According to Spanish journalist Guillem Balague, Benfica left-back Fabio Coentrao will not be joining Liverpool this summer contrary to many reports which suggest that Liverpool have already signed the Portuguese international.
Balague was speaking on talkSport and said that he believed Coentrao will be joining either Real Madrid or Bayern Munich.
Balague’s reasoning for Coentrao not joining Liverpool is that he does not believe Liverpool would spend £22million on a left-back and they would rather spend the money in other departments. Liverpool spent £17million on Glen Johnson so I do not agree with Balague that £22million is too much money for us to spend.
Do you think that £22million is too much to spend on Coentrao?
