The reason why Moises Khedira chose Chelsea over Liverpool has been revealed.
The British publication ‘Evening Standard’ reported on May 5 (KST) that “Kaysedo’s agent, Manuel Sierra, admitted that Liverpool was a more stable club to sign for. Liverpool’s late transfer offer took them by surprise. He chose Chelsea because they had been promising him for a long time.”
Brighton took the league by storm last season. At the beginning of the season, manager Graham Potter left for Chelsea and Roberto De Jervi took over. The Seagulls finished the season in sixth place and qualified for the UEFA Europa League (UEL) for the first time in the club’s history.
At the center of the Brighton surge was Kaysedo. Kaysedo’s biggest strength is his work rate. A classic box-to-box midfielder, his tireless stamina allowed him to be a force in both the offense and defense. He can also play on the flanks. Last season, when Brighton had gaps in their flanking defense, Kaysedo stepped up to the plate.
Chelsea wanted him from the start of the transfer window, but the deal fell through due to the price tag. Brighton demanded £100 million (approximately $164.6 billion) for the player. This was different from what Chelsea had offered. That’s where Liverpool came in. The Reds were missing Fabinho, Jordan Henderson, and James Milner in their midfield. They were looking to strengthen their midfield.
Liverpool’s asking price for Caido was £110 million ($181.1 million). This was higher than Brighton’s asking price. According to the BBC, “Liverpool’s £100 million transfer fee for Caido has been cleared by Brighton, meaning the player is free to undergo a medical.”
It looked like Kaysedo was headed to Liverpool. But there was a twist. Kaysedo was only thinking about a move to Chelsea. European soccer transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano wrote on social media that “Kaysedo informed Liverpool that he wanted to join Chelsea. He has decided to keep his word and only accept a transfer to Chelsea if personal terms are agreed.” 메이저사이트
In response, Chelsea pulled out the £115 million ($189.93 billion). In less than half a year, it has become the highest transfer fee in Premier League (PL) history. The previous record was £107 million for Enzo Fernandez, who joined Chelsea last winter.
Sierra revealed that he had been debating between Liverpool and Chelsea until just before the transfer. “The offers from Liverpool and Chelsea were similar in every way,” Sierra said. When Liverpool’s offer arrived, Brighton were asked to give Chelsea time to respond. Chelsea offered more than Liverpool and he went to Chelsea because he had been committed to them for a long time. Liverpool had always been interested in Caicedo, and then they withdrew their offer, so I was surprised when they suddenly showed up,” he said.
“It was very complicated. Jürgen Klopp
