Four Players That’ll Leave Liverpool After UCL Final Vs Real Madrid



Four Players That’ll Leave Liverpool After UCL Final Vs Real Madrid

Liverpool will say goodbye to several players after the Champions League final on Saturday against Real Madrid.

The popular Divock Origi will play no part against Los Blancos, Jurgen Klopp said. The Belgian, poised to join newly-crowned Italian champions AC Milan on a free transfer, will leave having scored 41 goals in 175 games at Anfield.

Goalkeeper Loris Karius has not played a single competitive match for Liverpool since a disastrous evening in Ukraine, in which he made errors for two of Los Blancos’ three goals. Karius’ contract expires like Origi’s and he will be free to move on having made 49 appearances for the club.

Ben Woodburn is another player who will depart at the end of his contract. The 11-cap Wales international has only made 11 senior appearances for Liverpool but had a fruitful spell with Scottish Premiership side Hearts this term. Manager Robbie Neilson has already stated his desire to sign Woodburn permanently.

And the fourth player who is currently set to exit on a free is the vastly experienced James Milner. Liverpool is in talks to hand Milner a new deal, but it is uncertain whether the 36-year-old will sign a short-term extension to stay on Merseyside a little longer or move on. He could complete an emotional return to boyhood club Leeds United, who survived relegation from the Premier League on the last day if he wants a fresh challenge.

There has been some speculation that third-choice goalkeeper Adrian is also out of contract this summer but it appears the Spaniard still has 12 months to run on his deal. Neco Williams, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Takumi Minamino, Ben Davies and Nat Phillips could also all move on.
