Now this guy is good,  reports have come out tonight that this is a done deal  for around 10 million pounds and money well spent I feel. This fella could be a step up from Javier Mascherano with a good football brain and a super passer of the ball, he was a big favourite at Porto .

Chelsea and United wanted to sign the FC Porto midfielder but the no move was done and Roy has jumped in quick, he could be a great addtion to the squad long term, only bad point i would say 15 goals in 137 appearances.

Liverpool have moved quickly to replace Javier Mascherano by agreeing a £10.7m package with Porto tonight for the Portugal international Raul Meireles.

The transfer was rushed through this evening after Mascherano finally got his wish to leave Anfield, joining Barcelona in a £20m deal that freed up the money for Liverpool to bring in a cheaper replacement.

Liverpool do not operate with such restrictions and the manager Roy Hodgson will hope Meireles can make his debut in the league game at Birmingham City tomorrow week
“Roy Hodgson was key to me coming here because he worked so hard to sign me,” Meireles was quoted as saying in the Daily Express.

“I am Meireles and not Mascherano and that will be clear to the fans. I hope one day the Liverpool fans will remember me for being successful.”

Fact: this man has more tattoos than the Liverpool defence put together you can’t miss him 🙂
