Liverpool goalkeeper set for La Liga move as Reds face massive conundrum

Liverpool goalkeeper Adrian San Miguel is poised for a return to Spain after reportedly reaching a verbal agreement with Real Betis.

The 37-year-old is out of contract with the Reds at the end of June and is expected to depart Anfield as a free agent.

According to Spanish outlet ABC (via Fabrizio Romano), Adrian has given the green light to the move, with only formalities remaining to complete the transfer.

These are likely to be finalised in July, paving the way for a sentimental return to Seville for the veteran shot-stopper.

Adrian spent 13 years with Betis, rising through their academy and enjoying a spell as their first-choice goalkeeper. He left for West Ham United in 2013 before joining Liverpool six years later.

He played a crucial role in the club’s 2019 UEFA Super Cup win over Chelsea, saving Tammy Abraham’s penalty.

Adrian remained a dependable deputy throughout his time with the Reds, earning the respect and admiration of teammates and supporters for his professionalism..

He will now return to his boyhood club to provide experienced cover behind first-choice Rui Silva following Claudio Bravo’s departure.

Liverpool face a massive goalkeeping conundrum

Adrian’s departure has put the Merseyside club in a sticky situation. The club must now enter the market for a new third-choice goalkeeper.

The club may also need a new number one and two. Alisson is reportedly a target for the Saudi Pro League, and they will try to entice him to move to the Middle East.

Caoimhin Kelleher is keen on leaving the Reds to become the first choice elsewhere, with Celtic among several clubs interested in his signature.

Liverpool must act fast to resolve their goalkeeping situation before the new season.
