Duje Caleta Car travelled to airport to fly to England for Liverpool move… but didn’t get on

RMC Sport report that 24-year-old Croatian international and Marseille central defender Duje Caleta Car arrived at Mairgnane airport accompanied by his girlfriend at the end of today to fly via private jet to Manchester ahead of completing a possible deadline day move to Premier League champions Liverpool.

However, he didn’t get on the flight – a source close to the player tells the outlet that whilst Marseille and Liverpool had come to an understanding over a fee, the negotiations have been brought to a stop by OM who are worried about failing to find a replacement for the centre-back in time before tomorrow’s deadline of midnight.

Reporter Loic Tanzi claims that a deal is now unlikely, but not entirely out of the question. A busy deadline day approaches for French football.
