Football Transfers claims that Liverpool will not be able to sign Manuel Ugarte during the next summer transfer window. The Reds are not prepared to pay the €60 million required to exercise his release clause. Chelsea and Aston Villa have received a lift from Liverpool’s decision.
Manuel Ugarte had his early education at City Park in Ciudad de la Costa. He then attended and graduated from the CA Fenix Academy in his native country. However, from January 2021 to August 2021, he became a major star for Famalicao. And since joining Sporting CP in August 2021, the Uruguayan international has made tremendous strides.
The 22-year-old has been a mainstay for Sporting over the last two seasons. He is rapidly becoming a major player for Portugal in international competition. Nearly 100 times, Ugarte has played for the Portuguese club, contributing one goal and three assists. And his development has piqued the interest of Premier League clubs like Chelsea, Liverpool, and Aston Villa.
Liverpool will not go for Manuel Ugarte this summer because they are unwilling to pay the €60 million asked by Chelsea and Aston Villa
Liverpool moved swiftly to sign Ugarte, negotiating with his representative throughout the course of the summer to finalize a contract. Given that James Milner, Naby Keita, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will all be leaving Anfield this summer, the Reds’ interest in the young midfielder is logical. As an added bonus, Ugarte may prove to be a significant improvement over Fabinho.
Liverpool will not pursue Ugarte this summer because they do not want to pay his €60 million release clause. That may not be a deal breaker for the other clubs interested in him, such as Chelsea. Since Todd Boehly became a co-owner of the Blues, the team has gained a reputation for spending extravagantly. Since Mateo Kovacic’s future at Stamford Bridge is uncertain, Ugarte is an attractive option.
The Reds are not a threat to Chelsea or Aston Villa in their pursuit of Ugarte
In my opinion, Chelsea should spend the reported €60 million to sign Ugarte. However, the same holds true for Aston Villa, who are willing to shell out big money to bring in the players they want. However, the Midlands club’s interest in the 22-year-old seems puzzling. Liverpool is not a threat to Chelsea or Aston Villa in their pursuit of Ugarte. Whether or not either club is willing to pay the Uruguayan international’s reported €60 million price tag this summer remains to be seen.
Liverpool is interested in acquiring the services of Jacob Ramsey. Many teams are interested in signing the 21-year-old midfielder because of his outstanding play this season. Ramsey is being considered as a potential addition to the midfield for the Merseyside club. The 21-year-old has been an Aston Villa fan and player since he was a little boy. He worked his way through the club’s system and is now a crucial cog in the first unit’s machinery. In addition, Ramsey has been on fire thus far this season.
