Report: £180k-a-week Liverpool player has 'no chance' of leaving this summer, amid reports of European interest

According to a report from Goal, there is no chance that Roberto Firmino will leave Liverpool over the summer, contrary to other reports.

Firmino has been tipped as one of the Liverpool players who could move on this summer. The arrivals in the last two seasons of Diogo Jota and Luis Diaz have pushed Firmino down the pecking order. Goal claims there is interest from Bayern Munich, but they also report that there is zero chance of the Brazilian leaving Liverpool this summer.

It’s claimed that Firmino will be allowed to run down the final year of his contract. Of course, this is a stance Liverpool have taken with a number of players in recent years, with the likes of Gini Wijnaldum and Divock Origi doing similar.

Firmino has been a key cog in Jurgen Klopp’s team over the years. The forward is loved at Anfield, and former defender Jamie Carragher recently used the term ‘what a player’ to describe the Brazilian.

The striker is said to earn around £180k-a-week at Anfield, making him one of the higher earners. With uncertainty over the futures of both Mane and Salah, Jurgen Klopp will be keen to keep Firmino around if he can.

Liverpool and Klopp seem to manage these situations very well. There never seems to be any sort of sulking from any party and it’s a case of getting on with it for the good of the club.

If Firmino does leave next summer, then it will be with the club’s blessing and on his own terms you feel. And he deserves that, such has been his brilliance at the club.

Labelled as an ‘elite’ player by Ian Wright, there is no question that Bobby Firmino is one of Liverpool’s best ever signings.
