Liverpool turn down ‘The New Neymar’ because of agents’ attitude

Liverpool were closing in on the ‘The New Neymar’ last summer, but decided against it due to outrageous demands from Rodrygo’s representatives.

The 17-year-old is expected to sign for Real Madrid, after Los Blancos tabled a mammoth €45m offer for the starlet, having already secured Vinicius Junior for a similar fee earlier this calendar year.

Marcus Alves of FourFourTwo has tweeted the news to his followers:

Rodrygo has been tearing it up for Santos recently, scoring nine goals in 2018 alone, including a recent hat-trick.

He’s been compared to Neymar as a result, with the PSG superstar graduating from the same club around five years ago.

Rodrygo looks destined for greatness, but if he’s going to upset the apple-cart, he’s not the kind of influence Jurgen Klopp wants in the squad.

We’re surprised Rodrygo wants a Bernabeu switch though, judging by the failure of Martin Odegaard, the Norwegian wonderkid whose failed to make the grade since his 2015 transfer.
