About Liverpool
Liverpool (/ˈlɪvərpuːl/) is a city in North West England, with an estimated population of 478,580 in 2015. With its surrounding areas it is the fifth largest metropolitan area in the UK, with over 2.24 million people in 2011. The local authority is Liverpool City Council, the most populous local government district within the metropolitan county of Merseyside and the largest within the Liverpool City Region.
Liverpool sits on the eastern side of the Mersey Estuary, and historically lay within the ancient hundred of West Derby in the south west of the county of Lancashire. It became a borough in 1207 and a city in 1880. In 1889, it became a county borough independent of Lancashire. Its growth as a major port was paralleled by the expansion of the city throughout the Industrial Revolution. Along with general cargo, freight, raw materials such as coal and cotton, the city was also involved in the Atlantic slave trade. Liverpool was home to both the Cunard and White Star Line, and was the port of registry of the ocean liner RMS Titanic, the RMS Lusitania, Queen Mary and Olympic.
The popularity of The Beatles and other groups from the Merseybeat era contributes to Liverpool’s status as a tourist destination. Liverpool is also the home of two Premier League football clubs, Liverpool and Everton, matches between the two being known as the Merseyside derby. The city’s namesake club is the sole British club to win five European Cups. The world-famous Grand National horse race takes place annually at Aintree Racecourse on the outskirts of the city.
The city celebrated its 800th anniversary in 2007, and was European Capital of Culture together with Stavanger, Norway, in 2008. Several areas of the city centre were granted World Heritage Site status by UNESCO in 2004. The Liverpool Maritime Mercantile City includes the Pier Head, Albert Dock, and William Brown Street. Liverpool’s status as a port city has contributed to its diverse population, which, historically, was drawn from a wide range of peoples, cultures, and religions, particularly from Ireland and Wales. The city is also home to the oldest Black African community in the country and the oldest Chinese community in Europe.
Natives of the city of Liverpool are referred to as Liverpudlians, and colloquially as “Scousers”, a reference to “scouse”, a form of stew. The word “Scouse” has also become synonymous with the Liverpool accent and dialect. Another term for denizens of the city is Liverpolitan, although Liverpolitan may also be used for residents of the wider Liverpool City Region.

The Spanish newspaper carries a front page quoting Mbappe, the teenager who starred in Monaco’s swashbuckling run to the Ligue 1 title and Champions League semi-finals, as saying he “only wants to play in Madrid”.

 

He could get his wish should Cristiano Ronaldo leave the club in the wake of the probe into his tax affairs, but it would be bad news for the likes of Arsenal and Liverpool who have been linked with moves to bring Mbappe to England.

 

The Sun reports that Ronaldo has instructed his agent Jorge Mendes to “do anything possible” to force through a return to Manchester United, where he came to prominence between 2003 and 2009.

 

Chelsea will make an increased £60m bid for Juventus full-back Alex Sandro, according to the Daily Express and Daily Star, having had an initial offer turned down.

 

The Mirror reports that Southampton are keen on Austria defender Kevin Wimmer, 24, but want Tottenham to reduce their £20million asking price.

 

Striker Josh King has been linked with a move from Bournemouth to Tottenham but has committed himself to the Cherries, telling the Bournemouth Echo: “I was intrigued even being mentioned in the same sentence as Spurs, a big team who play in the Champions League. You never know in football but, hopefully, I will be here next year.”
