Trent Alexander-Arnold made a future decision over Liverpool stay

The Reds’ vice-captain is nearing the end of his current contract, but an extension is expected considering his role and relationship to the Merseyside giants.

However, as things stand, Liverpool are at risk of losing their academy star for free in 2025, which may necessitate a sale this summer if he does not sign a contract.

Amid the current uncertainty, La Liga leaders Real Madrid appear to be interested in signing Alexander-Arnold this summer as they prepare to replace the ageing Dani Carvajal at right-back.

It has been alleged that the England international is postponing talks on a new Liverpool contract in order to give Real Madrid a boost, but he is merely looking forward to finishing the season strong before considering his future.

Talks between the club and Alexander-Arnold’s representation are set to take place once the season ends, as Liverpool has no plans to split ways with the defender.

According to Football Insider, Alexander-Arnold is “very keen” to extend his time at the Anfield club, where he has played for 20 years since joining as a schoolboy in 2004.

According to the source, the 25-year-old is “flattered” by Real Madrid’s interest in his services. However, he is not really considering joining Los Blancos and instead intends to reach an agreement with Liverpool soon.

New sporting director Richard Hughes and Michael Edwards, who has returned to Liverpool’s owners Fenway Sports Group as their new football CEO, are expected to play major roles in securing new contract terms for Alexander-Arnold.

The right-back, who became van Dijk’s deputy this summer, may be eligible for a raise to reflect his increased responsibilities. His current deal appears to include £180,000 per week.

The Champions League and Premier League-winning full-back is likely to sign a new contract at the Anfield.

Nonetheless, after successfully rebuilding their midfield in 2023, Liverpool is preparing to make a little defensive adjustment.

Experienced center back. Joel Matip is now in the final three months of his contract with the Reds and may have already played his last game for the club, having suffered a season-ending knee injury in December.

Jurgen Klopp, who is also leaving the Reds this summer, intimated following Matip’s ACL tear that the Cameroonian could be handed a short-term contract extension, but no negotiations are currently scheduled.

Nat Phillips and Rhys Williams, who have failed to establish themselves as regulars for Klopp since their spectacular exploits in 2020-21, are likely to depart, while the forgotten Sepp van den Berg has conceded that he may need to contemplate leaving as well.
