Brighton to sell World champion?

Brighton and Argentina national team midfielder Alexis Mac Allister is one step away from moving to a more status club! Chelsea, Manchester City, Liverpool and Manchester United are actively interested in the world champion, and the Seagulls are ready to sell their player for 60 million euros.

Mac Allister has been defending the colors of Brighton for four years, and during this time he has gone from a little-known Argentinos Juniors football player to the leader of the midfield of De Zerbi's men and the World Cup gold medal winner. It is obvious that Alexis' departure for a promotion is a matter of time. No matter how hard the Seagulls try to finish in the European league spot, it is difficult for them to compete financially and in status with the recognized Premier League sharks.

So far, Chelsea have been the pushiest on McAllister's move, continuing the process of rebuilding the team. The Blues have spent more than half a billion euros in two transfer windows, but the team still has money, and the central midfield issue has only been partially resolved. If suddenly the 24-year-old Argentine goes to Stamford Bridge, then he has a chance to reunite with teammate Enzo Fernandez there and make a cool tandem of central midfielders with him for many years to come.

Both Manchester giants are looking for an intelligent performer of this role. City frankly failed with the purchase of Phillips, and Rodri alone will not get them far. Plus, Gundogan will definitely leave the Cityzens in the summer, so the club will have to work on the transfer market in the summer. World champion Mac Allister is a good investment, first of all, mentally. The red part of Manchester thinks the same, but the positions of Casemiro and Fred are still unshakable there. In 2024, the Red Devils could sign the Brighton midfielder, but until then, he is almost one hundred percent likely to be in another top club.

As for Liverpool, they also need to reinforce the central line. If in the 2021/22 season the trio of midfielders Fabinho-Thiago-Henderson were at their peak and almost brought Klopp four trophies, now they have become seriously worse, which is why the Reds risk mssing the Champions League. The club has finances, and the purchase of Mac Allister fits into the transfer concept of the Reds, who do not run after ready-made football stars, but mainly buy players for the future.

It so happens that almost all the giants of the English Premier League need a young and very talented Alexis Mac Allister. In our opinion, he will go to either Chelsea or Liverpool, given the increased readiness of both clubs to return to the cohort of contenders for major trophies.
