RUMOUR: Liverpool have signed Benfica’s Lazar Markovic for €25m [Expresso]

Mariana Cabral, who goes by the Twitter handle @aminhabola, has woken up a lot of Liverpool fans on Sunday afternoon getting involved in a chat about the Reds’ pursuit of Benfica’s Lazar Markovic.

Earlier on Sunday, the front page of Portuguese paper O Jogo regurgitated the belief that liverpool were chasing the 20-year-old Serb, stating however that the deal would only get done once Luis Suarez had been sold to Barcelona.

O Jogo also painted the picture that Benfica were holding out for €25m from Liverpool for Markovic.

Now, however, Mariana Cabral has stirred up the story by saying that not only will Liverpool land Markovic, but that the hugely promising attacking midfielder will arrive for €25m.

Of course, this is just a rumour at his stage, however it does feel like the message coming of Portugal is that the player and Benfica are ready to do business with Liverpool.

See how a words characters on Twitter has resulted in a full-blown transfer story below.
