Awkward £7.7m spat stems from Luis Diaz’s Liverpool transfer as complaint filed

Liverpool sensation Luis Diaz is currently at the heart of a £7.7million spat between his two former clubs.

The Colombian winger has taken the Premier League by storm since arriving in January from Porto. He had enjoyed a hugely successful three years in Portugal after being snapped up from South American side Barranquilla FC back in 2019.

But Diaz now finds himself embroiled in a complaint after Porto reportedly failed to pay Barranquilla 20-per-cent of the £40million transfer fee they received from Liverpool, as agreed when he was first signed. And FIFA have now been called in to deal with the complaint, according to reports in Colombia.

The Colombians are expecting an outstanding payment of £7.7million in total, while still awaiting £2.5million from the initial £12.8million Liverpool paid Porto. They have reportedly even hired Swiss company MS International Law to take care of the case, according to Record via Sport Witness.

Meanwhile, Diaz has remained focused on the pitch and made an instant impact at Anfield. He's scored six times in 22 outings for Liverpool in pursuit of the quadruple, including a crucial deflected equaliser in the draw with Tottenham last time out.

Manager Jurgen Klopp has heaped praise on the 25-year-old, telling Sky Sports: "There is a reason why you sign a player. The reason is the quality that he has. The reason is the way that he is playing the game.

“With Luis, where it has been really special is that when we saw him we knew that he would fit in immediately. That is really difficult usually but because he did not have to change, that is why we have a really confident boy here.

"He was in a really good moment with Porto, playing good for Colombia, and so he came here full of confidence. But what we tried to make sure is that he does not lose that because of the playbook as we tell him that he has to do this and he has to do that. We want him to be natural."
