Liverpool midfielder on the verge of departing Anfield in the summer
Liverpool midfielder Lucas Leiva is close to ending his association with the club. The Brazilian has been at Anfield since the summer of 2007 and helped Jurgen Klopp settle at Anfield when the German came to England.
Lucas is the oldest player at Liverpool among the current group of players. He has started only six games this season and many of them were out of his preferred central midfield position. Jurgen Klopp has more often used the Brazilian as a centre back, a position he has done ok in, though not convincingly.
Inter Milan wanted to sign him during the January transfer window, but Lucas decided to stay and help Liverpool qualify for the Champions League next season, with that goal almost attained, the focus has now shifted to his future.
The 30 year old will have one year left on his deal at the end of this season and wants clarification from Klopp about his plans for him.
According to Lucas he is undoubtedly committed to Liverpool, but he would sit with his manager at the end of the season and they will make a collective decision on his future.
