Brazilian footballer Fábio Henrique Tavares, better known as Fabinho, is coming to Saudi Arabia. The Saudi Pro League club has confirmed that the Liverpool player is joining Al-Ittihad, and has signed a three-year contract.

Fabinho shared: “Today I leave my home. It’s been five years wearing this jersey and always with the greatest honour and happiness possible. Thanks to Liverpool, I reached my highest level and played a World Cup. Thanks to Liverpool, I fulfilled my dream of walking into a stadium with my son in my arms.

“Thanks to Liverpool, I played in the best stadium in the world, with the best atmosphere in the world, which is Anfield. Thanks to Liverpool, I lived the biggest match of my life, the comeback against Barcelona, which was only possible thanks to Anfield. That moment will always be in my memory. I love this club. Thank you, Reds, for everything we’ve experienced together. You will never walk alone.”

Fabinho is from São Paulo, Brazil. He started his sporting career at Fluminense. In 2013, he joined Monaco. In 2018, he joined Liverpool and was offered a contract that was reportedly worth £39 million. Over his career, he has won the Champions League, Premier League, FA Cup and Club World Cup.

Fabinho is not the only player who is shifting to Saudi Arabia. Liverpool’s Jordan Henderson has signed with the Kingdom’s Al-Ettifaq. Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema made the jump to the country.  Plus, PSG’s Kylian Mbappe received an offer from a Saudi Pro League club.
