Liverpool fans have taken to Twitter to react after the club announced that Marko Grujic had joined FC Porto on a permanent basis.
What’s the story?
Well, the 25-year-old’s five-year stay at Anfield is over.
Grujic was Jürgen Klopp’s first signing at Anfield, arriving in a £5.1m deal from Red Star Belgrade in 2016.
Grujic spent time on loan at Red Star Belgrade, Cardiff, Hertha Berlin and FC Porto, finding a permanent home at the latter club.
More great work from Michael Edwards
According to the Daily Mail, Liverpool have earned £10.5m from the sale of Grujic.
Grujic hasn’t really impressed hugely in recent seasons, and three goals in 41 appearances last term isn’t amazing.
In that respect, Liverpool have done superbly well to make £10.5m, and more than double their initial investment on the Serbian.
Hopefully, we’ll now see this money put towards new signings.
For now, let’s see how the Liverpool fans on Twitter reacted after the club announced Grujic’s departure…

Honestly thought if was given a good number of chances what Ibe n Brewster got, would have been the best replacement for Gini, all the very best though !! https://t.co/qBYtfDzh8I— vishnu (@vg_kings) July 20, 2021
