This week, a couple of reliable sources in Brazil have been reporting Sao Paulo’s desire to sign Liverpool midfielder Allan.
As the player’s loan stint at Fluminense has just expired, it’s very likely he will be moving from the Anfield outfit once again, either on a new loan or a permanent transfer.
Sao Paulo head coach Fernando Diniz has now spoken to the local press, and since he managed Fluzao earlier this year, he has been very close to Allan.
Speaking of the potential move, Diniz said (via Globo Esporte): “He’s a great player. I think São Paulo Paulo have to count on great players.
“He had a great season at Fluminense. I don’t know how these negotiations stand, but he’s a player who I really liked working with at Fluminense.”
Allan’s contract with the Reds expires in the next summer, so in case of a new loan, it is very likely he would sign an extension with the Reds first.
But the fact that he has had a good season in his homeland could finally help the PL side to make a profit with his sale since they have been loaning him consecutively for years now.
In other news, James Milner has penned a new contract with the Reds, keeping him at Anfield until June of 2022.
The all-around 33-year-old, who joined on a free transfer from Manchester City back in 2015 and has made 198 appearances, follows head coach Jurgen Klopp in penning a fresh deal and is now set to stay at the club until he is 36.
