Babel told he can leave
The papers today are filled with news that Ryan Babel has been told that he can leave Liverpool this summer. I am not too surprised about this as I felt that Babel would be one of the players we would have to let go inorder to fund the purchasing on new players.
I am sure you all agree with me that Babel has not really set the stage alight during his time at Anfield. He came with high hopes from Ajax considering that we spent 11 million pounds to sign him but I have not seen much to make me happy with him. He has had a few glimpses of brilliance but they are few and far between. Would I be sad to see Babel leave? Not really, just as long as we get a good fee for him. If we get anything above 8 million pounds for him I will be happy. He is a young player with bags of talent and I am sure he could turn into a great player one day but I don’t see it being at Liverpool. We will keep an eye on this story and see how it pans out over the next couple of weeks. What do you make of all of this?
