Fabinho’s move from Liverpool to Al-Ittihad is said to be in danger of bursting for a curious reason: Loud Express the Brazilian’s two French bulldogs should not be allowed to travel to Saudi Arabia.
According to the report, regulations in Saudi Arabia ban “dangerous and aggressive dogs” – and the two bulldogs could fall into this category because of their breed.
Al-Ittihad have reportedly bid €45m for the midfielder, who was not taken on the friendly trip to Germany by coach Jurgen Klopp.
Fabinho started small in Europe, starting at Rio Ave in Portugal and also playing for Real Madrid’s second team on loan. In 2015 he made a permanent move to AS Monaco, three years later he went to Anfield Road for 45 million euros.
Fabinho has made 151 Premier League appearances for the Reds, with which he won the Champions League and Premier League titles. He has made 29 appearances for Brazil so far.
Recently there were rumors that FC Bayern Munich had their eye on Fabinho. Since they cannot compete financially with the Saudis, FCB only wants to take action if the deal fails. Fabinho is under contract with the Reds until 2026.
