If Jurgen Klopp pulls off his absolute dream transfer, then Liverpool would essentially be gifting Man City a free £8m – Not that they need anymore cash…

Liverpool have started off the season well. Although some recent results haven’t gone their way, Jurgen Klopp’s men still sit fourth in the Premier League heading into the international break, just a point behind Man City.

Speaking of their former title rivals Man City, Liverpool have a serious conundrum to decipher before committing to their transfer plans. See, the main target who Jurgen Klopp would like to sign is a former Citizen, meaning City could get around £8m via a sell-on clause if the Reds complete their transfer.

Liverpool could gift Man City £8m by signing Leroy Sane

According to a report from the Mirror, Liverpool’s primary transfer target is Leroy Sane of Bayern Munich, with the Reds willing to smash their transfer record to sign him. In the event that Mo Salah jets off to Saudi Arabia, which is a real possibility, then Liverpool will attempt to sign Sane, meaning that Man City will benefit from their sell-on clause, essentially gifting Man City free money. But as the old saying goes, when needs must.

Sane is an exceptional footballer and he has plenty of experience in the Premier League, being one of the best Man City wingers in recent history. Developing under the tutelage of some of the best managers and players, Leroy Sane would come to Liverpool with plenty of promise, ageing at 27 years old.

Sane is at the peak of his career, so there has never been a better time to replace him. From Jurgen Klopp’s perspective, Sane is his dream signing because he is essentially a like-for-like replacement for the superstar Mohamed Salah.
