Three Reasons Why Liverpool Should Go Ahead With This £50m Cash + Player Deal

With reports emerging that Barcelona are prepared to make a massive bid, which includes Alexis Sanchez to tempt Luis Suarez to Barcelona, there is a feeling of inevitableness amongst Liverpool fans that the Uruguayan is indeed on his way out of Anfield. However one bright thing which may come out from this transfer is that Liverpool will get hold of a quality player in Alexis Sanchez and also a lot of cash (£50million). So with the right planning on how to spend the money and Alexis Sanchez, Liverpool might build on the fantastic season they have had this time around. Here at Soccersouls, we take a look as to why Liverpool should sign Alexis Sanchez.

He is just the playmaker Liverpool need:

For all the great results achieved by Liverpool last season, one obvious flaw in the Liverpool set up was kept hidden by the fantastic form of Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge. The fact that Liverpool has no world class playmaker who can actually control the game, stops them from competing with the top teams. Although Coutinho is a playmaker he still does not fall under the bracket of a World Class playmaker and going by Brendan Rodgers’ tactics last season neither does the Liverpool manager consider him world class. With Luis Suarez gone, Alexis Sanchez will just be the creative world class playmaker Liverpool will need to equal or better this season’s fantastic achievements.

A big statement signing:

While Barcelona are offering a massive cash+ player deal for a player, who has been involved in a biting scandal for the third time in his career, it surely is an escape route for the Reds. Suarez has been banned until the end of October, which means Daniel Sturridge has to carry them for the opening half of the season all alone by himself. So why waste an opportunity to get the monkey off your back while you can?

There is no doubting that Alexis Sanchez is world class. You just don’t get to play for Barcelona regularly unless you are truly world class. Even with Luis Suarez probably departing for this deal to take place, it will still be a big statement signing for the club from Merseyside as it means that they pipped rivals Man United and Arsenal for the Chilean’s signature. Luis Suarez is a player who will be moving on no matter what and to get a player of the class of Alexis Sanchez and a bucket load of money will indeed show a statement of intent from the club that Liverpool is moving forward.

Experience of Champions League and the bigger matches:

With 19 goals scored and 10 assists made for Barcelona last season, there is no doubt that despite Barcelona’s poor season, Alexis Sanchez was one of the stand out players for the club. With top level experience, he is just the man along with Steven Gerrard to take the club forward. Having won the Champions League with Barcelona, the Chilean knows everything to know about those big Champions League nights and with Liverpool getting into the Champions League after quite a while, his experience will be crucial. Also the championship mentality that Alexis Sanchez have will help Liverpool cope up with the tougher matches against the bigger clubs.

In fact, if Alexis Sanchez would have been present in Liverpool last season he would probably made sure that the Merseyside did not lose against Chelsea and drew against Crystal Palace. His experience will definitely come in handy for Liverpool the next season with such a vast fixture list.
