Roberto Firmino's contract expires next summer. Both sides are seeking an extension. Talks between the Brazilian and Liverpool FC are said to be already underway. A decision is probably also related to the future of Jürgen Klopp.
Stressful weeks are ahead of those responsible at Liverpool FC. The contracts of Roberto Firmino (31), Naby Keïta (27), James Milner (36), Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (29) and Adrián (35) expire in the summer. All players are threatened with a free transfer. Negotiations with the first player are said to have started now. Roberto Firmino could soon extend.
As Sky reports, talks between the LFC managers and Firmino about a possible extension of the contract are going well. Firmino is said to be able to envision a future at Liverpool beyond the summer of 2023. There is a two-year extension in the room until June 2025. Firmino's decision should also depend on how things go with Jürgen Klopp. The relationship between the two is said to be very good.
Football Insider had also reported on contract talks. The football website adds that the Brazilian is likely to face significant pay cuts. To date, the 31-year-old is one of the top earners at the 19-time English champions. Firmino is currently said to earn up to eleven million euros a year. In the new contract, the salary should be lower, but can increase through performance-related bonuses.
Roberto Firmino had been the center of attention again this season. In the past season, voices had already been raised that the center forward's time was over. Many fans suspected that with the arrival of top new signing Darwin Núñez (23), Firmino would finally be sidetracked. On the contrary, the Brazilian is the most convincing LFC attacking player of the season with seven goals and three assists in 13 Premier League games.
