In one of the weirder transfer rumours of the summer Liverpool midfielder Fabinho is set to join Spanish giants Real Madrid according to Colombian journalist Jose Luis Vergara.

He had tweeted earlier that they have received information about a midfielder who had agreed to join Read Madrid, many speculated that it would be Pogba or Eriksen

Soon after this he tweeted his exclusive news that it was actually Liverpools Brazilian midfielder Fabinho who is set for the move

He went on later to declare

“The Brazilian player returns to what was his home for a season. The transfer will be made official when the #Liverpool Close a replacement. The Spanish club will pay 65M € + 10 in variables, and the player’s salary will be 7.5M € annual”

Fabinho who only joined last summer from Monaco started his Liverpool career slowly however he soon stamped his authority on the pitch and was an integral member of the Champions League winning run, it would not be the first time that he was linked with a move away as last season he was constantly linked with a move to PSG.

With only a couple of days left in the transfer market I would take this rumour with a massive pinch of salt as Liverpool have shown no intention of letting any of their first team players leave this summer let alone their only defensive midfielder.
