Roberto Firmino: 'Liverpool will fight until the end against Real Madrid'


Jurgen Klopp's side have taken Europe by storm this season, defying expectations by bulldozing their way to the final, hitting 40 goals in the process - more than any other side.

They have impressed with their brilliant attacking flair in the tournament, stemming from Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mané and the prolific Mohamed Salah, who has scored ten goals in the tournament alone.

We've now got two Italian outlets seeing this transfer as good as done, and it seems it would take a huge U-turn for this deal to fall through.

Jürgen Klopp, his staff and the squad travelled out to Spain on Wednesday afternoon and were straight into a session amid the sunshine - as we showed in this collection of images.

Real Madrid have reportedly concluded their first signing of the summer transfer window already as they look set to sign Liverpool star Mohamed Salah.

Payet was forced off the pitch after half an hour through injury and his side were soundly beaten 3-0 by Atletico Madrid.

"We aren't anyone else". They'll also be up against Liverpool - a team and a club with a great pedigree. To summarise, it's been a insane ride. "I like him a lot", added the Egyptian, who is looking to add to his 44 goals this season against Real Madrid.

The speed and savviness of Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah, backed up by a team built to exploit their talent, has been hard for any side to handle, never mind stop.

But with Giggs now the Wales boss, he says that seeing Gareth Bale lift an astonishing personal fourth Champions League trophy would be unbelievable.

'We entered the competition for the first time in a while and we quickly realised that we had a good chance. It's just part of the game.
