Andy Robertson and Real Madrid talk raises transfer question Liverpool can no longer dodge

Eyebrows were inevitably raised at a report on Wednesday suggesting that Andy Robertson could be set for a Liverpool exit this summer.

The Daily Mail claim that Real Madrid are interested in signing the Scotland international, with the defender said to be on their list of potential transfer targets as they scour the market for a replacement for likely outgoing left-back Ferland Mendy.

Having lost the France international to injury for much of the season, Carlo Ancelotti has improved by playing Eduardo Camavinga in the role in recent months. However, there is a desire for him to return to midfield.

Real Madrid have also been heavily-linked with Alphonso Davies, though Bayern Munich have no interest in selling the Canadian and are said to be looking to extend his contract. Which has prompted these latest reports, touting interest in Robertson with Liverpool highly likely to miss out on Champions League qualification.

Meanwhile, The Mail claim that the Scot, who is under contract until 2026, would command a fee well in excess of £40m. Having only cost £10m from Hull City six years ago, it would mark a considerable profit on a player who has enjoyed his peak years at Anfield and won all there is to win.

Yet, the inner details of such a report hardly matter. Regardless of its content, Kopites are likely to scoff at the notion of Robertson moving on, and, at the very least, have their pinches of salt being ready when reading such speculation.
