Manchester United target and midfielder for Brighton Alexis Mac Allister is close to agreeing personal terms with Liverpool.
Erik ten Hag is interested in signing Mac Allister before the summer transfer window opens.
The World Cup champion is Ten Hag’s top priority for the midfield, according to a report that was covered by The Peoples Person.
Fabrizio Romano stated earlier today that United will sign a midfielder this summer regardless of what happens with Marcel Sabitzer.
Liverpool was reportedly in advanced talks with Mac Allister’s representatives about a move to Anfield.
The Merseyside club beat United to signing the Argentine, while the Red Devils are currently enmeshed in a takeover.
Ten Hag’s plans are all on hold as a result of the uncertainty surrounding the club’s ownership, and the transfer market is not moving very quickly.
Liverpool appears to have taken advantage of this.
As of right now, according to Romano, “Personal terms are almost agreed between Liverpool and Mac Allister — after project presented in April.”
“Deal not done yet, there are still details left — Pochettino appreciates him.”
The Italian transfer guru continues, “No issues with Brighton — heard there’s fixed price for Alexis’ exit in June.”
Romano’s claim that Mac Allister’s price is fixed is consistent with a previous report that said the Brighton star’s contract includes a “mechanism” to enable a summer departure from the Amex.
The mechanism specifies the conditions for selling Mac Alliser to another club, despite the fact that it is not a standard release clause.
The 24-year-old and Moises Caicedo are likely to receive offers when the window opens, according to Roberto De Zerbi.
Additionally, Mac Allister will play for Liverpool, according to the trustworthy Gaston Edul.
It is shameful that United are losing out to Liverpool, who appear destined to compete in the Europa League, given Mac Allister’s admission that he is eager to join a team that can offer Champions League football.
Even worse, the Glazers are holding the club hostage while attempting to extort as much cash as they can from the bidders.
