Liverpool FC will have to offer £26m to land Portugal international

Coentrao is available but clubs will need to fork out £26m to sign himLiverpool FC have been told they will need to table an offer of £26m should they really be interested in landing Portugal international Fabio Coentrao.

The Anfield side have been linked with a move for the 23 year old playmaker who can very much player anywhere on the left however Benifca president Lius Filipe Viera has insisted it will cost an astronomical amount of money to land him.

Liverpool seem resigned to losing out on Aston Villa’s Ashley Young and have apparently earmarked Coentrao as the perfect alternative however Viera has made it clear what sort of money Benfica would be expecting.

“Coentrao can only leave if a club pays €30m, which is his value in the market.”

Liverpool and Manchester City are rumoured interested parties in England although Real Madrid and Bayern Munich are said to be keeping an eye on situation should Coentrao become available.
