Liverpool target Alisson ‘agrees’ Real Madrid deal with one thing to sort out – huge claim
Liverpool have been monitoring Roma goalkeeper Alisson very closely as they seek a world-class replacement for Loris Karius, who was scrutinised after his two howlers in his side’s 3-1 Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid last month.
Reports earlier this week suggested that Jurgen Klopp has abandoned his pursuit of Alisson, with the Serie A outfit demanding more than £70million.
Therefore, Klopp will reassess his options and look elsewhere.
And now according to Spanish paper Mundo Deportivo, Alisson has agreed a deal to join Los Blancos.
However, Roma and Real remain far apart in their valuations, with the La Liga giants offering £48m plus an extra £4.4m in bonus – £20m short of the asking price.
It is said that a deal will go through once both parties settle on a fee.
Allison, who is on World Cup duty with Brazil, had hinted earlier this week he wanted his future sorted before the tournament began.
He said: “I believe that it will all be resolved before the start of the World Cup, or at least that is what I hope.
“To be honest, I’ve left it all in the hands of my agents.
“If it doesn’t get resolved before our first game [of the World Cup], then we’ll talk about it after because during it, my mind is only going to be 100 percent focused on Brazil.”
