Liverpool is very close to formalizing an agreement for the transfer of Colombian Luis Diaz to Anfield. The Porto winger has consolidated his position as one of the most talented players of last year in Europe, and Jurgen Klopp is quite impressed with Diaz's skills.
Diaz excelled in Porto's 2 encounters with Liverpool in Champions League, and this could not help but fall in the eyes of Klopp, who has approved the figure of 60 million pounds to receive the services of the Colombian. Although the German coach would prefer the summer transfer window for such an operation, the departure of Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah to Afcon could make things difficult for Liverpool.
The termination clause for Diaz's contract is worth milionë 67 million, but Liverpool want to close the deal for less. The striker scored 11 goals and 6 assists for Porto last season, before shining in the Copa America over the summer.
Liverpool rivals Manchester United, meanwhile, have offered Paul Pogba a new contract offer. Under the new contract, the midfielder will benefit a staggering prej 500,000-a-week figure, thus becoming the highest paid player in the history of Premier League.
United's representatives fear they could lose Pogba at zero cost in the summer, as the Frenchman's contract expires at the end of the season. For this reason, according to the new proposal of the "Red Devils", the midfielder will benefit at least 100,000 pounds more than he can earn in other teams in Europe.
According to Sunport, Pogba has not yet decided whether to sign the new contract, but this offer is thought to be the last that the club makes to the Frenchman.
