Fabinho’s New Destination: Al-Ittihad
In the ever-changing world of football transfers, Fabinho’s leap to Al-Ittihad is reportedly on the horizon. Initial difficulties surrounding the transition seem to have subsided, paving the way for a smooth transaction between Liverpool and the Saudi Arabian side.
Paul Joyce, renowned for his impeccable sources, has confirmed that the dust has finally settled on Fabinho’s proposed relocation to Saudi Arabia. Liverpool and Al-Ittihad have reportedly agreed on a £40m deal, setting the stage for the Brazilian to join the ranks of Al-Ittihad.
Renewed expectation that Fabinho £40m move to Al Ittihad will go ahead after deal had stalled over payment terms to Liverpool. Talks started again. Liverpool first bid for Romeo Lavia was £34m plus £4m add ons and Southampton expecting another approach.

Joining Henderson in the Middle East
The Brazilian international will soon join fellow midfielder Jordan Henderson in the Middle East. This strategic move is expected to bolster Liverpool’s transfer kitty, facilitating the acquisition of Romeo Lavia, a rising star whose signature has been a long-held ambition for the Reds.
A Silver Lining amid Uncertainty
News earlier in the week suggested a possible snag in Fabinho’s transfer, which sparked fears among the Liverpool camp. Concerns were raised about the potential knock-on effects on the club’s summer transfer plans, with another midfield signing in the balance.
However, Fabinho’s move finally getting the go-ahead brings a sigh of relief for Liverpool. With the pending £40m injection from Fabinho’s transfer, the Reds are well-positioned to strategically plan their next moves in what promises to be a busy summer rebuild.
