Could the Welshman make an unbelievable switch
Manchester United have been linked with a sensational move for Liverpool midfielder Joe Allen.
According to the Essex Chronicle, United are interested in the midfielder after being impressed by his performances for Wales at Euro 2016. United are just one of the clubs thought to be interested, joining a list that already includes West Ham, Swansea, and Stoke City.
Liverpool’s manager, Jurgen Klopp, has called for talks with the Welshman in order to resolve his future as soon as possible.
“Obviously Joe Allen is a good player,” Klopp told Sky Sports. “We never doubted this. He played a good European Championship, like the whole Welsh team.
“We have to make decisions, we have to find solutions. We have to talk to the player, ask the player and think about our situation. That’s how it works.”
Allen, who left Swansea for Liverpool in 2012, is not a regular starter in Klopp’s team. He scored 3 goals and made 1 assist in 26 appearances for the 18-time English champions last season.
It appears as though Allen’s days at Anfield are numbered, but even if United are interested in the midfielder, the chances of Liverpool sanctioning his move to Old Trafford are close to zero.
