“Why haven’t you tried?” – Watch Robert Lewandowski makes honest Thiago admission and also reveals main reasons for joining FC Barcelona after strong Liverpool links

After departing from Bayern Munich for Barcelona, Robert Lewandowski has admitted he communicated with Thiago Alcantara of Liverpool.

Because Bayern Munich saw the Senegal international as the ideal successor for their productive striker, Sadio Mane decided to end his Anfield career this season and Liverpool can partially blame Robert Lewandowski for that.

The Poland international joined Bayern in the summer of 2014 after making his debut in Germany over ten years ago with Jurgen Klopp’s Borussia Dortmund.

And even though he is about to be 34, he has shown no signs of slowing down as he keeps stealing goals for pleasure and is still one of the world’s deadliest finishers.

Robert Lewandowski, who scored 447 goals from 562 games over the course of his 12 seasons in Germany, winning every major award given to him along the way, was understandably eager for a new challenge.

As a result, he forced through a move to Barcelona last month because he had always wanted to play in La Liga.

Lewandowski was rumored to be interested in Liverpool in the past, but the striker ultimately chose Barcelona, and there was never any chance of a reunion with Klopp.

Although his own transfer merry-go-round, which included Mane, was sparked by his own wish to go, there were no ill wills back in Merseyside.

“Guardiola’s philosophy and his style of caring for and managing the team I think basically was Barca at Bayern Munich,” he said.

“Xavi is very similar to Guardiola. They were both ‘6’, they worked together. They think football in the same way.

“With that memory in mind, Barca was the only option for me and it was a great preparation when I was there.

“I didn’t talk to Guardiola before signing. But when I was with him at Bayern it was like a great preparation to get to Barca one day.

“All the staff were Spanish, there were eight Spanish players.

“During that period I had a very good relationship with Thiago and Javi Martinez. Both of them congratulated me when I signed for Barca.

“I’ve always wanted to play in La Liga, live in Spain, see what life is like here. 12 years in Germany is a long time. I achieved everything there.

“I didn’t want to stand in front of the mirror in 12 years and say to myself: ‘Why haven’t you tried?’ There would be a lot of unanswered questions.”

Report: Liverpool could land Chelsea star N’Golo Kante in shocking deal

Liverpool are exploring signing Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante to strengthen their midfield, according to reports.

Liverpool wants to aim to turn around the Reds’ fortunes by bringing N’Golo Kante to Anfield in what would be a spectacular cross-Premier League trade.

That’s according to one report that says that the Merseysiders are looking at the iconic Chelsea midfielder as an option. Kante has been injured all season, following an injury sustained early in the season against Tottenham Hotspur, and is yet to feature under Graham Potter.

But with Liverpool seeking midfield reinforcements – and potentially shelling out for a big rebuild – Kante could be an ingenious solution.

According to Catalan outlet El Nacional, via Football365, Reds boss Jurgen Klopp has made the request to ownership Fenway Sports Group to bring the World Cup winner to Liverpool in the summer.

Kante’s contract expires at the end of the current campaign, and it’s unlikely that Chelsea would renew it. Bringing in Kante for nothing could be a wise option with Liverpool needing to rebuild this summer and a hefty bid for Jude Bellingham rumoured.

However, the 31-year-old has experienced injury problems in the previous two seasons, and since Klopp hasn’t been able to rely on the physical wellbeing of players like Curtis Jones, Naby Keita, Thiago Alcantara, Arthur Melo, Jordan Henderson, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in recent seasons, adding another injury-prone midfielder might not be a good idea.

especially in light of the pay. Kante would not be cheap because he is most likely one of the highest-paid players in the Premier League right now and Kante is valued at €30m by Transfermarkt

After being substituted for goal-scoring Harvey Elliott at the hour mark, our No. 27 began his comeback from injury by finding himself in some precarious positions out wide.

It’s fantastic to see that the Uruguayan is capable of these typically high octave performances since his willingness to run and apply pressure to the defense nearly won the ball back high up the pitch.

Liverpool tipped to agree signing of £21.9million star player before deadline

Liverpool has wasted time during the January transfer window despite knowing how much the team needs a dynamic midfielder.

Paul Robinson, a former goalkeeper for Tottenham, believes the Reds should sign Ryan Gravenberch, a Dutch international, on a late-season loan from Bayern Munich.

The retired England international told Football Insider:

“Gravenberch has not played much this year. He has been a bit-part player at best for Bayern Munich. He has so much potential. Let’s not forget he is still just 20. I think he is a good player from what I’ve seen of him.”

“Perhaps he needs a new manager. He could flourish under somebody like Jurgen Klopp. If Liverpool can get him on loan, why not? It is an area that we all know they need to look at. I would not be against that move.”

Gravenberch is a talented central midfielder, who won multiple league titles with Ajax under the management of Erik ten Hag.

The 20-year-old made direct contributions to 9 goals in all competitions last season, including 7 (2 goals and 5 assists) in the league-championship campaign.

The Dutch Eredivisie giants sold him to Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich in the summer transfer window for a fee of £21.9 million (25 million euros).

However, the youthful midfielder has primarily served as a bench warmer since going to Germany. The Netherlands player has only played 221 minutes in the competition and has yet to start a league game for the Bavarians.

Liverpool transfer news: Reds given Bellingham hope with last-minute deadline deal still possible

With only two days left in the January transfer window in which to complete any late deals and strengthen Jurgen Klopp’s squad for the rest of the season.

There are now only two days left in the January transfer market, so any last-minute dreams that Liverpool might strengthen their team are quickly fading.

By announcing the signing of Cody Gakpo from PSV Eindhoven before the month had even begun, the Reds got the window off to a fast start. They beat out rival Manchester United for the attacker, giving the fan base newfound hope.

However, their form has been awful throughout the entire month of January, and even though it cannot be done in the next 48 hours, the necessity for a renewal in the summer is evident.

Liverpool will do everything in their power to land Bellingham at the end of the season – and they have been handed a morsel of hope in what will surely be a difficult process.

Borussia Dortmund is no pushover when it comes to selling star players; over the last two summers, the club made £73 million and £51 million respectively by offloading Jadon Sancho and Erling Haaland.

Bellingham is being kept this time around in an effort to prevent a repeat, but Fabrizio Romano claims that he is “expected” to go due in large part to the weight of all the interest.

To get him, Liverpool will have to compete with Real Madrid, Chelsea, Manchester United, and probably many other teams.

According to The Daily Mail, the club has been reportedly scouting the rosters of teams like Atletico Madrid, Juventus, and Paris Saint-Germain in the hopes that a last-minute midfielder deal may be made.

Liverpool is content to hold out on making its major acquisitions until the summer, but they are also open to any options that may arise right away.

The likes of Naby Keita, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, and James Milner are all out of contract in the summer, while the loan deal for Arthur Melo will expire too.

Although it appears likely that Liverpool will remain silent in the closing hours of the transfer window, one transaction may still be completed.
