Report: Club have now decided to sell their ‘exceptional’ player to Liverpool

Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool are getting close to signing Alexis Mac Allister from Brighton and Hove Albion, according to a report in Argentina.

Liverpool need to pay £50m for Alexis Mac Allister

TyC Sports have reported that Mac Allister is “getting closer to finalising” his transfer to Liverpool.

The report has added that Liverpool will have to pay Premier League rivals Brighton £50 million in transfer fees for the Argentina international midfielder, described as “exceptional” by former Seagulls striker Glenn Murray on BBC Sport in April.

TyC Sports have reported that Brighton are aware that Mac Allister wants to leave in the summer transfer window and are now ready to let him join Liverpool if they get £50 million.

Liverpool need players like Mac Allister in the middle of the park in the coming years to get back to the level they were.

Mac Allister is 24 now, and there is every reason to believe that he will get better and improve in the coming years.

Liverpool are having a disappointing season, but manager Jurgen Klopp will be determined for his players to get back to challenging for the Premier League next campaign.

Having done well at Brighton and having won the World Cup with Argentina in Qatar, Mac Allister is ready to take the next step in his club football career and make the move to Liverpool in the summer transfer window.

Liverpool landmark St George’s Hall receives Royal seal of approval

St George’s Hall was reopened by King Charles III in 2007 and has strong Royal links.

The Sovereign’s official monogram consists of his initial ‘C’ and letter ‘R’ for the title Rex – Latin for King – and a crown. It will be revealed to the public at a special organ recital of ‘Eurovision Classics’ on Wednesday, 10 May.

The trustees of St George’s Hall commissioned the artwork to commemorate the accession to the throne of King Charles III. The Grade I-listed structure is one of His Majesty’s favourite buildings, and he officially reopened it in 2007 following restoration work.

Alan Smith, of Liverpool City Council, said: “The hall has a long-standing link with Coronations. The foundation stone of the hall had been laid on 28 June 1838 to commemorate Queen Victoria’s accession to the throne, and now the cypher being in place on the organ for King Charles’s Coronation maintains its Royal link.”

Claire Dove, chair of the Trustees of St George’s Hall, said: “His Majesty has a long-standing role in supporting and championing St George’s Hall, recognised as one of the finest buildings in Europe. It has enabled the trustees to preserve, protect and enhance the history of the iconic hall.”


“More to offer” – Journalist says Man Utd could pip rivals to “absolutely outstanding” 24 y/o

The Brighton star is also wanted by Liverpool this summer.

Manchester United could pip Liverpool to the signing of Brighton star Alexis Mac Allister this summer, according to an update from transfer expert Dean Jones.

Is Mac Allister leaving this summer

The 24-year-old’s future is a big talking point at the moment, with his performances for the Seagulls leading to plenty of interest in him. He is enjoying a brilliant season currently, scoring nine goals in the Premier League and also tasting World Cup glory with Argentina.

On Thursday night, United witnessed the wrath of Mac Allister close up, as his last-gasp penalty proved to be the difference between the two sides at the Amex Stadium. The Red Devils have been linked with a move for the midfielder, as they look at potential additions in the middle of the park this summer.

Liverpool are also right in the mix, however, and at this stage, it looks as though the Argentine could well be plying his trade at either Old Trafford or Anfield next season.

Could Mac Allister join Man United

Speaking to Give Me Sport, Jones suggested that United could be a stronger option for Mac Allister than their rivals this summer, with a move to one of the two clubs looking likely:

“If you look at United, they’ve already won a cup, they are in a cup final, they’re going to be in the Champions League by the looks of it. At the moment, they are the team with a bit more to offer him. Also, they’re in the middle of a rebuild which he can quickly become a part of.”

Mac Allister could be such an effective signing by United at the end of the season, with the Brighton hero someone who looks like a complete midfielder currently. He provides box-to-box energy, scoring goals and defending well – he averages 2.1 tackles per game in the league this season – and he could give United’s midfield an injection of life, with both Casemiro and Christian Eriksen in their 30s, not to mention Bruno Fernandes turning 29 later this year.

Sergio Aguero has lauded his compatriot for being a “very intelligent” player, while journalists hailed him as “absolutely outstanding” during the World Cup. The fact that United look set to promise Mac Allister Champions League football next season gives them a big advantage over Liverpool, so it just depends on whether he has his heart set on one particular club. If not, a switch to Old Trafford could make more sense for him.
