Liverpool forces a ‘painful farewell’ as Klopp’s ‘priority’ striker to replace Klopp for 100 million euros is ‘ready to go’

The Real Madrid couple Rodrygo and Federico Valverde.

According to reports, Brazilian international Rodrygo is “ready to leave Spanish giants Real Madrid, amid interest from Premier League club Liverpool”.

Real Madrid paid around 45 million euros to sign Rodrygo from Brazilian side Santos in 2018 and he has become one of the best strikers in the world.

The 22-year-old scored 19 goals and 11 assists in his 57 appearances for Real Madrid in all competitions last season.

The versatile striker has shown he can play in all attacking positions, making 41 appearances last season.

Rodrygo – believed to be worth €100million – has been linked with a surprise move to Liverpool in recent weeks as he is believed to be an ideal replacement for Mohamed Salah.

Liverpool already have plenty of options in attack but will need to recruit a replacement for Salah when/if he leaves the club.

Spanish newspaper Nacional reports that Rodrygo is now “ready to leave Real Madrid” amid growing interest from Liverpool in him.

Jürgen Klopp is reportedly “aware that the risk of losing Salah is really high”, so his “priority” is to recruit a new striker to replace the Liverpool sensation. Rodrygo is said to be ‘their preferred option’ as he has ‘convinced’ Klopp he would be a suitable signing for Liverpool.

The Reds are “ready to tempt” the Brazil international to leave Real Madrid as they would offer him “a much higher salary than he currently has, offer a lot of money to Florentino Pérez to open the doors and guarantee him that he is the best.

Real Madrid would not be able to match this offer as they are likely to sign Kylian Mbappe from PSG next year.

Rodygo’s departure from Real Madrid is said to be “no longer impossible”, especially as the Premier League is a “very attractive destination”.

In several places in the report it is mentioned that Rodrygo is Vinicius Junior’s “best friend” at Real Madrid, so this transfer could mean a “painful farewell” for the latter.
