Thompson says Alexis Sanchez to Liverpool is a done deal

By 25 June 2014 11:37

Former Liverpool defender Phil Thompson was on this morning and spoke about the Luis Suarez bite incident, the England performance and mentioned a name on everyone's lips at the moment, Alexis Sanchez.

According to Thompson the Sanchez transfer from Barcelona is a deal done, whether this relates to the Suarez situation or not remains to be seen but it could mean some genuine good news for Liverpool fans.

Thompson said on the Breakfast show this morning: "Even just yesterday I had things from people, newspaper guys with their ear very close to the ground at Liverpool, saying that the Sanchez deal is actually done".

He went on to tie this to the Luis Suarez situation saying:" Will it now angle for them to ease Luis Suarez out of Liverpool?, it looks that way."

Depending on what happens with an impending FIFA investigation Liverpool could look to offload the Uruguayan to Spain with Barcelona a likely destination.

The signing of Sanchez would somewhat soften the blow but if Liverpool decide to stand behind Suarez and add the Chilean to their ranks the reds would have a powerful attacking line for next season.
