Liverpool made an offer for Brazilian teenager Rodrygo Goes before he completed a move to Real Madrid, according to former Santos manager Elano.

Madrid reached an agreement with Santos in the summer of 2018, and the 18-year-old arrived at the Bernabeu during the recent transfer window.

Rodrygo has been in excellent form for Los Blancos this season, scoring five times in just six appearances, including a hat-trick against Galatasaray in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

However, according to former Manchester City midfielder Elano, who handed the youngster his first-team debut, Liverpool had the opportunity to sign him.

"There was strong interest from Liverpool for the kid when he was in the youth teams and they wanted him, but the offer was low," Elano told ESPN. "Then the offer arrived from Real Madrid."

The youngster scored 10 times in 49 outings for Santos before arriving in the Spanish capital.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola hints at Serie A move

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has revealed that he would be interested in managing a Serie A club when his time in England has finished.

Guardiola was in charge of Barcelona's first team between 2008 and 2012 before leaving for Bayern Munich, where he spent three years ahead of a switch to the Etihad Stadium.

The Spaniard has already completed three years in Manchester, and his contract with the reigning English champions is due to expire at the end of next season.

The 48-year-old turned out for Brescia and Roma during his playing career and has suggested that he would seriously consider a return to Serie A as a head coach.

"Training in Italy? Why not. It was a pleasure [to be there] as a player, with the great [Carlo] Mazzone [former Brescia manager]. I had a great time and I love the country but now I feel good in England, it's a great championship. But maybe yes, I'm not that old," Guardiola told Sky in Italy.

The former midfielder has won two Premier League titles, one FA Cup and two League Cups during his time in charge of the Citizens.

Norwich City v Watford: Premier League – live!

It’s nights like these that make you wonder how the Premier League gets away with it. The top flight’s Friday live slate rarely captures the imagination, but this clash between the league’s bottom two looks the most unappealing prospect on paper since [insert your own Brexit joke here].

That said, nobody expected a nine-goal thriller when Southampton hosted Leicester, and this early six-pointer does have the potential to be eminently watchable. Despite both being odds-on for the drop, these two teams are still capable of playing fluid, intelligent attacking football when everything clicks.

Unfortunately, both are also waist-deep in existential crises, weeks spent in the bottom three eroding their sense of identity. Watford brought in Quique Sánchez Flores to tighten up their defence, and have scored two goals in their last six league games. As for Norwich, well, they’ll always have Manchester City.

Since that statement win, Daniel Farke’s side have lost to a host of mid-table teams (Brighton, Burnley, Palace, Villa, United) without putting up much of a fight. Like his opposite number, Farke is caught between sticking to his team’s attacking ideals and buckling down for a dogfight, and is currently doing neither well.

As a result, all bets are off tonight. We might get a feast of attacking flair, or a buffet of defensive howlers. Either team could conceivably do what Leicester did, and turn what looks a tight contest into a shooting gallery. Who knows, maybe Elton or Delia will feel compelled to intervene – and maybe the Man know’s what he’s doing after all.
