Reports from France claim that Jürgen Klopp’s desire to keep Fabinho at the club could be overruled by the Liverpool board and he could go on loan to PSG in Jan.

When the Brazilian midfielder was left out for the Reds’ Champions League clash with PSG midweek, it raised a red flag for a number of supporters given his experience of playing against the Ligue 1 giants.

The fans believe that his continued lack of consistent game time and in the big games, in particular, suggests that Klopp isn’t a fan and that there isn’t a long term future for him at Liverpool.

This is absurd for a number of reasons. Unlike at other clubs, Klopp has total control over who will join his side within reason and he even went so far as to comment on the absurd rumours in a recent press conference.


He told reporters: “Of course he will not leave. It’s the crazy world out there that if he doesn’t play the last five games then [people say] he will leave.”

According to L’Equipe – via the Bristol Post – Klopp wants to keep Fabinho and has no desire to sell or loan him out. That’s not news but what would be if it were to be true is that the German will be overruled by the Liverpool board and Fabinho will be sent on loan in January.

Apparently, the board is unhappy with how little the midfielder has played and will send him to PSG on a temporary basis but the Ligue 1 side will demand a mandatory €50m purchase option at the end of the season.
