Real Madrid would pay £150m for Liverpool star, club chairman claims

Real Madrid would pay £150million for Liverpool full-back Trent Alexander-Arnold, according to a club chairman.

Alexander-Arnold is widely regarded as one of the best full-backs in world football, though has suffered a dip in form this term.

Liverpool have struggled to emulate the success of last term, where they were within two matches of winning an unprecedented quadruple.

While Alexander-Arnold’s passing range and technical prowess have helped him recreate the right-back position, his defensive ability often comes into question.

Nevertheless, the Reds right-back would still fetch a massive fee according to one club chairman.

Alexander-Arnold for 150m?

According to Peterborough chairman and Liverpool fan Darragh MacAnthony, Real Madrid would be willing to spend £150 million for Alexander-Arnold.

While assessing England’s squad ahead of the World Cup MacAnthony: “That England team could be as good as any team. Forget about the deficiencies at the back.

“They can still name a John Stones, who is a £60 million player, Harry Maguire, forget the form, he’s an £80 million player.

“Trent Alexander-Arnold – Real Madrid would pay £150 million for him tomorrow.”

He added in his conversation with The Hard Truth podcast: “The only area I’m not confident is about is left-back, but you could play Trippier over there and he’s playing great for Newcastle.”

With an injury sustained by Chelsea full-back Reece James and doubts over the fitness of Manchester City full-back Kyle Walker, Alexander-Arnold has a chance to start for England.

However, Newcastle United's in-from Kieran Trippier is also vying for a right-back berth. At present, it’s uncertain who will start for England’s opening game against Iran next Monday.
