The source below, and not myself, suggests that the deal to bring a certain Spurs striker to Anfield is all but complete, could this really happen?
Liverpool are confident they will sign Tottenham striker Robbie Keane this week despite chairman Daniel Levy making a complaint against them to the Premier League.
Levy, who has also asked for Manchester United to be investigated over their pursuit of Dimitar Berbatov, has accused Liverpool of approaching Keane and his agent Struan Marshall about a move without Spurs’ permission.
He was also angry over Benitez declaring his interest publicly in a television interview 11 days ago.
But Standard Sport understands a deal worth up to £20million, with Liverpool paying the full amount should they win the Champions League or Premier League while Keane is at the club, is close to being agreed.
Sources close to Anfield have revealed the club are unconcerned over Levy’s complaint to the League and feel most of his ire is aimed at Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson, who was quoted last week saying it was only a matter of time before Berbatov came to Old Trafford. (Daily Mail)
So will Robbie Keane leave White Hart Lane to join Rafa’s revolution? Well this report seems to think that Daniel Levy’s anger towards Sir Alex has made it all that easier for Liverpool to seal a deal for the Irish international. If this is the case then the Merseyside club will have one hell of a strike pairing next term but I am sure we haven’t heard the last of this from Tottenham’s point of view. Do Liverpool supporters think this deal is as certain as the Daily Mail suggests it is?
