Why didn’t Tottenham’s Luis Diaz deal fall through?
Meanwhile, a source claims there is an intriguing reason why Luis Diaz is on his way to Liverpool rather than Tottenham.
According to Sport Witness, who cites the Portuguese newspaper Record, Diaz will team up with Jurgen Klopp rather than Antonio Conte.

Mendes suggested that Paratici fly Diaz in from Porto. However, the Portuguese club had already given Raul Costa, the goalscorer’s agent, the’mandate’ to conclude a transaction.
This meant that any transfer to Tottenham would have seen the agency fee, which was worth 10%, doubled.
Because Liverpool had not reached an agreement with Mendes, their offer was simpler, allowing it to be processed faster.
