News – Liverpool ‘first’ in Premier League to sign £64million a year star

As per today’s version of Record (news image provided below) the Lions are preparing for the departure of the wanted duo and are looking to improve the central defense.

Record report Liverpool are one of the clubs who have followed the Portuguese and the Ivorian and in some cases, ‘even face-to-face’ meetings have been called, which usually ‘precede proposals’.

Neto, 35, and Coates, 33, are veterans and apart from Liverpool, the likes of Chelsea, Man United, Arsenal, Newcastle and Real Madrid are also interested in Inacio and Diomande.

Therefore, the Liga Nos leaders are preparing to react because in not too distant future, they expect the ‘possible sale of one or even both players’.
