DONE DEAL! -Jose Enrique claims Bayern Munich star is joining Liverpool and deal is done
Jose Enrique, a former Liverpool player, has inadvertently claimed that the Reds had already made a deal with a buddy of his who plays for Bayern Munich.
When the Reds were eliminated from the Champions League against Real Madrid, it is fairly obvious that Jurgen Klopp has to enhance the team in strategic areas.
Given that they recently won the Premier League and the Champions League, Liverpool will finish the 2022–23 season without any hardware, which is unacceptable for a team.
Quite how much the German will have to spend in the summer window isn’t known at this stage, though if the team are to be improved, it’s a safe bet that such talent won’t come cheap.
Intriguingly, Enrique named one player who, he claimed, Liverpool have already done a deal for.
Speaking on his YouTube channel, a conversation detailed by The Boot Room, the Spaniard named Bayern’s Ryan Gravenberch as the player that will ply his trade at Anfield next season.
“This player is ours amigo, Gravenberch,” he said.
“[…] Amigo, it’s the same agent as me! Team Raiola, amigo we had a meeting not long ago in London, this is our player.”
It prompted a quick riposte from his co-host, who said: “Be careful, you’re on live.”
If Enrique has let the cat out of the bag, it could cause huge problems for both Liverpool and Bayern.
Whilst it could be expected that the groundwork for summer deals is being done in the lead up to the window, announcing a deal before the window is actually open isn’t good form.
