Report: 27-year-old Liverpool player has already agreed exit, but move could now be scuppered by takeover

Divock Origi’s expected move from Liverpool to AC Milan is not a done deal just yet and could still break down.

That’s according to journalist Miguel Delaney. Writing in his weekly ‘Reading The Game‘ newsletter for The Independent, Delaney claimed that Origi has a ‘provisional’ deal with Milan.

He continued that although the Belgian is ‘likely’ to join the Italian club, nothing has been signed by either party.

And Origi could still be left disappointed in his wish to play for the Rossoneri. Delaney claims that ‘much depends’ on whether the proposed takeover of the club goes through or not.

More motivation for Origi

Whether or not Origi joins Milan this summer is largely immaterial for Liverpool. As the 27-year-old is out of contract at the end of the season, The Reds will not miss out on any transfer fee should the move break down.

Instead, Divock will be left to look for a new club as a free agent.

As a knock-on effect, this could in turn be in Liverpool’s favour. Without the security of a planned move, Origi could be more inclined to impress prospective suitors by starring when given the chance for The Reds.

The player already needs no extra incentive to perform when the stakes are highest. But a motivated Origi heading into the final weeks of the season could be the difference for Liverpool
