Liverpool is on sale!

In England, the sale of Liverpool is making the headlines this morning. The Daily Express puts up the asking price of the current owner John Henry: about 4 billion pounds, or 4.6 billion euros. This amount is similar to the recent sale of Chelsea, which was simply a world record for a sports team. On Tuesday, the news also made the front page of the Daily Telegraph with a rather sobering headline: "For sale". The Times also reported that one of Europe's best teams was on the market, as did the Daily Star! But the tabloid calls the owner a "hoover" about the handsome capital gain he could make by selling Liverpool, which he bought for £300m in 2010. According to the Daily Mail, the recent sale of Chelsea is one of the reasons why the Reds have been put on the market. John Henry, the current owner of the Reds, expects to make a huge profit by selling his club! The failure of the Super League, which was the dream of the owners, is another reason for the sale. Liverpool could remain under American ownership if the media is to be believed, as the Ricketts family, the owners of the Chicago Clubs baseball franchise, have expressed an interest in the club.

Some exciting draws for the Champions League

Two big games will take place in February. Liverpool will face Real Madrid for a remake of last year’s final. And PSG is opposed to Bayern Munich for a big clash. Chelsea had a moderate draw, as the Blues will face Borussia Dortmund. The Germans are fourth in the Bundesliga. Travelling to Signal Iduna Park is always dangerous, but the Blues can do it!

RB Leipzig - Manchester City

Club Bruges - Benfica

Liverpool - Real Madrid

AC Milan - Tottenham

Eintracht Francfort - Naples

Borussia Dortmund - Chelsea

Inter - Porto

PSG - Bayern Munich

How about the Blues?

Faced with an offensive problem, Graham Potter has asked his managers to recruit at least one striker during the next Mercato. It was in this context that the Blues board, at the request of the former Brighton coach, put the name of Martin Terrier to the Chelsea recruitment team. Like Leandro Trossard (Brighton), the Stade Rennais striker is quite versatile. A versatility appreciated by Graham Potter. Last season, Martin Terrier scored 21 goals and provided 4 assists in Ligue 1, and this season he has already scored 11 goals and provided 4 assists in all competitions. It's not necessary to say that they will have to bring out the heavy artillery to convince Stade Rennais to let their 25-year-old striker go. It should cost at least around £45M.
