    For what it's worth, there's no clear note that any bid has come in for Sakho this summer.

    Liverpool have what they want, but it would probably get the ball rolling if a club at least put in an offer that's somewhat decent.

    In this market, if they can't at least submit a 20-22 million bid, with some add ons, what's the point?

    Indeed it's not close.
    In one case, a player is sent to youth teams even though he's at the very least second best defenseman on the team and loves the team as well and forced to be there until he accepts a loan.

    In the other case, a player under contract throws a tantrum for his contract to be breached even though the team is not selling. The team refuses to breach the contract and sends him to the reserves.

    Indeed, not close. Though I do know where the "nonethical" comes from.

    Pool is asking for 30M. For someone they rejected to the youth teams.
    It'd be like asking for a top line player for a defenseman playing in AHL in hockey.

    Makes zero sense.

    Then PSG will pay at least 400M for it.

    Wolfsburg trying to get Malcom, Bordeaux wants 30m. Bordeaux already brought Cafu from Ludogorets as a possible replacement.

    It's definitely the guy that retired a decade ago. He's a mix of Zanetti and Jags.

    Heh never mind. They just took the team photo and Mor was excused because his transfer to Inter is imminent.

    Gonna be funny to see Dembele in the team photo. :laugh:

    Auba's head is concealed. Pretty sure that's him in the second row right above the keepers. Grainier photo from a different angle:

    Seems quite right. He wasn't leaving anyway. The exclusion of Dembele is interesting though.

    Dembele is in the grainier photo I posted as well, but like Auba also obscured in the one you posted. Pretty sure he is in the first row third from the left. The BVB reporter that mentioned that Mor was not in the photo (or the BVB official account which noted his absence)would have presumably also mentioned if Dembele were excluded too.

    I'm not saying that Southampton is in the wrong, because realistically speaking he's under contract and there's no release clause (I think) so they don't have to sell him. I'm happy to see more teams taking this stance to be honest.

    With that said the Sakho and van Dijk situations are not the same at all and I'm not really sure why they're being compared. Sakho is the 3rd best defender on Liverpool, and he would be a nice depth option to have, but the team doesn't want him and Sakho refused to sign for other teams that did bid on him despite knowing he wouldn't play for us anymore. van Dijk would be the best player on Southampton but he doesn't want to play for them anymore and Southampton doesn't want to sell him. It is what it is and Sakho has a right to refuse being sold while Southampton has their right to refuse to sell. Both are within the rights of their contracts but the situations are completely different.

    PSG has offered 140M for Mbappe + bonus up to 30M.

    Because someone said it was unethical to keep a player under contract, while Liverpool's ethics with Sakho are laughable compared to the VD situation.

    No, folks offer dmen playing in the AHL for him even though he's a top line player.

    How are their ethics laughable? They don't want to keep him, he knows this, he refused to be sold to another team, and now other teams won't meet Liverpool's valuation knowing that they won't play him. He made his bed there's not really anything unethical about it (and there's nothing unethical about Southampton keeping vvD either).
