Negotiations with £160k/month star ongoing; Liverpool ‘in talks, but nothing is clear yet’

Liverpool are in talks with Adrian San Miguel over a potential contract extension, with the 34-year-old telling Marca that he hopes to stay the club.

When asked by the Spanish publication what the future holds for him, he replied: “I am happy here. It is true that this second season personally has been quite irregular. The club has made me see that they are happy with me.

“We are in talks, but nothing is clear yet. It will have to be solved between now and the end of the season. The most important thing is to remain happy and enjoy this profession. I would like to continue here, but there are quite a few points to clarify and make the best decision for all parties.”

Adrian’s time at Liverpool could not have begun in a more dramatic and heroic manner as he won a penalty shootout against Chelsea in the UEFA Super Cup but since then, it’s all been downhill.

The former West Ham United goalkeeper has made a multitude of errors, with his display against Aston Villa one of the worst performances in net I’ve ever seen.

That being said, if he’s happy to stay at the club as third-choice goalkeeper behind Alisson Becker and Caoimhín Kelleher, then it makes sense. His experience will help his younger Irish teammate develop and it’s unlikely that he’ll be called into action as the third choice shot-stopper.

Liverpool have a massive transfer window ahead of them as they look to return to the heights of the last few years.

Michael Edwards can’t be bogged down by the chore of signing a third-choice goalkeeper so it makes more sense to extend Adrian’s contract for a year or two.
