Liverpool star set to leave club after 10 years at Anfield

By | April 19, 2017

As Liverpool holding midfielder Lucas Leiva has revealed, he may move on from the Merseyside club this summer after 10 years at Anfield.


The 30-year-old South American has joined the Reds from Brazilian side Gremio back in 2007 and has played more than 300 games for the Premier League club.

However, Lucas has only made nine Premier League starts under Jurgen Klopp this term and there have been a number of reports suggesting he could leave Anfield at the end of the season.

The current deal of the Brazilian midfielder expires at the end of 2017/18 but while he insists he’s only focused on securing qualification for the UCL, he did suggest his time at Merseyside could be up in the summer as he had been there ‘long enough’.

During his interview, Lucas spoke about his future: ‘Listen, I would love to have the right answer for you, the 100% answer I’d say.

‘I have got one more year left after this, but I think I need to just concentrate on the next five games. I have been here long enough and if the time comes for me to go somewhere else I think I will leave with the feeling that I did everything I could.

‘I don’t really know what will happen. I just need to focus on the last five games. The last few games I have played I feel very good. I have played centre-back and midfield, so I give some options to the manager and when he needs me I always try to deliver.’ He added.
