Real Madrid step up their bid to sign Alisson

Xherdan Shaqiri

Signing for £37 million and then going on to break the record for most goals scored in a 20-club Premier League season must surely classify him as one of the best deals in English football.

The Brazilian shot stopper, who is valued at around £61million, kept 17 clean sheets for Roma in Serie A last season.

He will start the World Cup as Brazil's number one ahead of Manchester City's Ederson. He is not anxious about the competition with Keylor Navas and thinks that the style of play of Real Madrid adapts to the way he plays.

He has been on Liverpool and Chelsea's radar in the ongoing transfer window and Real Madrid are unwilling to take any chances by delaying negotiations for the Roma custodian.

News of Alisson's move to Real will be a blow to Liverpool and their manager Jurgen Klopp, who is on the hunt for a new goalkeeper.

IHOP CMO Haley tells the New York Times' Jonah Engel Bromwich that the marketing idea had been proposed by Droga5 in November. You are a brand known for pancakes, the type of wholesome spot you take your grandpa or your kid's soccer team.

Alisson has previously spoken of his hope to have his club future resolved prior to kick-off in Russian Federation and it appears increasingly likely that he will stay at Stadio Olimpico.

"The truth is that I left everything in the hands of my agent".

The Brazil goalkeeper has been the subject of intense transfer speculation in the lead up to the World Cup.

This story has been reproduced from the media. He was a marquee signing for the Potters but even though he was unable to stop them from dropping down into the Sky Bet Championship, Shaqiri himself has made it clear he wants to leave the club so he can get back to competing in top tier competition.
