"I want to pay tribute to the way Alberto has conducted himself during these discussions.
"Throughout the entire process, his only desire has been to play football and he has put this ahead of any other considerations and at personal cost to himself."
"The Italy international has agreed a pay cut to move to the Serie A champions after he was frozen out of Liverpool’s future plans."
They are paying him 1.7m this season and if they signed him it would've increased to 2.2m.
I hope Rodgers keeps him. If Cole is stays and Aquaman is shipped out then I'll honestly be ********** off.

I would like to see him given another chance as i dont really think we gave him a proper crack of the whip before. I do think alot of people overate him, for me i dont see why these other clubs would not want him if he was all that.
Rodgers spoke fondly of aquilani,however so did kenny and so did roy...
Did he make the italian squad for the euros ?
so we are getting 3 million for him... well better than nothing i suppose. still 17 million down the drain though.
Time we just let him go. Whilst he is an incredbily stlyish player with a fantastic talent, there are better players out there. Namely Nuri Sahin.
Time to let him go. He is a great player with skill and an eye to shoot but he doesn't want to play in England seeing as we have loaned him out every season to Italy, if we do sell him here will end up going back to AC Milan
Aquilani could do a job here, of that im certain. There is definitely quality in him.
For me, the real questions are i) does he want to play for LFC, or at least prepared to see out his contract and give a genuine 100% for 2 seasons and ii) can someone else more dedicated and effective be brought in on his wages
I suspect it is probably best to cut our losses and find a new player with that money.
We've totally screwed ourselves in terms of a negotiating position so no one is going to come in with anything but a bargian basement price.
I'm gutted if this story is true, because I could see this
With wing backs providing the width.
BR is going to have a lot of change to deal with and a group of players learning a new system. I'd be keen to get as much solidity and stability as soon as poss to make that transition as smooth as possible
If the stories about him leaving for £3m are true then I feel physically sick. Once more we have had our pants pulled down by the Italians and been well and truly shafted. £5m was a relative pittance as it was, yet the mighty Milan only want to pay £3m? Some crack negotiating team we have. I'd rather see him here for two seasons and leave for nothing rather than be insulted like this. Worst. Transfer. Ever.
I'd rather make him play ( he's on a contract ) and whenever we don't have a game put him under house arrest so he can't leave the country
selling and loaning all our best players seems like the way we do things now. except gerrard and our top defenders, all our best midfield and attackers have been intentionally sold without equivalent replacement (transfer fee and wage) for the sake of profit. its clear that our squad value has dropped as players like downing, henderson and adam is not the same value and attribute as its predecessors. Fans who support or think that aquilani should be sold have no valid grounds but only to suport the club profitting. every one who appreciates good pass and move midfielder can see aquilani pace, dribbilng, passing, quick turn of pace and movement that adam, henderson and even lucas cannot achieve. not one of our existing midefielders can move and pass at that speed except gerrard.
If this is the way the fans support liverpool and its inability to see a good player and rather keep the weaker ones then this club is not living up to its potential. i believe next year under FSG will be a year of reckoning. If things work out on a cheap budget then great and we get 4th. If not, then I believe the stadium wont be a pleasant place to be in as we all know liverpool fans know that the club deserves more than the likes of adam, downing and henderson.
bet roma are pi$$ing themselves
I still can't understand the fascination some of our support has for him, there are actually fans that want him to stay here.
3m for Aquilani is good money? Are you being serious?
£3m for Aquilani? I'd rather keep Aquilani, pay them £3m and throw Adam in to sweeten the deal.
you say fans cant understand the fascination with aquilani, compared to what? the owners trying to sell a 20mil valued crock now rumoured to be at a 3m value when healthy and performing consistently at best? tell me about it mister PR man.
