There have been rumors that the Arthur Melo loan deal with Liverpool can be terminated any time soon as a Brazilian club is interested in the midfielder.
Due to a long list of injuries prior to the World Cup break, Liverpool and Jurgen Klopp signed Melo from Juventus to add more options in the Reds squad.
After his arrival at Anfield, the former Juventus midfielder barely got time on the pitch and made very few appearances. And now there are circulations that his loan contract in Liverpool might be terminated any time soon as Brazilian club Palmerias are interested in signing him.
Arthur Melo spell Liverpool
In the midst of the season, the 26-year-old landed in England to assist in resolving some of Liverpool’s problems. He is yet to play in the league, with his first senior action in a red jersey being a brief 13-minute cameo in a European match against Napoli.
The Brazilian has at least had more time than normal to heal from a mid-season injury because of the break for the winter World Cup, so he’ll be aiming to get back in the game soon.
Two years ago, Miralem Pjanic moved from Juventus to Barcelona for €65 million, while Arthur cost Juventus €82 million. Arthur did at least have one of the greatest pass completion rates in Serie A last season, with 91 percent of his passes hitting their intended target, even though he may have failed to live up to that price tag in the seasons thereafter.
Arthur is going nowhere
After rumors surfaced that Arthur Melo’s loan agreement would be terminated, his representative announced that his client will stay in Liverpool in January.
The Brazilian battled with his health, which includes a thigh injury that kept him out of the World Cup. Despite signing on loan with the Reds for the season, he is yet to appear for the Merseyside club in the Premier League. Despite rumors of a potential early departure, Federico Pastorello, Arthur’s agent, has affirmed that his star won’t be traveling this winter.
