Jurgen Klopp gives Liverpool transfer update after Tranmere win
Liverpool forward Paul Glatzel has been dealt a cruel blow after Jurgen Klopp confirmed that he'd suffered what looks to be a serious injury.

The Madrid based side want their La Liga rivals to pay the original transfer clause on the forward's contract because they believe an agreement was in place before July 1st.

"It was also prior to the date on which the clause was modified that the player on May 14 announced his disassociation from the club".

Griezmann was seemingly set to join Barca in the summer of 2018 only to confirm during a television documentary he was staying at Atletico.

Atletico Madrid have announced they have already "initiated the procedures" to contest the signing, effectively taking Barcelona to court.

"I wanted to tell you that I've made the decision to leave, to experience different things and have new challenges", Griezmann told the Atletico website. I'll defend the Barça colors with all my determination and commitment. In the same year, he finished amongst the top three in the battle for the Ballon d'Or.He was also named La Liga Best Player in 2016.
