Liverpool have already lost a key defensive-minded midfield this summer for free, so the Reds can not afford to lose a similar type of player this summer at any cost.
Of course, Georginio Wijnaldum decided to leave Anfield and opt for a move to Paris Saint-Germain – despite seemingly looking to be joining FC Barcelona – and reminded everyone what he was capable of doing as he led The Netherlands during their poor European Championships this summer.
Now, whilst the Dutchman is Liverpool’s past, Jordan Henderson is the current and hopefully the future of the club, although questions and some rather concerning noises are starting to emerge that make that potential scenario appear to be a little doubtful at the moment.
Reports have started to emerge suggesting that talks about a new contract for the club’s current captain and the England international midfielder have completely stalled and that there is ‘significant uncertainty over his Liverpool future’ at the moment because of the issues.
The claim has come from the reputable journalist, David Ornstein, as he made the announcement on his Twitter page, with a link to the article that he published with James Pearce for The Athletic on Monday morning; not the best way to start the week as a Liverpool fan! To make things better, it might be worth heading to a Thai live casino and forgetting about all the negative thoughts a Henderson move could bring and turn them into a positive by winning big!
Liverpool fans can rest assured that Henderson will not be going anywhere for the time being – at least for free – as his current deal does not expire until 2023, but there is concern that he could leave this summer or next as they do not want a repeat of what happened with Wijnaldum.
If that happens, Liverpool’s best opportunity to receive the money that they would value Henderson at would be this summer, as he would have to be available for a cut-price in 12 months, before ultimately leaving for free should he decide to a further year down the line.
Everyone knows that Jurgen Klopp loves his skipper and rates the midfielder seemingly higher than anybody else within football, it would be a huge blow to any title hopes that the Reds have if he were to leave.
Should the 31-year-old, however, decide he wants to experience a change of scene, it is believed he could reunite with former Liverpool team-mates at a number of different clubs said to be interested.
He could potentially look to follow Wijnaldum to the French capital and join Mauricio Pochettino, whilst he could head further south and go to the Spanish capital and join Luis Suarez, with Atletico Madrid said to be rumoured as potential suitors.
