After Liverpool spent £6.5 million on Skrtel two weeks ago, under the new regime you always knew the American owners would try to turn a profit on the transfers, and Momo Sissoko’s deal – worth over £7 million, is likely to go through by the end of the season.
The player is likely to move to Juventus at some stage in the next week according to Benitez:
“We know that they (Juventus) are interested in Momo but we need to wait until the end of the transfer window and we need to be calm,” he added. “There are two Spanish clubs and two Italian clubs also interested in Momo and we will try to do the best for the club.”
When asked if he thought Sissoko would leave this month, Benitez said:
“Yes, I think so. It could be a possibility but it depends on the other teams if they push hard or not.”
If the deal goes through, according to our meticulous calculations, the new owners – who promised ‘substantial’ transfer funding will have handed Rafa a total of £15 million in one calendar year to attempt to wrest the Premiership title back.
And when I say handed – obviously I mean they will have taken a loan out.
Leave our club you pair of leeches.
