Rodgers Says He’ll Only Sell Carroll For The Right Price

Posted by

Brendan Rodgers says he will only sell Andy Carroll if the price is right.

Carroll’s former club, Newcastle are willing to sign Carroll but only on a season-long deal, with a view to a permanent £12 million transfer.

But the Reds manager insists he won’t let the striker go without bringing in a replacement.

“I would need to be a nutcase to even consider at this moment to let Andy Carroll go out, unless there are other solutions for that. At the moment there isn’t. Andy has been working well. He knows the situation, like the rest of the group do, and we will take it from there.”

On a cut price deal, Rodgers said,

“Absolutely no chance – and certainly Newcastle know that. Newcastle got £35m for this player last year. To even consider wanting to take him on loan is a liberty really. Like I say, there is nothing more on it for me. I need a minimum of three strikers. Once the window shuts, that it is it until January. I have got Luis Suarez, Fabio Borini and Andy Carroll.”
