Manchester United has missed out on the chance to sign Ibrahima Konate. It’s been revealed Konate has already agreed to personal terms with Liverpool.

The French defender had a €40million (£34.1m) release clause. Jurgen Klopp has looking to bolster his defensive options after the problems faced in defense this season.

Michael Edwards could leverage his dodgy injury history to get his price tag down to £31 million. Konate has missed 393 days of football since October 2019. Clearly, the club feels as though this isn’t a reason to worry.

Liverpool has agreed on terms with Konate for a while now. Ever since reaching a verbal agreement with the defender before personal terms were agreed.

While there is still a slim chance that the Reds can finish in the top four. The attention has turned to next season. Konate will play an important role in his new team’s chances of success.

Liverpool embarrassed Manchester United by beating them to Konate.

It’s a repeat of the Virgil van Dijk saga when United called Southampton only to be told that he was in Merseyside completing a medical ahead of a £75million move to Liverpool, where he has since won both the Champions League and Premier League.

Konate is one of the most exciting defenders in the world, but he will face competition from Joe Gomez for a starting role. For Liverpool supporters, this is glorious news after the lack of options this season.

We expect Van Dijk and Gomez to return to action next season. Virgil Van Dijk is on his way back already, with the Dutchman aiming to return in time for the Euros.
