Liverpool Pay Tribute To Takumi Minamino's Role In Cup Double As Reds Make Tidy Transfer Profit

Liverpool paid tribute to Takumi Minamino after the Japan international completed his move to Monaco on Tuesday.

The 27-year-old has signed a four-year contract with the Ligue 1 outfit.

According to the Liverpool Echo, the Reds will receive a guaranteed £12.9 million fee from Monaco for the sale of Minamino, who cost them £7.25m when he arrived from RB Salzburg in January 2020. 

It is said that Liverpool could receive a further £2.6m in add-ons, taking the total potential value of the deal up to £15.5m, which would see them more than double their money on the player.

Minamino started just one Premier League game in his final season as a Liverpool player, making 10 further appearances as a substitute.

He scored three Premier League goals in 2021/22 but his biggest contributions came in the domestic cups.
