Liverpool will be hoping that Chelsea can beat Manchester United on Thursday to keep alive their slim chances of qualifying for next season’s Champions League. 

The Reds currently sit fifth in the Premier League table, and fourth-placed Manchester United need just aa single point from their two remaining games to secure their place in the competition next term.

It therefore looks likely that Jurgen Klopp’s side will compete in the Europa League next season, but in the meantime it appears that the club could face a battle to keep hold of one of their biggest stars.

According to The Mail, Spanish giants Real Madrid are plotting a move for Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson.

The European champions have reportedly identified the Scot as a potential replacement for Ferland Mendy, who is expected to leave the club this summer.

Mendy joined Real from French side Lyon in 2019 for a fee of around £42 million, but he has struggled with injuries this term and is expected to leave the Spanish capital during the upcoming transfer window.

Carlo Ancelotti’s side could therefore look to sign Robertson, who has been one of Liverpool’s most important players for a number of seasons now.

The Scotland international joined the Reds from Championship side Hull City in 2017 and instantly became a regular at Anfield.

Robertson helped his side to win the Champions League in 2019 and the Premier League title the following year, forming a solid defensive line with Virgil van Dijk, Joel Matip and Trent Alexander-Arnold.

In total he has made 267 appearances for Liverpool and won seven trophies, but the report claims that Spanish giants Real will look to sign him this summer.

Robertson remains an integral part of Klopp’s squad – making 43 appearances across all competitions this summer – and has given no indication that he wants to leave.

Despite that, Real will reportedly attempt to sign the defender, although it is claimed that he would cost in excess of £40 million as his current contract doesn’t expire until 2026.
