The Liverpool Story- It has been confirmed by Marca that La Liga champions Barcelona have now made signing full-back Junior Firpo, a priority. The Catalan giants are focused to bring him to the Nou Camp, as they deem him a long-term successor to Spaniard Jordi Alba. The Spanish giants are keen on winning the Champions League once again and are trying to buy players who will help them do that soon, as well as go for the long-term development of the team.

Manager Ernesto Valverde is determined to sign the right kind of players who can help his team achieve the goal of winning Europe’s top cup competition. That is, after reaching the semi-finals last term. They lost out to Liverpool in the second leg at Anfield after an emphatic first leg 3-0 win. The team was really poor and deserved to go home empty-handed.

The Story About The Liverpool Target And The Latest Update From Barcelona

With that being said, they are now determined to sign this star. It could mean bad news for Jurgen Klopp and the Premier League giants. They were themselves keen to bring him in. The 22-year-old superstar is quite a talent and is wanted by a host of clubs. Liverpool is also looking to add yet another superb left-back to their ranks. That is after the signing of Andy Robertson back in 2017.

However, with Barca looking to get the deal done as soon as possible, the other clubs will have to push hard. That is if they wish to actually be contenders to bring him in. Firpo at present has a €50m release clause in his current contract. The Mundo Deportivo suggests that the Nou Camp based side are willing to offer Betis, Miranda in a player-plus-cash bid to get the deal done.

This could woo their Spanish rivals to give up the player rather easily and accept their offer. Rather than wait for a proposal from England (which may or may not come). The Echo has further added that the Merseyside outfit actually has no interest in signing the player. Whether that is a realistic claim or not, is up to the reader.

Which Team Will Eventually Sign This Star With A Lot Of Interest Coming In For Him?

The main thing to understand here is that Barca is looking to offload some more players, after signing Antoine Griezmann from Atletico Madrid. They have ambitions of bringing in Neymar Jr. back from Paris Saint-Germain and for that purpose need to offload some of their surplus stars.

Keeping that in mind, it will be interesting to see which stars are let go of by Valverde and co. They will look to make a strong statement in Spain and Europe. They have won the league last term. The management will want to defend it once again now. While they hope to win the Champions League title as well.

Zidane has made his return to Real Madrid at the end of the previous season. The way he and Perez have signed players, they are not ready to take things easy. Only time will tell which of the two clubs have brought in the right kind of stars. They will look to climb to the top of the European throne once again.

Los Blancos will also want to win the Champions League. However, Liverpool and Barcelona will have something to say about that for sure. Let’s wait and watch!!
