How Liverpool beat Tottenham Hotspur against Luis Diaz
Daniel Levy “did everything he could” to sign Luis Diaz for Tottenham Hotspur in January, but a report revealed why Liverpool beat them on the transfer.
according to the athleteHowever, Tottenham have reached agreements with both Diaz and his former club Porto to sign him. That came before he headed into international service, though, so a turn came after that.
During Diaz’s absence, one of his Colombian agents vetoed the move. It was because Porto gave Jorge Mendes the mandate to oversee the Spurs substitution. Diaz’s representative objected.
Meanwhile, Liverpool – who were originally lined up with Diaz in the summer – took their chance to pounce. They did not use Mendes as an intermediary.
When Diaz arrives at Anfield, Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp explained How will he sign the players in January if only they are the people the club is interested in over the summer – and Diaz agrees with that strategy.
Incidentally, Klopp’s presence was a factor in persuading Diaz to join Liverpool. Moreover, the fact that they have the UEFA Champions League and Tottenham did not help.
But the report claims Diaz was also “excited” about the Spurs interest. In contrast, Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is supposedly “furious” that the deal has failed.
Tottenham have signed papers over a €45m deal plus €15m deal with Porto. In the end, though, it was Liverpool who took him with the same numbers.
