'We'll see': Marko Grujic confirms he'll start pre-season with Liverpool

Marko Grujic has confirmed that he’ll start pre-season with Liverpool. There’s a lot of speculation around the player’s future.

No one yet knows where Marko Grujic will play next season. There remains an outside chance it’s with Liverpool, though.

There’s a gap in the squad after Gini Wijnaldum left and the Reds haven’t yet filled it. That could be a spot Grujic takes, then, though it feels unlikely.

What we do know is that Grujic will start pre-season with Liverpool. He confirmed as much on Monday.

Grujic to start pre-season with Liverpool

“I will soon join Liverpool’s preparations, to do that basic part, so we’ll see the next step,” he told Sportske.net.

“We’ll see which club I’m going to play for, I don’t know at the moment, but as for the blue colours, I think I’ve done well in the last three seasons.

“Of course, it can always be better!”

Grujic certainly has gotten used to playing in blue. He had a fairly successful half-season in the Championship with Cardiff City a few years ago, before spending two campaigns with Hertha BSC.

Last season saw the Serbian join FC Porto and he ended up playing a fairly significant role. Enough, certainly, that they reportedly want him back.

O Jogo claims they won’t give up on moving for Grujic, despite not having the funds to pay Liverpool’s asking price just yet. But Hertha also want him back, per A Bola, and they provide stiff competition.

Grujic’s future

The way we see, Grujic is almost certainly leaving soon. It just seems that no one is quite ready to front money and make it happen.

But for a 25-year-old with Champions League, Bundesliga and Liga NOS experience, someone will come in and pay that reported £12m. It’s a bargain, in truth, and one many clubs will see that way.

So we feel confident about Liverpool getting their money and boosting their transfer funds. Grujic is just too good and the fee is too low to for no one to get interested.

It’s just going to take time, it seems. We didn’t think Grujic would still be on the books, really, and expected him sold by now. Perhaps Euro 2020 is delaying movement in the market – we’ll have to wait and see if things pick up in a week or two.

As for now, Grujic will start pre-season with Liverpool. But we don’t think he’ll be around when it ends.
