Liverpool keen on hijacking Man United’s transfer as Arne Slot aims to solve midfield problems…



Liverpool is eager to disrupt Manchester United’s plans as Arne Slot looks to address midfield concerns.


The Reds are actively seeking new talent in the transfer market this summer to bolster their squad and improve upon their third place finish in the Premier League.


Additionally, they aim to compete at a higher level in European competitions next season.


Arne Slot’s arrival at the club has prompted Liverpool to fully support the new manager in making necessary changes to the squad by introducing new players.


According to reports from Teamtalk, Liverpool is prepared to thwart Manchester United’s pursuit of Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Manuel Ugarte.


The report indicates that Slot is of the opinion that the Merseyside club struggled to find a suitable replacement for defensive midfielder Fabinho, highlighting the need for reinforcement in that specific area to enhance the team’s performance.


Last season, Liverpool tried to lure the defensive midfielder to Anfield, but he opted to join Paris Saint-Germain instead after departing Sporting CP.


Despite Jurgen Klopp’s signing of Wataru Endo, the midfielder has not had a significant impact at Anfield, underscoring the Reds’ requirement for higher-quality players in that position.


With Casemiro potentially leaving the club this summer, Manchester United are considering a move for Ugarte to fill the void as a defensive midfielder, aiming to secure a player who can disrupt opposition attacks and provide defensive cover.


Liverpool has the upper hand in the race against Man United.


The decision of the Uruguayan midfielder to play in the Champions League next season, a privilege only offered by Liverpool, could heavily influence his choice.


Ugarte is tied to PSG for another four years, and the French champions are expected to ask for a substantial transfer fee to let him go.


Despite joining PSG just last summer, the club is now open to a new direction, with the approval of the PSG boss for the player to depart.
