These days, Jurgen Klopp's Reds are the outfit young players would rather join.

Liverpool learnt the hard way that the Red Devils were the team to play for back in 2009 when they came close to signing a young Cristiano Ronaldo from Sporting Lisbon, only to miss out on him by the skin of their teeth.

Manchester United and Liverpool have largely had the pick of the Premier League's best players over the years - although there is often a power struggle between the two clubs.

At the time, Mane had agreed to join the Red Devils, but Klopp got revenge on Man United for the Ronaldo deal and signed the Senegal international from under their noses.

Back when Gerard Houllier was Reds boss, with Phil Thompson as his number two, Ronaldo was offered to the club by his then-agent Paul Stretford.

Thompson has previously discussed Liverpool missing out on Ronaldo, telling The Athletic that he and Houllier "nearly choked" on their food when they realised Man United had won the transfer race.

That was on Sunday, on Monday I arrived back in Liverpool, went into training, we were sitting there, and I said to Gerard Houllier, 'This boy's a player, he's great!'
