Liverpool have been targetting a defensive midfielder since ages now. The void was created by Jordan Henderson in the mid line when he left the club. Moreover, his successor, Fabinho, also left for the middle East. The Reds haven’t been able to get a proper number 6 since then. However, they were targeting the Brazilian youngster, Andre Trindade of Fluminense in the summer transfer window. But the youngster did not leave Brazil. Fluminense wanted to keep him for the Copa Libretadores. As per the expectations, the Brazilian club won the Copa Libretadores after defeating Boca juniors last week. However, something interesting has been happening post that final.Liverpool target Andre Trindade has now attracted a new intrest from the Red Devils, Manchester United.
In the meanwhile,Liverpool have slowed down their pursuit of Andre after arrival of Ryan Gravenberch. They are preferring to develop the Dutch youngster in the mid line. The most common cause of this could be the delay in Andre’s arrival. The Brazilian midfielder will play in the Club world cup for Fluminense. Only after that is he going to get some concrete offers from Europe.
Where could Liverpool target Andre Trindade be heading to?
As per the liverpoolworld, the 22 year old is now becoming a hot topic of interest in the premier league. Andre Trindade was already being chased by Arsenal and Fulham alongside Liverpool. But the most recent reports of him being linked to Manchester United is something that looks feasible. Reason being? The Red Devils are searching for a replacement for Casemiro. They also don’t have a specialised number 6 like Liverpool. But , unlike Liverpool, they don’t even have options like Gravenberch to fill the space in that particular area in the midfield.
Furthermore, the player is yet to play the club World Cup final. We’re more than sure that he’s going to attract more offers after that match as well.
