Liverpool tell Rodgers to forget about big money summer deals

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers has been warned not to expect a big summer transfer kitty. The Mirror says Rodgers has been told to expect a transfer budget of no more than £20million this summer.

And that means he will be forced to sell to enable him to bring in the four top-class players he wants to recruit ahead of an ­assault on the top four next season.

Rodgers has been ­assured that he will have the final say on the future of Luis Suarez, a player who would generate a fee in excess of £40m if he was made available.

An Anfield insider said: "The owners are not ­overly concerned with the financial position of the club, but there won't be huge amounts of money made available for investment in the team.

"The manager will be given a budget to work with and will also have the freedom to spend whatever money he ­generates himself with the usual wheeling and dealing that takes place in the transfer market."

 Can FSG expect Rodgers to compete for a top four finish on such a budget? Give us your shout below...
