Read Up “With his deal to Saudi Arabia in doubt, Fabinho will return to Liverpool pre-season training.” The 29-year-old was scheduled to sign a £40 million agreement to join Al Ittihad, but according to David Ornstein of The Athletic, there has been a delay in the transaction.
As was widely reported yesterday, the Brazilian midfielder’s two French bulldogs had nothing to do with the delay.
However, the deal has fallen through, and it is rumored that both teams are still trying to reach an agreement, with Al Ittihad still eager to sign the player.
However, until there is progress in negotiations, Fabinho is currently back in Liverpool and scheduled to report to the club’s AXA Training Centre on Wednesday.
When asked about Kyle Walker’s rumored transfer to Bayern Munich, Pep Guardiola held his cards close to his breast.
The manager of Man City emphasized that the club wants him to remain there when speaking at a press conference this afternoon from Japan. However, he did disclose that the club is in discussions with Bayern.
Tomorrow, City will participate in a preseason friendly against Bayern, and Pep Guardiola has hinted that Walker may possibly get a game against the German giants.
The manager of the city said, “I hear the comments that Thomas [Tuchel] made about Kyle, and I will say the same thing: I have no comment.”
“I will say that he is an extremely important player for us,” the coach said. He possesses certain attributes that are so uncommon to discover anywhere else in the globe. His particular qualities cannot be replicated by anyone else.
“We want him, definitely, but I don’t know what will happen in the end. Both clubs are in communication with one another, and I am confident that Bayern will battle for him just as hard as we will. I have no idea how it will come to a close.
When asked if Walker will participate in tomorrow’s match against Bayern, Guardiola added:
“He is a member of our team. Why shouldn’t he play? We have to compete against Bayern, and we can’t do that without our top players.
