25-year old Brazil’s Alisson Becker has made football history becoming the world’s most expensive goalkeeper. This is coming after his move to Liverpool from Roma for a world record fee of £65million.
According to reports, Alisson arrived Merseyside on Thursday where he signed a six-year deal with the club. Upon penning his signature on the deal, the Brazil international told the Liverpool website: ‘I’m really happy, it’s a dream come true to wear such a prestigious shirt for a club of this size that is used to always winning.
‘In terms of my life and my career, it’s a huge step for me being part of this club and this family. ‘You can be certain that I’ll give my all.’ On the world record deal, Liverpool coach Jurgen Klopp told the club website: ‘At one point in the last few weeks it came up, the opportunity to sign one of the world’s best goalkeepers – then it’s not a long thought, to be honest, it’s only that you need to have a little talk with the owners! They were quite excited, so we did it.’I think it’s something we have to do. He has nothing to do with the price, we have nothing to do with the price, it’s the market, that’s how it is and we will not think a lot about it
