Carvalho bid rejected, Kounde ‘offer’ & Fabinho snub – Latest LFC News

On this bank holiday Monday there is news on Fabio Carvalho‘s future, albeit contradictory, plus tears from a potential signing and the return of a familiar manager to the league.


Contradicting reports on Carvalho after bid

Less than 24 hours after Liverpool’s season came to an end, there was seemingly no time to waste when it came to reports of what comes next for Carvalho.

Football Insider‘s David Lynch reported that Carvalho is “prepared to reluctantly accept a permanent departure,” with Liverpool receiving a “big-money bid” from an unnamed Champions League club.

The Athletic were then quick to state that the bid was not from Portugal and had been rejected, they also noted interest from Premier League clubs for a loan move.

The contradicting line, though, pertains to Lynch stating Carvalho “will not be part of Klopp’s first-team plans,” while the Athletic have been informed that Liverpool are “not considering a permanent exit at this time.” Either way, a summer move looks very likely.

It is no surprise that Carvalho’s future looks set to be away from Anfield, and you can understand if he harbours a desire to move on after just 638 minutes of action in his debut season.
