It has emerged how Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp secretly met with Brazilian midfielder, Fabinho and convinced him to join Liverpool over Manchester United or any of the European giants. "If I will sign somewhere before the World Cup?"
Liverpool announced the signing on its website on Monday, saying Fabinho will officially join the club on July 1.
Jordan Henderson and James Milner have performed admirably in the holding role particularly in Europe, but in Fabinho Liverpool now have a specialist with more legs to cover space.
"After he arrived here he was able to achieve higher development at this football club".
The Champions League finalists hope to make the Brazil worldwide, 24, their first signing of the summer for a fee of around £39m (45m euros). "We have signed a fantastic player, but someone who is an equally fantastic person I think". "This will of course make the adaptation easier". "He detailed the way he works, his training, the history of the club, and his structures", he said.

With Monaco understandably slipping back this season following a summer of sales, Fabinho got through even more work previous year, winning 114 tackles - a total bettered by two players in Ligue 1.
"I spoke by phone with Firmino", he said, via RMC Sport.
On a possible move away from Lyon, Fekir said: "For now I am in Clairefontaine". The pace is high. "I will take time to think".
Brazil defender Thiago Silva later on Tuesday backed his compatriot to be a success at his new club.
With competition fierce at Real Madrid, Fabinho was on the move again at the end of the season, joining Monaco on a two-year-long loan deal.
