Fabinho checks into Melwood to agree LFC deal

Posted May 30, 2018

Liverpool have wasted little time picking up the pieces from their devastating Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid in Kiev, by confirming their first signing of the summer in the form of Brazil global Fabinho from Monaco in a deal which could be worth up to €50m.

Following news of Fabinho's move to Liverpool, he told the Anfield fans what to expect from him, admitting he is prone to the odd yellow card.

"After he arrived here he was able to achieve higher development at this football club".

Fabinho - who helped Monaco win the Ligue 1 title in 2016-17 - hopes he can adapt to the demands of the Premier League.

The Brazilian, whose deal will begin on 1 July, said the club's infrastructure looked "exceptional". Also, global caps for Brazil tells you something about him.

"We have signed a fantastic player, but someone who is an equally fantastic person I think", Klopp said. "This will of course make the adaptation easier".

The Brazil global completed a £39m move to Liverpool FC from AS Monaco on Monday evening to their summer spending underway.

"I'm still young, so I have a lot to learn in football and with Klopp I will have the chance to carry on growing and to keep learning".

The 24-year-old has managed to score 29 goals in three seasons for Monaco. "I will take time to reflect on things".

He added: "I believe I am a player that can organise the game well for my team".

Fabinho has been capped four times by his country but was omitted from their World Cup squad.

"The manager has said that he wants to work with great players". Considered a right-back in his early days, it was not until the second half of the 2014-15 season that Leonardo Jardim moved him to the defensive midfield berth - which proved to be a masterstroke. "I'm sure our supporters will make him very welcome and at home at our wonderful club and in our fantastic city".
