Fabinho insists he is enjoying Life at Liverpool and after turning down the offer to join Paris Saint-Germain.

The Brazilian has become a mainstay in the Reds starting line-up and has played a pivotal role in their title ambition despite a slow start.

Fabinho joined Liverpool from Monaco in a £44m deal last summer but was linked with a return to France with Paris Saint Germain in November.

“I never thought of going elsewhere,” Fabinho told L’Equipe and cited via Sky.

“I know a lot of things were written in the newspapers, but it wasn’t true. What’s funny is that this PSG loan story came out just before our Champions League match [on November 28].

“I had already experienced a similar story the day before the Coupe de la Ligue final between PSG and Monaco [in March 2018]. It’s a strange coincidence, isn’t it?”

“If I had to sign at PSG, it’s the year before it could have been done,” Fabinho added.

“They were very interested, I talked a lot with Antero Henrique [PSG’s sporting director] and the club’s leaders, but it didn’t work. The year after, I did not wait for them and then I thought it was time to leave France.”
