Fabinho’s transfer to Saudi Pro League side Al-Ittihad has hit a stumbling block and is reportedly at risk of collapsing, with the midfielder now expected to rejoin pre-season training with Liverpool. The Brazilian midfielder had been in talks with the Saudi Pro League over a proposed £40 million transfer, but talks have been delayed and the deal is now in jeopardy.

According to reports from the Athletic, negotiations between the two clubs are still ongoing, but there has been a delay in the process. Fabinho was left out of Liverpool’s pre-season training camp in Germany by manager Jurgen Klopp, in anticipation of the transfer.

However, with the transfer now in doubt, Fabinho is expected to return to training with Liverpool on Wednesday, unless a resolution is found. Liverpool’s squad has returned to the UK and will soon embark on their pre-season tour in Singapore, where they are set to face Leicester on July 30 and reigning German champions Bayern Munich on August 2.

The delay to Fabinho’s transfer is said to be unconnected to reports that the 29-year-old may be unable to bring his beloved French bulldogs with him to Saudi Arabia, due to the country’s strict dog rules. While the issue of his pets has been a topic of discussion, it appears to be unrelated to the current delay in the transfer.

Fabinho has been a key player for Liverpool since joining from Monaco in 2018, making 122 appearances and helping the club win the Premier League, Champions League, and Club World Cup. His departure would be a significant blow to the club’s midfield, but if the transfer does fall through, it would provide a boost for Liverpool’s upcoming season.
