Confirmed: Attacker has joined Liverpool despite offer from Man Utd + FSG owed fee for ace that’s moved to Utd

Ethan Ennis has joined Manchester United while Liverpool will be owed a ‘development fee’ which a tribunal could decide if the two sides can’t come to an agreement.

The 16-year-old was named in Manchester United’s Professional Development Phase squad and after leaving Liverpool, the Reds are owed a fee.

This is for their role in his development and while the two clubs are expected to negotiate over how much the Red Devils should pay, if an agreement isn’t reached, a tribunal will intervene.

Meanwhile, Fatawu Issahaku confirmed his move to Liverpool with a post on Instagram, resharing a video of him, titled: “Here’s why Liverpool Signed Abdul Fatawu Issahaku.”

While Liverpool Football Club are yet to announce his move due to immigration rules against signing U18 players, Anfield Central’s exclusive on gem has been confirmed by the man himself.

While we have no inside infortmation, I don’t think it’s a coincedence that at the same time one attacking midfielder officially departs the club, another makes his move to the club official.

That’s just my opinion but it would be fitting as Ennis joins Manchester United and Issahaku rejected the Old Trafford’s best attempts to sign him.

While fans will be disappointed that the only news of a new signing is a 17-year-old that won’t play for the club until he is eligible for a UK work permit, the Ghanain is a very exciting player and has been compared to Abedi Pele.

Harvey Elliott and Kaide Gordon are just 18 and 16 respectively and yet they’ve had fans off their seats all pre-season.

Liverpool’s future is in safe hands and this is shown by the reception Elliott got when he came on against Norwich City.

The 18-year-old is a sensation.

He’s one of the best players I’ve seen at his age and while it’s difficult not to get carried away, you can just tell he’s got something special about him.

Hopefully Issahaku turns out to be the same and that we can see him in the Red of Liverpool soon.
