'Liverpool willing to pay sixty million for talented midfielder'

Liverpool are looking for some fresh legs in midfield and in their search have turned to Portugal. Manuel Ugarte, a 22-year-old midfielder from Sporting CP, is being eyed to come to Merseyside next summer. For around sixty million euros, the Portuguese top club will allow him to leave. Liverpool, according to Record, have made an opening offer that is lower than the asking price, but reportedly are planning to get too hung up on the financial picture.

Ugarte, who is of Uruguayan descent, has played for Sporting since the summer of 2021, when he came over from Famalicao for 10.5 million euros. So two years later, Sporting can sell the Uruguayan for about six times the purchase price. Although Liverpool's opening bid is lower than sixty million, they will accept the clause should Sporting not want to negotiate. Ugarte could become The Reds' most expensive midfielder, as they also bought Naby Keita for sixty million.

Ugarte has already played 45 games for Sporting, this season. In those he failed to score and manged to deliver only one assist. The youngster was included in Uruguay's squad for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, but did not make a single appearance. He has a contract valid until the summer of 2026 and the sixty million mentioned is his escape clause, which explains why Liverpool are not being too difficult. At Anfield superpower, he could become the successor to James Milner, who is likely to leave for Brighton Hove & Albion.
