Should Luis Díaz Be Sold in the Summer…?

When you start considering the pros and cons of selling an elite level player in their prime, you can be pretty sure that the regeneration of the football club is going well. A mere twelve months ago, this Liverpool squad looked tired and shorn of its previous ferocious intensity, which amazingly was recreated against Atalanta on Thursday. I am not going to get more distressed by a 0-3 loss at Anfield, as several factors played a part in that horrendous performance. What I am writing about here is part of what will be built for the next manager, one whose name will be revealed in just a few weeks’ time. The consensus is that Rúben Amorim will eventually be the man unveiled as the successor to the legendary German coach, which has produced several theories on future systems and the current squad members that may suit the perceived Portuguese manager’s ideals.

Age – 27-years-old DOB – 13/01/1997

Why Sell an Important First Team Player…?

Despite starting like a tornado of attacking intent upon his January arrival in 2022, the former Porto flying winger has been both unpredictable and inconsistent for at least half his Anfield stay, whilst playing a position that may not suit his skillset under the next regime. The current set up at Sporting Lisbon is very much a 3-4-2-1 system of play, that incorporates two loose attacking assets behind one central striker. The fact that width will be serviced by overloading wing backs makes the dribbling wing play of the reds 47-cap Columbia international almost redundant. As the forthcoming summer transfer window flexes its muscles, rumours have been swirling that PSG may target Liverpool’s gifted number 7, in the likely event that their world class forward, Kylian Mbappé, will land at Real Madrid at the close of this campaign. Under the leadership of the reds new CEO, Michael Edwards, a decision may be taken to extract a huge profit on the enigmatic wide-man, especially with an expected stagnation in the market limiting the ability to move on other players for good value. I wrote recently how I believed that Liverpool’s returning loanee, Fábio Carvalho, could offer an immediate answer and replacement opportunity in the event that Luis was sold. The positional expertise of the young Portuguese playmaker would absolutely play into the new system of play, despite not being favoured under the current German manager.

I am a fan of Luis Díaz, though if substantial funds could be taken on a man that is not ideal for the future, then it would be worth exploring a sale so that the continued regeneration could flourish. Certain players will have to be moved on at the end of the current era, which makes tough calls a footballing reality. To have a world class negotiator at the helm of this historical club is a blessing to the net phase of the club, therefore, what choices are made, I fully back them to be the correct ones.
