Real Madrid Unlikely to Sign Andy Robertson from Liverpool
A recent claim by journalist Rudy Galetti suggests that Real Madrid is unlikely to complete a transfer for Andy Robertson from Liverpool. It was reported on Wednesday that Liverpool would only sanction his exit for a fee well in excess of £40 million. However, it seems like Real Madrid have no chance of getting a transfer over the line for Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson.
£10 Million Signing for Liverpool in 2017
Andy Robertson, whose signing for £10 million (BBC Sport) in 2017, has been a mainstay for Liverpool since then and has established his reputation as arguably the best player in his position in the world. However, murmurs about an exit began as Robertson’s stock has fallen this season, and Los Blancos were desperate to find an upgrade for Ferland Mendy.
No Talks between Real Madrid and Liverpool
Despite all of this, a transfer to Real Madrid is not in the cards for Andy Robertson, with journalist Rudy Galetti claiming that there have been ‘no talks’ to date between the club and Liverpool. The Scottish captain is still considered a ‘key player’ by Jurgen Klopp, heading into next season.
Selling Andy Robertson Would be Foolish for Liverpool
While Andy Robertson has been miles off his brilliant best this season, sanctioning a transfer to Real Madrid would have been an absurd decision from Liverpool. Form is not always the barometer of a player’s quality and world-class performers are allowed to have dips in performances, as seen with the fall and rise of Trent Alexander-Arnold.
Robertson Widely Hailed for his Completeness
Since joining the Merseyside-based side, Robertson has been widely hailed for his completeness, both in attack and in defence. With Liverpool expected to strengthen in the transfer market this summer, as well as players likely to recapture their form, letting Robertson go would be a daft decision, as he could well reclaim his throne as the best in the world next campaign.
In conclusion, with ‘no talks’ between Real Madrid and Liverpool regarding Andy Robertson, it seems unlikely that the Scottish captain will be transferring anytime soon. Robertson remains a key player for Liverpool, and it would be foolish to let someone of his caliber go just because of a dip in form. Liverpool should focus on strengthening their team in the transfer market instead of allowing their best players to leave.
