Marko Grujic has made a permanent move from Liverpool to Portuguese heavyweights Porto. After a loan stint at Portugal, the 25-year-old midfielder has taken a decision to make the deal permanent.
Grujic arrived at the club in 2016 as the first-ever signing by the current gaffer, Jurgen Klopp. However, due to the lack of playing time, the Serbian international was mostly loaned to different clubs from the Merseyside giants.
The Dragons had a decent season but surrendered the Portuguese league title to rivals Sporting CP.
Grujic leaves, what next for Liverpool?
Marko Grujic joined Liverpool from Serbian giants Red Star Belgrade in 2016. However, he didn’t feature much for Klopp’s side and was loaned to his former club, and then Cardiff City. Then, he had loan stints at Hertha Berlin and recently, Porto.
He made just 16 appearances for the Premier League club and scored just a single goal. However, he enjoyed a better time at Porto, scoring two goals and making 39 appearances. At Berlin, he was enjoying an even better time and was almost a regular.
On the official club website, Liverpool bid farewell to the Serbian midfielder,
“Grujic joined up with Klopp’s squad for this month’s pre-season training camp in Austria and will now bid farewell to link up with Porto permanently. Everyone at Liverpool FC thanks Marko for his contributions to the club and wishes him the best in his future career.”
He also scored in the 7-2 win over Lincoln City in the Reds’ League Cup campaign and then made a loan move to the Portuguese heavyweights. He would be keen on winning a trophy with the club as Porto begin their pre-season preparations.
Liverpool have set up training camp at Austria for the pre-season and are now currently concentrating on injury recoveries of some of their key players. They have friendlies against Mainz, Hertha Berlin, Athletic Club and Osasuna before locking horns with newly-promoted Norwich City on 14th August in the Premier League.
