Alisson becomes the highest paid goalkeeper with 75 million dollars

Liverpool have broken the world record transfer fee for a goalkeeper by completing the signing of Alisson Becker from Roma for 75 million dollars.

Liverpool are paying an initial $ 65 m for Alisson plus $ 10 m in add-ons. These include bonuses for Champions League qualification and winning the competition, the Premier League or Europa League. Alisson’s former club in Brazil, Internacional, will receive $ 2.5 m of the initial $ 65 m fee from Roma.

Alisson said “I’m really happy, it’s a dream come true to wear such a prestigious shirt for a club of this size that is used to always winning. In terms of my life and my career, it’s a huge step for me being part of this club and this family. You can be certain that I’ll give my all.”

The team manager, Klopp said “There was a world-class goalkeeper on the market, and the club gave us the opportunity to sign him – simple as that. Of course, for a long time it’s been clear that Alisson is a top class goalkeeper, but there was never a real chance to do it. This year there was the chance.”
