Liverpool legend John Aldridge tells Chelsea they ‘lack integrity’ and have ‘bought their way to where they are’ in a rant about £115m Moises Caicedo deal

Liverpool legend John Aldridge has berated Chelsea in a rant in regards to the Blues beating his former aspect within the signing of Moises Caicedo.

Jurgen Klopp’s aspect had agreed a £111 million deal to convey the 21-year-old from Brighton, just for the Ecuador worldwide to show down the Reds in favor of a transfer to Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea on Monday confirmed a UK document £115 million contract for Caicedo, an enormous blow to Liverpool, who’re determined for a defensive midfielder earlier than the top of the summer time interval.

Aldridge, who scored 63 targets in 104 appearances for the Reds within the late Nineteen Eighties, has closely criticized Chelsea, insisting that Liverpool are ‘much bigger’ and that the Blues have ‘bought’ their technique to success.

The 64-year-old mentioned in his column with the Liverpool echo“As soon as the player made it clear that he wanted to go to Chelsea instead of Liverpool, I didn’t want him at all. We are much bigger than Chelsea will ever be.

“Missing this transfer didn’t hurt me like when (Fernando) Torres left us to go there, that was horrible and hard to digest.” To Chelsea? When I used to be at Oxford United we beat them thrice within the house of 4 months. They’ve purchased their technique to the place they’re.’

Aldridge went on to recommend that the ‘London way of life’ had an enormous enchantment to Caicedo and that Chelsea lacked the ‘history’ that the Reds do have.

“As for the reasons why Caicedo chose Chelsea over Liverpool, they are a London club and some players see that as a big draw.” With the Louis Vuitton retailer on Oxford Street and the London lifestyle, they see that as an enormous draw.

“Chelsea has that, but they don’t have the same selling point of Liverpool Football Club: history. We are a huge club in world football and always will be. If Caicedo wants to go to Chelsea, tidy up. We have to overcome this and trust that Jurgen gets a player who can do that job.’

Aldridge, who won the league title and FA Cup during his time with the Reds, also questioned Chelsea’s integrity, pointing to their decision to pull out of a deal with Tyler Adams.

Chelsea activated a £20 million escape clause to sign the US captain from Leeds.

However, they pulled out of a deal, with Mail Sport reporting that the Blues feared how long he would be out with a hamstring injury.

Adams missed the end of last season as Leeds were relegated to the Championship, and has also missed the first two games of the season.

Aldridge said: ‘The one thing I can’t understand with this whole thing is Chelsea’s integrity. They agreed to sign Tyler Adams from Leeds United, the medicals were done and they have seemingly backed out of putting the money to Caicedo.

How does that boy feel now? Adams now has to bounce back to Leeds and wait for someone else. That is shocking and is a sign of the people who now run Chelsea.’

Aldridge also denounced Chelsea owner Todd Boehly for “buying an entire team, when he gets rid of an entire team in six months” – accusing the American of mistaking the Stamford Bridge membership for a baseball crew.

Caicedo’s determination to reject Liverpool for Chelsea seems more likely to be echoed by Southampton midfielder Romeo Lavia, with {the teenager} agreeing to a £50 million payment for the Reds’ goal.
