The Reds have reportedly offered €30m for Inter's centre-back Jeison Murillo, who has already impressed in his short time at Inter.

There are many factors to count when we think of Inter's success this season, and one of them surely is the centre-back pair of Miranda & Murillo. Both are good players, but if Miranda was already renowned for his skills, the Colombian surprised everyone early in the season both for his defensive abilities and athleticism.

The 23-year-old defender was bought back in February for €8 million, but after his great performance in the Copa America and with Inter his value has risen a lot. According to some reports in fact, Liverpool have €30 million ready for the Colombian youngster, who is also being monitored by Barcelona and Real Madrid.

It doesn't look like Mancini is going to let his young star go soon, even for such a big amount of cash. Murillo has quickly become a key element for this Inter team and Mancio knows that if he wants to aim to the higher spots of the Serie A he can't break his defensive duo in half right now, and he probably won't.

With his infectious smile and his plays on the pitch, Jeison has become a fan-favorite right away and it could be very painful for the supporters seeing him leave the team so early. The team seem to have finally found the chemistry and the mentality to be able to compete for the Scudetto and the fans are playing a big role in that too, so it makes sense to think about them in these moments.
