Liverpool are set to bid goodbye to their longest serving player from the current squad as Lucas Leiva is all set to leave Anfield. Lazio from the Serie A have reportedly had a £5million offer accepted by us and that means the 30-year-old Brazilian will be playing in Italy next season.
Lucas was expected to leave the side in the winter window last season and with only 12 months left on his current contract, this is a better deal than losing him for free. However, the Brazilian was one of the most liked players in the team and always put club before himself as he played a number of games as a centre-back too.
This certainly is a transfer that is a bit hard to take given his commitment to the club but alas, all good things have to come to an end. Our fans were also of the notion and shared a number of tweets displaying their affection for the former Gremio man. Read on!
It’s sad day Lucas from Liverpool is leaving L.F.C. Good player , and wonderful player . We will miss you ❤️

The biggest compliment I can pay Lucas Leiva is that he wasn’t just a Liverpool player, he was a Liverpool Supporter. A true fan. One of us.

If Lucas goes I’ll be devastated.
Only scouser left in the squad and the only one who knows what it means to play for Liverpool ⚪ #LFC

Good lack to him! A person to respect our family. His character, his passion for the club, makes him a legend for LFC! Thanks Lucas! YNWA

Lucas leaving Liverpool is sad enough, but him joining Lazio is just depressing.
