Marko Grujic’s Liverpool career was one littered with what ifs.

And while Liverpool might be left wondering how much they could have raised for the Serbian’s signature had it not been for the pandemic, it is still a profile of signing they could look to replicate going forward, with their transfer model still about far more than just signing A-list players for Klopp’s starting XI.

What if he had had more opportunities to play for the Reds?

Having become Klopp’s first signing in a £5.1m deal in January 2016, Liverpool doubled their money when eventually selling the Serbian on a permanent basis for £10.5m in the summer, with the 25-year-old joining Porto, but it still fell somewhat short of the fee upwards of £20m he could have commanded pre-pandemic.

What if Jurgen Klopp’s side hadn’t gone on to reach a Champions League final before winning both the European Cup and Premier League in his absence after he was loaned out?

What if the coronavirus pandemic hadn’t wreaked havoc with the final 18 months of his Reds career?

Had Liverpool not been able to sign Thiago Alcantara last summer, he perhaps would have been granted a final chance to make a go of things on Merseyside last season.
