Liverpool may have to act quickly if they want Keirrison

March 29, 2009 at 11:41 8 comments


The battle to sign Palmeiras’ 16 goal striker, Keirrison, is intensifying as AC Milan, Real Madrid and Barcelona get set to make offers.

This week, Barcelona had officials watch the 20-year-old vs Bragantino in the Campeonato Paulista.

Liverpool have apparently had a long-term interest in the forward but may lose out to the likes of Milan who have a record of signing young Brazilian stars such as Kaká and Alexandre Pato.

However, the sports management group, Traffic, who own the major part of Keirrison’s contract, have said that Keirrison is happy to stay in Brazil and that there is no particular rush to offload the player.

But all this may just be a smokescreen from the canny business group as Keirrison will be on his way for the right price.

Is Keirrison really worth all the hype?

    Keirrison, it was nice knowing you. I hope you help Palmeiras win at least one title before you go. Boa sorte e boa viagem.

    I can see him ending up at Barca or Milan eventually. I’ve been quite surprised at the level of clubs going for him actually – I saw Keirrison attracting the Villarreals, Sevillas and maybe Benficas of this world, but certainly not clubs like Real Madrid and Barca. Do you think he’s at that level yet?

    We recently wrote a preview of him on Just Football, I hope you will allow us to post it here for anyone interested.

    After getting this special right for us LGBT, I won’t think we are kicked out by family, by world. I’m here as a bisexual, get very happy for this matter. Now I can speak out loudly “hi everyone, I’m a bisexual. I love the world.” without any hesitation. Now, feel we are also common people as equal as others. “No matter we are gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender, our heart is full of love. And we also hope to have life-long love” said by one of my bisexual friends met at the bisexual club on heart blog. Most of us like-minded people are deeply moved by her honest words. Thanks for making us accepted by others. We are really proud of us. Join 10000000000% free. happy life is up to you.
