Welcome (2018) Naby Keita

Recommended Posts

Cant see twitter in work, what does it say?

 

Apparently Barcelona bid £75m for Keïta today. Leipzig responded saying that he is currently in Liverpool having his medical.

This might end up being the most inspired move we've made in a long long time.

Aye but the worry is that he's this summer's major signing and the fat lady has sung.

Have they signed yet ? No.

Is it a centre half or midfielder ? No.

 

I'll keep the champagne on ice, thanks.

 

Bit of middle ground between worrying and celebrating you know.

I read that as 'chimpanzee'. It confused the hell out of me.

I'm probably against the grain here but whilst yes it's sensible, yes it's proactive, yes it's good forward planning, all of that, but I can't get terribly excited about a player for next season.

 

Well done to everyone involved, but I've got this season to worry about.

We all knew how it'd have played out with Keita if we hadn't done this. He'd have had exposure in the Champions League and had every big side in Europe, and here, sniffing around. I fully expected a press briefing in March saying we'd moved on to other targets.

 

We've clearly tried hard to get him in this window and failed through no fault of our own. To get this done is a great achievement both from Klopp to convince him and those who've negotiated the deal for us. Positivity for a change.

Thank you for your service.

Assuming there are no CL clauses that's a pretty impressive commitment from Keita. Every chance that he'd have the pick of half a dozen other top clubs next summer. Klopp is some salesman.

fyds going from baffled to sage in 3 minutes. Brilliant.

He's such a bellend on twitter.

 

Anyway... great business. Little bit gutted we have to wait though. Hoping that's assuaged by other deals this week.
