Luis Diaz to Barcelona latest

Luis Diaz has been linked with a move to Barcelona this summer. While there’s little indication Liverpool is actively looking to sell the Colombian, he is someone the club could consider cashing in on if the price was right and there was a profit to be made.

It has been widely reported in the Spanish media that the Catalan club is keen on the Liverpool winger as it eyes attacking reinforcements this summer. However, they have no shortage of potential options and their financial situation means they would need to sell in order to buy.

The new Liverpool home shirt for the 2024/2025 season features a chrome yellow pattern design and is a modern take on the legendary ’84 home shirt – a season which saw the Reds become European Champions for the fourth time in Rome and the first English Club to win a treble of major honours. You can buy it now.

It’s now been claimed that a potential deal for Diaz, valued at $80 million by Transfermarkt, could stall because of manager Hansi Flick’s stance. Sport reports that while club chiefs prefer Diaz, Flick is more keen on Nico Williams, himself linked with Liverpool.

Mohamed Salah sends message

Mohamed Salah is likely to be a big story when it comes to the summer transfer window. The Liverpool superstar is out of contract next summer and has long been wanted by teams in the Saudi Pro League.

What happens next is anyone’s guess. Will he sign a new contract? Will he consider a new challenge elsewhere? Will he simply run down his current deal before leaving for free in 12 months’ time?

Whatever the outcome, it appears Salah is ready and raring to go for preseason. He will be back with Liverpool next month as new manager Slot takes charge of the team.

The Egyptian star, sporting a new look with his shaved hair, shared a holiday selfie showing him looking in incredible physical shape, displaying his shredded physique and a six-pack in a message to fans that he is in peak physical condition despite now being 32 years old.
