Fabinho set to leave Liverpool to move to the emerging Saudi Pro League.

Brazil midfielder Fabinho has left Liverpool to join Saudi Arabian side Al-Ittihad. The 29-year-old signed a three-year deal with the club on Monday.

Fabinho joined Liverpool from Monaco in 2018 and went on to make 219 appearances for the club. He helped Liverpool win the Premier League, Champions League, FA Cup, League Cup, and UEFA Super Cup during his time at Anfield.

“It’s been five years wearing this jersey and always with the greatest honor and happiness possible,” Fabinho wrote in a farewell message on social media. “I love this club. Thank you, Reds, for everything we’ve experienced together. You will never walk alone.”

Fabinho’s departure follows that of Jordan Henderson, who left Liverpool last week to join Al-Ettifaq. The two midfielders are the latest high-profile players to move to Saudi Arabia in recent years.

Al-Ittihad is a wealthy club that is looking to challenge for the Saudi Pro League title. The club has already signed a number of high-profile players in recent years, including Karim Benzema and N’Golo Kanté.

Fabinho’s arrival is a major coup for Al-Ittihad and will give the club a much-needed boost in midfield. The Brazilian is a versatile player who can play in a number of positions, and he will be a valuable asset to the club.

Fabinho’s departure is a blow to Liverpool, but the club has already moved to replace him by signing Alexis Mac Allister and Dominik Szoboszlai. The two midfielders are young and talented, and they will be hoping to fill the void left by Fabinho.

It will be interesting to see how Fabinho performs in Saudi Arabia. The league is not as competitive as the Premier League, but it is still a challenging environment. Fabinho will need to adapt to his new surroundings and prove himself to be a top player in the Middle East.
