Thiago to Barca AND Fab & Hendo to Saudi?! – Latest LFC News

Well, Thursday has proved to be anything but quiet! It’s been a busy day of news for Liverpool with both Jordan Henderson and Fabinho linked with moves to Saudi Arabia.


Henderson ACCEPTS Saudi move

It has been quite the day when it comes to the captain’s future so we will keep it as succinct as possible for you!

He has been offered in the region of £700,00 per week to join Steven Gerrard‘s Al Ettifaq, naturally that got fans talking, and by the middle of the day journalist Fabrizio Romano claimed he had accepted.

That green light would see Liverpool seek to agree a transfer fee for the 33-year-old, several Merseyside-based journalists have claimed that the club will want in the region of £20 million.

Henderson was spotted training as normal as pre-season continues for the Reds at the AXA, but we expect developments to continue at speed so watch this space!

It has been a lot to take in and it really would be a legacy changing move from Henderson, and not for the better.
