Bayern Munich star Sadio Mane has just sent FSG another clear transfer message after joining Liverpool Trend



Sadio Mane becomes the latest player to learn the hard way that life after Liverpool and Jürgen Klopp isn’t as easy as they’d hoped.

It has been a dramatic week for Liverpool fans. After the thrill of Sunday’s comeback draw against Arsenal, he was back to normal with a thud several days later as this roller coaster season hit yet another slump.

With reports on Tuesday appearing to confirm that the Reds will not be in the market for Jude Bellingham this summer, pressure on club owners FSG has increased significantly. After all, the Borussia Dortmund midfielder has long been touted as Liverpool’s ultimate goal.

Instead, John Henry and his colleagues are expecting a decisive summer. With Bellingham having failed to make it to Anfield, they now have several signings to make which will improve what has been a terrible season.

With his first-choice transfer now ineligible, Jürgen Klopp will have to turn his attention to other targets and it is imperative that FSG – and anyone following in Julian Ward’s footsteps – delivers what he asks for.

The club owners simply cannot afford to get their German wrong again. Klopp is under contract at Anfield until 2026 and on the surface his relationship with the owners has rarely been scrutinized. However, another failed transfer window could risk casting doubt on the 55-year-old and leaving him wondering if he is still with the right club.

Make no mistake, Liverpool will be much worse if Klopp decides it’s time to leave. The Reds have one of the best managers in the world in charge and that has become clearer this week.

When Sadio Mane decided to leave Liverpool last summer, while it was a heartbreaking moment for many, it was also seen as an understandable decision by the Senegal international. He had won everything with the club and could choose his teams for a new challenge.

Unfortunately, things didn’t quite go as planned for him. Just 11 goals in 32 games for Bayern Munich and a lengthy injury layoff on both World Cup sides was a disappointment, but things were set to get worse this week.

Mané has now been suspended by his club after beating team-mate Leroy Sané following Bayern’s loss to Manchester City in the Champions League quarter-finals. It’s the latest setback in a difficult first year away from Anfield for the 31-year-old and it’s yet another reminder for any current Liverpool player who might consider a move this summer that the grass is not not always greener on the other side.

Mane becomes the latest player to decide to leave the Reds but finds life much more difficult, following the likes of Georginio Wijnaldum, Philippe Coutinho and Emre Can. And of course it’s no coincidence that they struggled without Klopp to lead them.

The German belongs to an elite group of managers. He has transformed a club that was once struggling to regain its former glory into one of the best in the world, turning its players into superstars.

Few in the industry have that kind of power and FSG had better accommodate the demands for him this summer. As things stand, we’re ready for three more years of Jürgen Klopp – we certainly don’t want any less.


Liverpool owners FSG have a double transfer defense to justify Jude Bellingham ‘U’ turn

Jude Bellingham had been heavily linked with a move to Liverpool before reports emerged this week that the club were pulling out of a deal.

It has been a roller coaster week for Liverpool supporters after reports emerged the club had tried to sign Jude Bellingham, only to quickly receive news that they had pulled out of the race altogether. Instead, Liverpool are expected to use the money set aside for this summer on multiple midfield signings rather than spending it all on a single player.

There is a lot of anger and frustration among Liverpool fans over the apparent new attitude towards Bellingham after months of speculation that Anfield is his preferred destination. Nothing can be ruled out until the summer transfer window and a lot can still change between now and then. But for now, it seems Liverpool have no plans to meet Borussia Dortmund’s demands. Bellingham has already been touted as the lord and savior of Liverpool by club fans with mock-up photos of the midfielder in a Reds shirt.

However, he isn’t the first player Liverpool have been closely linked with, only for the club to reverse their original plans. It was 2018 when the Reds were looking to revamp their midfield and Nabil Fekir was seen as the man who would take the club to the next level.

The Frenchman had just wrapped up a sensational season at Lyon and looked set to join Liverpool in a £53million transfer, only for the deal to fall through in the eleventh hour. At the time, Liverpool fans were furious that the deal failed, but they won the Champions League less than a year later.

Georginio Wijnaldum, Jordan Henderson and Fabinho built a formidable relationship in midfield, with the Reds enjoying huge success while Fekir’s career stalled. A similar situation played out with Timo Werner in 2020 as they sought to sign the pole-position striker before Chelsea moved in to pay his £49.4m release clause.

Fans were once again furious that the club had been beaten in the transfer market by a Premier League rival. But Werner’s move to Stamford Bridge proved disastrous as he failed to match the form he displayed in the Bundesliga. With Darwin Nunez,

Luis Diaz, Cody Gakpo and Diogo Jota joining as new options for Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino, Liverpool now boast one of the strongest attacking squads in European football. It remains to be seen what will happen to Bellingham this summer and whether Liverpool will end up regretting not choosing the midfielder.

He is undoubtedly a world-class talent, but Liverpool have shown in the past that they are more than capable of coping with other options. And if FSG’s about-face proves successful, the Bellingham transfer saga could prove to be a distant memory.
