Six Signings To Which NESV Would Have Said NO

Six deals that would not have happened under NESV regime Fernando Morientes
The Spanish international, signed for £6.3 million as a 28 year-old in January 2005, failed miserably at Anfield, scoring just 12 goals in 61 appearances. NESV 's belief in signing young players would have precluded the deal.
Robbie Keane Signed as a 28 year-old for £20.3  million in 2008, the Irish international would also have been judged by NESV to be too old to warrant such a premium fee.
Alberto Aquilani Though the Italian international's age (26) and pedigree would have still made him a legitimate target, concerns over his injury record would have ruled out a £17 million move for the Roma player, now on loan at Juventus.
Jamie Carragher
John W Henry may have been concerned by the sight of a 32 year-old being handed a lucrative two-year contract just before NESV completed its takeover.
Maxi Rodríguez The Argentine international, age 29, came on a free transfer from Atlético Madrid boasting a fine pedigree, but his wages, believed to be around £70,000 a week until June 2013, may have discouraged NESV from such a long contract.

Paul Konchesky A four-year contract for a 29 year-old – as well as a £5 million fee – does not match the profile of deal NESV believes can help Liverpool develop in the long- term.
