Arthur Can Now Terminate Liverpool’s Lease Deal Ahead of Schedule in Order to Return to Brazil


Although there is no exit clause in Arthur’s loan deal with Liverpool, interest from Brazil may now lead to Juventus ending their stay at Anfield ahead of schedule.

Arthur joined the Reds at the end of the summer transfer window, but spent most of his time at Merseyside recovering from a long-standing hip injury.

The problem that arose during additional training during the international break required surgery, due to which he has been excluded for more than three months.

A total of 13 minutes on the pitch has raised questions about whether Liverpool will be able to break the lease in January and pursue a new goal in midfield.

But their agreement with Juventus did not include a single clause that would allow the club to terminate the deal in the middle of the season.

This led to the belief that Arthur would remain at Anfield until the end of the campaign, which was confirmed by his agent Federico Pastorello in an interview in December.

However, Brazilian journalist Felippe Fasincani said that the 26-year-old could indeed leave as Palmeiras is considering a final move.

Speaking on his YouTube channel, Facincani explained that Arthur’s representatives are working on returning to Brazil, although the deal with Janauri will be “very difficult.”

This is due to the high salary of the player at Juventus, as well as the desire of the Italian club to keep him in Europe.

Palmeiras is said to have “dreamed” of signing Arthur, although they are also weighing up alternatives ahead of the 2023 season, which starts in April.

A move to the Brazilian champions may be more likely in the summer, but Wut Weghorst’s recent move to Manchester United shows that such a move is possible.

Weghorst joined Besiktas on loan for a season in July and then switched clubs earlier this month as United reached an agreement with both parent club Burnley and the Turkish side to replace him with Cristiano Ronaldo.

The difficulty of repeating this with Arthur is that Palmeiras is unlikely to have as much money as United, and a move at the end of the English season could lead to him missing only six weeks of league games in Brazil.

However, this scenario is worth keeping an eye on, especially because it could suit Liverpool if they are exploring the possibility of signing a midfielder this month.

Currently, Arthur occupies a non-local place in the Premier League and Champions League teams, and any departure in the middle of the season will make room for another such arrival.
