    You can't compare that!

    Haaland was easily worth double what City paid cos of his £55m release clause. Bellingham's contract doesn't have a release clause.

    Pretty sure Haaland had something in his contract about fees, they got about 100 million for Sancho.

    Bellingham to Liverpool I'd still say is most likely. They need legs in midfield so he'd be guaranteed to be the main man and I think he'd clearly fit, and love, playing under Klopp. It relies on Liverpool picking up a bit (which they will) and their owners being willing to sanction spends whilst looking to sell (which they will).

    Sadly I also think he is Liverpool bound. 100m plus addons. He’s 19/20 so he has years ahead of him.

    They can literally build a team around him.

    Hmmm sadly it doth make sense, Henderson on way out and they need replacement and will spend big.

    No, I think he’s pretty well off. He gets paid an absolute fortune every week.

    Harrison is an improvement on Murphy but wouldn’t have him in place of any of the others we are currently playing. Woefully inconsistent. You only have to read Leedsfans opinion of him to realise he is not the level we should be looking at.

    He's already got one foot in newcastle and Leeds fans were loving him until a dip in form, but that's fans these days. He's a very good player and would be great addition imo.

    I’m going to regret this potentially. But I’ve heard a rumour that we are signing Maddison.

    Aye but you started that rumour :1980_boogie_down:

    I’d love Maddison like, he would instantly improve our whole set up and he’d slot straight in. We just need to get ASM firing on the left like Howe has got
    MIggy doing on the other side for the 2nd half of the season and with Isak coming back we can hopefully make a big push for keeping our top 4 spot

    At the risk of sounding like Chaos, I think you lot are going to mighty disappointed if you think we're about to spend big in Jan, if we do anything I reckon it will be the young Brazilian Santos and possibly a small fee (£15m) for Marcus Thuram.

    Ha I wish I had. I have family down south. The talk amongst the LCFC fans is that he’s had his head turned.

    The LCFC fans reckon he’s gone in January and that it’s us that have got him.

    Can’t believe it personally myself.

    If we do then great, but that's not what those controlling the club have said. They have no intention of a Jan spend to secure CL as they are delighted at the natural progression. My guess is a couple of smaller fee purchases in Jan and a larger spend in the summer with a new sponsor and kit supplier announced.

    I've been the most positive poster on here for years now. Never been underwhelmed.

    Just a casual attempt at gaslighting the entire board:)
