ENGLAND – Liverpool midfielder, Fabinho, turned down interest from some of Europe’s top clubs in summer 2018, to join the club, according to The UK Telegraph.
The Reds paid Monaco £39million for the Brazilian and Fabinho went on to win the Champions League in his first season at Anfield.
In an interview, Fabinho’s brother-in-law, Ricardo Assis, said: “Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United, Manchester City, and Juventus also talked to his agent.
“But it was Liverpool that made all the effort to sign him.
“[Jurgen] Klopp showed him videos of the team, explained why he wanted to sign him but he also made it clear that it wouldn’t be straightforward for him to be a regular starter from the beginning.
“Fabinho left the meeting determined to join Liverpool.”
