Liverpool have announced the signing of midfielder, Fabinho from Monaco for a fee of £39million plus bonuses of up to another £4million.

The move for the 24-year-old comes less than two days after Jurgen Klopp’s side were beaten by Real Madrid 3-1 in the Champions League final.

The Reds have said the Brazilian international’s move will complete on July 1, having finished a medical and signed a long-term deal with the club.

Speaking after signing for Liverpool, Fabinho told the club’s official website, “This is something that I always wanted – this is a giant of a team. The infrastructures of the club look exceptional.

“A football club of this size coming after my services, I didn’t have to think that much about coming over.

“I will try to create my own history at this football club. Hopefully, on a personal level, I’m able to win titles with this club.

“I will try to grow and learn and improve myself, and to be part of the club’s history.”

Fabinho further told RMC: “I’m really happy to join Liverpool. In the last transfer window, things were a little difficult. It was almost done, but I stayed.

“I’ve done great things with Monaco, it was great for five seasons. At Liverpool, I hope to have the same success. It’s a big club, really ambitious, which has done great things in recent seasons. They were in the Champions League final and were still among the leaders in the Premier League.

“I think I can grow a lot and learn a lot at this club. It’s a league I like a lot. I hope I can continue to develop at this great club.”
