Liverpool held negotiations with 23-year-old Germany international

The Germans are famous for their efficiency, and that often spills over into the transfer market as they like to get their business done nice and early.

We’ve already seen Bayern Munich seal the signing of Dayot Upamecano for the next campaign, and Marco Rose has confirmed he will be leaving Borussia Monchengladbach to go to Dortmund after the campaign is over.

Their midfielder Florian Neuhaus has attracted plenty of attention in recent weeks and links to Liverpool do make sense when you consider they may need to replace Gini Wijnaldum in the summer. Neuhaus has a release clause of €40m and Liverpool were willing to pay it, but there was an issue with Rose going to Dortmund.

Borussia Dortmund are also said to be interested in the midfielder and there was a belief that securing Rose would boost their opportunities of taking the player with him, but that may be impossible.

It must be said that there’s no sign of there being any official clause in the deal to appoint Rose that actually prevents him from signing Monchengladbach footballers, but you can be sure that he will be held to these words if he tries to go back on them.
