The Reds had been linked to names of superstars including Kylian Mbappe and Timo Werner, the two players who have discussed the club in recent months.
“Liverpool have been a Premier League machine this season,” said Mbappe. They made victory easy, but the truth is, it is never easy.
“Performances like the ones they’ve had don’t just happen. To be as ruthless as they have been would come from a lot of hard work training and having a very good manager. “
Werner added: “Yes, I know Liverpool are the best team in the world right now.
“When you are linked to this team it makes you very proud, but in this case it’s a pleasure, but I know Liverpool have a lot of good players.
“I have to improve and learn a lot more to get to this level and play it. “
But this summer could come and go without happening for Liverpool due to the financial crisis inflicted on each club.
Liverpool are facing a shortfall of at least £ 100 million over the next 12 months, which means that an agreement for Mbappe or Werner is not being considered at this time.
The Reds are not willing to pay more than £ 30 million for Werner, while RB Leipzig refuses to sell the German for less than its £ 50 million release clause.
Leipzig CEO Oliver Mintzlaff recently announced, “It won’t cost less. We will not sell a player below their value if they are under contract for more than a year.
“In general, we always ask the question: can we replace a player if we sell him for less than his market value? “
Mbappe would cost Liverpool even more, and for this reason, a transfer is not planned.
The Reds could generate money to sign this summer by selling players.
Xherdan Shaqiri, Harry Wilson and Marko Grujic were worth £ 60 million before the coronavirus crisis and were all ready to be sold.
But their values have since dropped considerably, with the Reds unlikely to budge any of them due to tightening of the purse strings by other clubs.
