Liverpool may be in line to earn additional funding this summer as a result of Manchester United.
If the most recent transfer rumors that have surfaced this week are to be believed, that is. A wide range of players who appear to be interested are still being linked to the Reds as potential new additions.
But it’s not just Liverpool that is dominating the gossip columns; Man United, another one of their fiercest rivals, is also being linked to players. And those from Anfield will recognize the most recent.
Reports from Serbian news outlet Telegraf have claimed that Man United are interested in signing Marko Grujic this summer. It has also been reported that AC Milan have also joined the race to sign the Porto midfielder.
The report goes a step further by claiming that contact has already been made between “intermediaries” and interested clubs. It has also been stated that United are “serious” about signing the former Liverpool midfielder.
Grujic signed for Liverpool in January 2016, before officially moving to Anfield a few months later for the 2016/17 season. He was Jurgen Klopp’s first signing at Anfield, with the Reds agreeing a £5.1m deal with Red Star Belgrade.
However, things did not go fully to plan for the midfielder. Grujic would have loan spells with Cardiff City, Hertha Berlin and Porto, before the move became permanent in the summer of 2021. Liverpool banked £10.5m from the Portuguese club, and struck an agreement which could help them in the future.
Liverpool also agreed that a 10 per cent sell-on clause was included as part of the deal. It is likely that would apply only to any profit on the £10.5m which was paid by Porto nearly two years ago.
