Liverpool bid just £23 for Saido Berahino?

Liverpool will be hoping that a typo on the BBC Sport Twitter account will save them £22,999,977 as they look to bring Saido Berahino to Anfield.

The national broadcaster’s Monday gossip column featured a rumour that Liverpool would be submitting a bid for the West Brom starlet – but a simple omission of the letter “m” meant that, when the story was posted on Twitter, it looked as if the Reds would be offering the Baggies a measly £23 for the striker!

We know that Brendan Rodgers has been reticent to splash the cash in January, especially given his spending spree over the summer, but even £23 seems a bit too frugal to be accepted!

Playing along

West Bromwich Albion made light of the incident though as they replied to BBC Sport’s tweet with their official account saying: “@BBCSport £23? We'll get back to you on that one... :-)”

If we’re to take the club’s reply as a tongue-in-cheek rejection for the bid then Liverpool can be confident in the knowledge that they saved themselves enough money to buy 115 Freddos!
