I don't want to see our club bullied by agents ot players. He still has a contract /2 years left as far as I know/ with Liverpool and Klopp definitely likes him, because he was one of the few youngsters that travelled with the main group to USA.He has been pushing for a move since the day he signed for us. He forced his way out of Man City, he is trying to force his way out of Liverpool - I'm not sure how the club could ever "trust" him.
I have no problem with players feeling their careers are better served elsewhere and in Duncan's case he is probably right, he won't be breaking in to the front three anytime soon and Rhian Brewster/Paul Glatzel are more talented, but I'd be a bit annoyed now if I were the Academy staff that in just one year he has contacted Fiorentina, Nordsjaelland and several German clubs looking for a move.
He says he wants first team football. We can't offer that (he isn't a guaranteed starter for the U23s) and so I wouldn't be surprised to see us cut ties and let him get it elsewhere.
Man City also thought that Sancho had no chance to displace any of their front three, but look how things changed. If we let Duncan leave so easily that will be a great example of the next youngsters that want to leave the club, looking for new pastures. And that will also show the club looking weak and easy to manipulate.
Duncan is a top talent, he scored bags of goals, was instrumental in leading the club to the youth FA cup and scoring in the process 32 goals /top scorer of Liverpool U 18/ in all competitions.
The club will hopefully stand firm /like in Kent's situation/ and sooner rather than later LFC will reap the rewards while keeping in the club its best talents.
