Liverpool fans have called on Jurgen Klopp to make a move for Kevin de Bruyne following the news of Manchester City’s two-year ban from European competition.
On Friday night, UEFA announced they’d handed City a two-year ban for breaking Financial Fair Play rules.
The European football governing body have also handed City a £25million fine for their breach of the rules.
The ban means the defending Premier League champions will miss next season’s Champions League tournament, regardless of if they win this year’s competition.
News of City’s suspension, which they plan to appeal, has cast doubt over the futures of their manager Pep Guardiola and several of their players.
One of the players who could leave the Etihad following the suspension is the club’s midfield maestro De Bruyne, who has undoubtedly been the best player in the Premier League for the last two seasons.
Liverpool fans are eager to see the Belgium international swap Manchester for Merseyside, and immediately expressed that desire shorty after the announcement of City’s suspension.
“Bid for de bruyne straight away,” one Reds fan tweeted upon seeing the news of City’s ban.
Another said: “KDB gonna want European ball, FYI. @LFC.” One Kopite wrote: “@LFC ANNOUNCE KEVIN DE BRUYNE.”
“KDB to Liverpool?” asked one follower of the Merseyside club. “Maybe yessssss.”
One fan wrote: “KDB2020 Welcome to #LFC Kevin De Bruyne,” wrote one of the Anfield faithful. “#YNWA.” “Get kdb now @LFC,” said another.
One fan even went as far as to send a welcome message to ‘KDB’, tweeting: “Welcome to Liverpool Kevin de Bruyne.” “A cheeky bid for KDB, @LFC please?” asked another supporter of the Merseyside club.
