Liverpool Close In On Record-Breaking Transfer Signing
The Reds will be looking to try and challenge for the Premier League title next season after their fourth-placed finish last term. The report claims that Liverpool have made a bid of £62m, with £53m being offered up front and the rest being made up in add-ons.

"In all seriousness he's been great, he told me what a fantastic football club it is and he was certain I was going to enjoy my time here", Grant submitted.

There is no sign of Alexis Sanchez after visa issues prevented him from entering the country, while new signing Fred has still not joined up with the squad.

Sanchez arrived at Old Trafford in January in a swap deal which saw Henrikh Mkhitaryan move in the opposite direction, but scored only three goals in 18 appearances in all competitions.

The club revealed that "a personal administrative issue" had prevented the forward from travelling to the U.S., while it's since been reported by the Times that Sanchez was denied a visa due to a previous tax fraud conviction from his time in Spain.
