The 31-year-old Roberto Firmino’s contract with Liverpool expires next June and the player chose to leave, although Liverpool have made an offer to extend it.
And according to Sky Sport Germany, on Friday, Firmino informed his German coach Jurgen Klopp of his intention to leave after the end of this season.
The conversation between Firmino and Klopp was cordial and characterized by the utmost frankness between the two sides, and despite the German manager’s high praise for the Brazilian striker, the latter opted to retire after the end of this season.
According to press reports, Firmino has 3 options for the coming summer, especially since it will be a free deal for any club.
First choice from the Italian league, where previous press reports claimed that Juventus and Inter were interested in the player.
Secondly, it could be a return to one of the clubs in the German league where Firmino shone at the beginning of his career on the European continent.
As for the third option, it could be the Saudi Pro League, especially since press reports have suggested that Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo’s club Al-Nasr was initially interested in the Brazilian player.
Roberto Firmino appeared in 352 matches with Liverpool in various competitions during which he scored 107 goals and scored 78 goals and won many titles with him, most notably in the English or continental league such as the Champions League.
