The Brazil international could bring great profits into the Roma coffers if his sale will be confirmed this summer.
This is the beauty of discovering great talents around the world. This is the maximization of a trading concept often rejected by football lovers.
When the former Roma sporting director Walter Sabatini purchased a talented but still not well-known Brazilian goalkeeper from Internacional on July 6, 2016, paying €8 million, most of the Roma fans were more than happy to let him sit on the bench in order to start the Polish keeper Wojciech Tomasz Szczęsny on loan from Arsenal.
In just a few months, the situation completely changed. Szczęsny’s loan agreement between Roma and Arsenal ended and the Polish keeper moved on a permanent deal to Juventus. The Giallorossi, instead, gave a chance to Alisson Becker who stunned with his technique and reactivity in the 2017-18 campaign.
Nowadays, whispers report that the Brazil international could be traded out by Monchi. Although officially the club of the Italian capital denied Alisson’s departure, Real Madrid and Liverpool are luring the goalkeeper apparently promising him a top salary. Reportedly, the British giants is very attracted by the Brazilian keeper and Klopp could make a €80 million bid over the summer.
According to ‘CIES football observatory’ and to their meticulous transfer value methodology, Alisson Becker’s current price-tag is €73.4 million. The contract of the 25-year-old from Novo Hamburgo is set to expire on June 30, 2021.
If Alisson will be traded out for €73 million, Roma would have purchased a player for €8m in 2016 selling him for a whopping 812% more than his purchase price. Monchi always stated that the main issue is not selling players but buying the right replacements. Eventually, this deal could represent a great challenge for the Spaniard.
