That's great it is only loan deal probably with option to buy so if he does well LFC can buy him but for now no outlay of money to buy only wages which LFC have money for since Reina gone on loan.

"whats the problem with you guys? until now it's a decent transfer window. kolo seems to turn out a massive transfer for us and he came for free, mignolet is a superb gk, aspas scored 3 goals in preseason and assisted as well, alberto looked ok. the squad has totally improved. with just need 1 attacking midfielder and maybe a replacement for suarez and we have still 1 month to go.

"<... if barca call on pepe's services he would be off in a shot BR did the right thing getting cover for him... he's been a great servant for years but as deffo gone off the boil in the last 2 seasons... he's been on his way out for a while, BR's done him and lfc a favour "

"This guys is not a left back he is a left winger. As demonstrated when put out on loan 2 yrs ago top goal scoring for his team and most assists ensuring his team did not get relegated. The Benfica manager has tried to turn him into a left back and failed. Again no investment in the team as the transfer window closes "

"The good news about this is, if we flops this season we can just send him back. Try before you buy is a great way to judge players before spending any cash, just make sure the price is agreed in case he turns out like Coutinho who must be worth at least double that we bought him for. YNWA"

"The season will not be defined by this signing but by the continuation of the playing style From the second half of last season. The benefit of a fully fit Kelly and Lucas will strengthen the defence together with a refocused Skirtel. We will score goals and be better defensively, which pre season has already shown."

"Montyspop someone with a little sense thank god. Some fans think money grows on trees as well and most probably have never run a business, people talk about millions as if it is nothing. What's wrong with a loan it's far less risky and if the guy is good then buy him next year, I am sure there is a clause at a set price."

"Bondy9: i know what you're saying but the thing is maybe we should have been getting players on loan with a view to buy because what we were doing was either get a player on a free with a massive wage (Cole) or paying out big money on potentials (Hendo). maybe this is a good thing... "

Wenger will never win the CL in a million years. Without CL we cannot get the players we want or need"

"Some fans are pitiful. Don't know why you waste your time if you think we'll fail before every season starts! I can't speak for Melgarejo, but Benfica are known for Portuguese and South American talent, and this looks like a steal considering the fact we're only paying his wages, and if he flops, he'll return to Benfica. Enrique will be the starter, but you'll have a hungry player behind him"
Amerigo
30th Jul 2013 20:03
"After a bit of research, it looks like Melgarejo was converted from left back after being a star on the wing. I think he's the type of player BR is looking for in that he's a versatile left sided attacker. Read this: .mirror.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/liverpool-target-lorenzo-melgarejo-in-depth-2101704 it basically says it all."
