Liverpool Set to Miss Out on Manuel Ugarte with PSG


Liverpool’s pursuit of midfielder Manuel Ugarte has hit a roadblock, as reports suggest that Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) is on the verge of securing a deal for the talented youngster. This development comes as a significant blow to Jurgen Klopp and his plans to revamp his squad during the upcoming transfer window. With several midfield departures confirmed by the club, Liverpool had identified Ugarte as a potential addition. However, PSG’s interest and willingness to meet Sporting Lisbon’s release clause have seemingly put them in pole position to secure the player’s services.

Ugarte’s Emergence and Liverpool’s Interest

Manuel Ugarte has emerged as a promising midfield talent and has attracted attention from top clubs across Europe. Liverpool was among the clubs keen on acquiring his signature, with Klopp recognizing the need for reinforcements in the middle of the park. The Reds had identified Ugarte as a more cost-effective alternative to other midfield targets they were pursuing.

PSG’s Advances and Preferred Destination

Recent reports have indicated that PSG is in advanced negotiations with Ugarte and could be on the brink of securing his services. Despite interest from Liverpool and Arsenal, the allure of playing in the French capital is said to be the midfielder’s preferred destination. PSG’s readiness to meet Sporting Lisbon’s release clause, rumored to be around €60 million, has likely played a significant role in tilting the scales in their favor.

Liverpool’s Alternative Target

While missing out on Ugarte is undoubtedly disappointing for Liverpool, the club seems determined to bolster its midfield options. Recent reports suggest that the Reds are closing in on a deal for Brighton midfielder Alexis Mac Allister. The Argentine has impressed during his time on the south coast, catching the attention of Liverpool’s recruitment team. With the pursuit of Borussia Dortmund’s Jude Bellingham no longer a priority, Mac Allister has emerged as the primary target for Klopp’s side.

Liverpool’s hopes of securing Manuel Ugarte’s signature have been dealt a blow, with PSG reportedly on the verge of signing the talented midfielder. Despite the Reds’ interest and efforts, it appears that Ugarte’s preferred destination is Paris Saint-Germain. This turn of events emphasizes the competitive nature of the transfer market and the challenges clubs face in securing their desired targets. However, Liverpool remains determined to strengthen its midfield and has shifted its focus to Brighton’s Alexis Mac Allister. The summer transfer window promises further excitement and surprises as clubs vie for their preferred signings.
