Barcelona make ‘huge-money offer’ for Liverpool star as ‘silly money’ Mount claim is mad

3 Min Read

Barcelona have made a ‘huge-money offer’ to Roberto Firmino ahead of the summer as they look to sign him on a free transfer, according to reports.

There were reports in early March that the Brazilian had decided to leave on a free transfer in the summer after a ‘good chat’ with Jurgen Klopp.

And his agent Roger Wittmann then confirmed the day after that Firmino would be departing Anfield following eight seasons at the Premier League club.

“Our plan for the next couple of weeks – this is the plan of Roberto – is to show the manager and Liverpool finally again the best version of him to say goodbye. This is what he wants to do,” Wittmann told Football Insider.

“He has no clue what that means for him in the near future. He told us during the whole phase when we negotiated, ‘I don’t want to talk to anybody else, there’s no need to do that’. He said it was a decision with the club.

“This was the first time in my life he’s a free agent player and he said there was no need to talk to others! So he’s not motivated by other clubs or by financial terms – far away from that.

“The club gave him the time as well, no pressure. And he never started to compare asking us to talk to different clubs. For us [it would be] easy but this was not his intention, it was just to find his own way. This is so far away from this normal business, believe me!”

And now Football Insider claim that Barcelona have made a ‘huge-money offer’ to Firmino ‘as he prepares to choose his next club’ after a trophy-laden spell at Liverpool.

Firmino won the Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup, League Cup, Community Shield, FIFA Club World Cup and UEFA Super Cup during his time at Anfield and it is understood that he ‘also has a lucrative offer on the table from Champions League holders Real Madrid’.

Football Insider adds that speculation claiming the Liverpool forward has decided on a move to a Spanish club are ‘wide of the mark’.

There have been reports of offers from Saudi Arabia and Turkey as Firmino looks ahead to his future away from Liverpool, where he has provided 11 goals and five assists this season over 33 matches in all competitions.
