The great moment that Colombian Luis Fernando Díaz is experiencing has made him one of the best signings in the Premier League in 2022. The attacker, who already has two goals since his arrival at Liverpool, he has stolen all the praise from locals and strangers, something significant for his career.
However, Lucho cannot be trusted, because although he has earned a position in coach Jürgen Klopp’s squad, in the Reds they ask for a world-class star, who plays in his position. At least that is what the team’s winger wants, Sadio Mané, who in the last hours assured that he would like to see with the colors of Liverpool to the French winger Kylian Mbappé, a player who has not yet defined his future in France.
The Senegalese spoke with the French newspaper, The team about the possibility of seeing the ex-Monaco at Anfield. “I would like to play with him, of course… It would be an exceptional attack. But it is he who has to come to Liverpool. I’m sure he would like it, ”said the winger who was champion with his African Cup team.
A possible arrival of Mbappé at Liverpool would somewhat overshadow the ownership of Luis Díaz, since he would be a direct rival in that position. However, this possibility still seems distant, because after the elimination in the Champions League, at the hands of Real Madrid, the Frenchman would have everything arranged to play in the ‘merengues’ awnings after the middle of the year, time for which the next transfer period.
Salah puts obstacles to its renewal. Diaz effect?
The investment made by the Colombian does not directly imply that other players will leave, although it can be a response mechanism in the face of a complicated negotiation with Mohamed Salah.
The Egyptian’s contract ends in 2023 and so far the distances have been too great with the club’s offer and the footballer’s claims that this year he will reach the age of 30, just after completing what would be his last season at Anfield, if it is that things are not on track between now and June.
The situation exploded last Friday, before the game against Brighton, when manager Jürgen Klopp mentioned the state of negotiations. “Mo expects the club to be more ambitious, but he has already done everything he can. Everything is going well”the German pointed out.
Given these statements, the Colombian businessman Ramy Abbas Issa published a tweet with smiling emojis, a very direct hint to make fun of the way in which Klopp dribbled what is happening with the future of his main figure.
This crossover of versions was reinforced with information from Fabrizio Romano, a famous journalist specializing in the European market, who indicated that “Salah and his agent have no intention of accepting Liverpool’s current offer of a new contract.”
Even the Italian assured that “talks have broken down since December” and they will not sit down again until the Reds agree to raise the economic conditions for a renewal that, under normal conditions, would be the Egyptian’s last major contract as a professional.
