According to the Mirror, Manchester City have joined Juventus and Bayern Munich in a fight for Liverpool’s Emre Can. With no sign of his contract with Liverpool being extended, Can may be on his way out of the Merseyside club.
All three clubs are rumoured to be ready to make offers for the midfielder. The German will be able to sign a pre-contract with an oversees club in the January transfer window, but Man City will have to wait until the summer.
Either way, the Liverpool midfielder will not be short of offers. Emre Can is a German 23-year-old midfielder, who frequently appears in the Germany national squad. Can is constantly improving as a player and is fast approaching the peak of his career. This would be a big blow to Liverpool if they lose one of their most talented midfielders for nothing.
Juventus have been eyeing up Can for a long time now. The Serie A champions intend to begin formal negotiations in January. Bayern Munich manager Jupp Heyckes recently highlighted Can as a strong player, suggesting that his former club may be looking to re-sign him in the summer.
Man City are the most recent to join the chase. Can briefly played under Mancjesyer City Manager Pep Guardiola four years ago in Munich. Guardiola will be hoping to add the talented midfielder to his top of the league team.
Emre Can is refusing to extend his contract with Liverpool. This could lead to the Red’s losing a £40 million player for nothing. Jurgen Klopp should have acted quicker on this issue if he really wanted Can to stay at Liverpool, now he is heading towards not receiving a penny for the valuable midfielder.
