Liverpool Chelsea and Man City pay for Private Jet

Liverpool, Chelsea and Manchester City have all pitched in together to hire a private jet to fly back their Brazilian stars ASAP. Manchester City face Liverpool at Saturday lunchtime and both sides wanted their Brazilian contingents to be available.

Manchester have the most players in the Brazil squad with Gabriel Jesus, Ederson and Fernandinho all making the squad. Liverpool have Robert Firminho and Philppe Coutinho in the squad and Chelsea have Willian.

They are expected to leave straight after Tuesdays game against Columbia and arrive in England on Wednesday morning to begin preparations for Saturday’s game.

Manchester City will be racking up the air miles as they have already arranged for a jet to fly to fly Sergio Aguero and Nicolas Otemendi from Beunos Aires after Argentina face Venezuela in a crucial world cup qualifier.

Saturdays fixture may the first time that Coutinho appears in a Liverpool shirt this season after he was unable to force a move to Barcelona where he could play alongside new signings Oxlade Chamberlain and Mo Salah.
