Liverpool is putting in the effort day in and day out to create something significant. More than only the necessity to rebuild the team, there is a moral need to do so for the supporters who have been terribly disappointed this season. They are entitled to a significant response from the club.
The Reds have made substantial moves in the transfer market, with an eye on an infinite list of individuals to drive the new era at Anfield.
The owners are rumored to be willing to provide Jurgen Klopp with the necessary financial backing in order for him to sign individuals he believes are suited for the squad. Something big is obviously cooking in the Merseyside club’s headquarters.
While examining the market for new suitors, Liverpool will also need to consider the contract position of numerous players in the current team and decide whether to keep them or not.
Contracts for Roberto Firmino, Naby Keita, and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, among others, are set to expire at the conclusion of the season.
James Milner is another veteran whose contract with Liverpool is coming to an end, and his future appears bleak. The player hasn’t been at his best this season, and given his age, the choice to extend must be made with caution.
According to Fabrizio Romano of the QueGolazo Podcast, the Englishman is expected to meet with Jürgen Klopp at the conclusion of the season to discuss his future at Liverpool, but the journalist believes the player is closer to leaving than signing a new deal.
I believe it is reasonable since the athlete is plainly showing signs of aging; he is 37 years old and is no longer the player he once was. Milner was once one of Liverpool’s most prominent players, but it can’t be the primary reason for a new contract.
The club is preparing for a significant rebuild, particularly in the midfield, and while I admire the person and everything he has done for Liverpool, I don’t see many reasons why he should remain another season.
