Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson is set to meet with manager Jurgen Klopp today ahead of a potential move to Saudi Arabia side Al Etifaq.
The veteran 33-year-old enjoyed a consistent season with the Reds, playing in all but three Premier League matches for the Anfield club last term.
Jordan Henderson set for Saudi U-turn?
As reported yesterday, Henderson was believed to want to stay at Liverpool and fight for his England spot ahead of next year’s European Championships- set to take place in Germany.
By the time Euro 2024 kicks off, Henderson will have turned 34, which will probably mark the end of his national team career but according to esteemed journalist David Ornstein, the former Sunderland man is now leaning towards a move in the knowledge he could potentially quadruple his current salary in Saudi Arabia and earn a mind-boggling $915,000 per week.
New Al Ettifaq manager Steven Gerrard remains keen on bringing his former teammate to the fast-developing Pro League but will likely have to fork out a transfer fee of around $13m for Henderson this summer with the Reds midfielder still having two years left on his current deal at Anfield.
