There has been a lot of talk about Christian Benteke and his imminent arrival at Melwood. We have gone through all the various ITK’s phases, right up to the point where we know for a fact that Liverpool have offered Aston Villa 32.5 Million which has triggered Benteke’s release clause.
Now I use the term know for a fact rather loosely, because the club itself has said not a single thing about any of our transfers, until they have been done. Hooray for the good old Liverpool Way. But if reliable sources are to be believed, it is about as a sure thing as one gets in the transfer market. So where is the announcement?
Well if sources are to be believed, it is meant to be done right now, or tomorrow, or by the end of the week. But it is all done, except for the leaning of course, which just so happens to be the moment we all know for a fact that it has been done.
Leaning photos or it never happened!
So what do we do now, while we wait?
Can we maybe have a look at Liverpool train in Malaysia? Or better still, actually watch them play a friendly against a side that has been decimated by some sort of political intervention? Well, if I was you, I might just have a read of these awesome stats about how good Benteke actually is by Andrew Beasley . And if you are still looking for things to do, you could always watch Benteke score goals to a really bad techno soundtrack.
Either way, I’m pretty certain that it won’t be long now.
