much we'd get for Bob,or if it would be a lot more than Origi.
I would very much doubt that there is anything that joins the dots between Diaz come in and Mo signing a contract, I’d look at it the other way and say signing Diaz is actually much more beneficial to Mo, offering more opportunities to score rather replacing teammates he’s already so familiar with, this is about strengthening rather than making us weaker, no one is making way for Luis Diaz, I think you will find that come the summer we will see other fresh swinging dicks rocking up at the Axa, in particular two maybe three hairy arsed midfielder’s, which is without doubt the weakest part of the squad, in Hendo, Milner , AOC, Thiago, and maybe even Fabinho time isn’t on our side here, so we need to freshen things up throw a spanner or two into the works,
There’s a plethora of candidates out there and we all have our opinions on who should be signed, I can see the Kop belting out “Hey Jude” in the not too distant future for he is absolutely perfect for us, Klopp only signs those who fit, and this Bellingham fella is a glove on legs,
Another I would love here is Raphinha at Leeds, oozes class does this lad, however now that Diaz is imminent I really can’t see it happening now, Tielemans is another who impresses, watched him a few times last couple of seasons, what I get is a hard worker willing to run through brick walls, however, I have noticed he seems to drift in and out of games sometimes so maybe nutrition is lacking,
Ives Bissouma at Brighton seems a decent prospect, tbh though, I’ve not been keeping my eye on him so perhaps someone else has better authority than me to wax lyrical, but he’s always been linked for some reason or another, but that could be click bait worming it’s ugly head again,
No doubt that Jürgen & Co will have a shopping list of sorts, one that none of us are privy to, none of us seen Diaz coming in did we ? Perfect example, so who knows, can’t really seeing us doings anymore business this window but never say never eh !
