Liverpool fans will love Fabinho’s response to PSG transfer rumours

PSG have been linked with a bizarre bid for Liverpool midfielder Fabinho.

Fabinho has dismissed talk of leaving Liverpool for Paris-Saint Germain.

The Brazilian midfielder moved to Anfield from Monaco in a £39.3m deal in July and has no intention of leaving Liverpool to return to France.

Bizarre rumours had surfaced claiming that PSG hoped to test Liverpool’s resolve in January, but there’s no chance of the Reds selling Fabinho, or the player wanting a return to France.

He told L’Equipe: “I never thought of going elsewhere.

“I know a lot of things were written in the newspapers, but it wasn’t true. What’s funny is that this PSG loan story came out just before our Champions League match [in November].

“And I had already experienced a similar story the day before the final of the Coupe de la Ligue between PSG and Monaco [in March 2018]. It’s a strange coincidence, isn’t it?”

Fabinho admits he held talks with PSG a year before he signed for Liverpool.

The 25-year-old had to wait for his chance at Anfield, but has since impressed in both midfield and defence for Jurgen Klopp’s side.

He added: “In fact, if I had to sign at PSG, it’s the year before it could have been done.

“They were very interested, I talked a lot with Antero and the club’s leaders, but it didn’t work.

“The year after, I did not wait for them… And then, I thought it was time to leave France.”
