Serbian international Marko Grujic has been given a deadline of two days to take a call on his future as Jurgen Klopp looks set to clear the deadwood from Anfield. Now after the recent summer acquisition of Red Bull Salzburg midfielder Naby Keita for £66m and they also went ahead and snapped former Real Madrid midfielder Fabhino from AS Monaco for reported sum of £38m, things have changed. Since coming on Board to manage the Reds in 2015, Jurgen Klopp has made a lot of changes at the Anfield and reinstating the squad has been the biggest of them all i reckon. Liverpool are yet to achieve a major title but with the squad they have built over the course of three years just shows the ambition and long term future of the club, but speaking about future Marko Grujic’s doesn’t look so bright as he has been told to make a decision within the next 48 hours.
Turkish football giants Galatasaray ae closely monitoring the situation of 22 year old Serbian Marko Grujic at Liverpool and are trying to offer him a way out of England on a permanent basis, Newly promoted Cardiff City are also showing an active interest in Marko Grujic he had spent the last season on loan with the Welsh based team, Their is no doubt that the Serbian international is not short of suitors and hence should look to get more regular play time elsewhere. He has a lot of potential but it can hamper his development if he chooses to fight for his place at the Anfield since their are better options available for Jurgen Klopp.
Grujic signed for Liverpool couple of seasons ago from Serbian based football club Red Star Belgrade for a sum of £5.1m, he rejected offers from Inter, Juventus, AC Milan and Chelsea stating that Klopp had convinced him to come on board and sign for the Reds, The Serbian was then sent back on loan to his former club and since then their have been more downs than ups in his career. Marko is yet to establish himself as a first team player despite showing a lot of potential he has failed to live up to the standards required and hence has been shown the door.
Grujic has so far only made 8 appearances for the Kops and was sent on loan to Cardiff City last season where he managed to feature in 13 games, hence he must loo to either leave on permanent basis or get a good move away on loan where he can continue his development and might just return to be a regular starter at the Anfield, with Galatasaray he may get exposure in European competition but not much in the domestic league due to lack of quality opposition.
With Cardiff City he will have ample of opportunities to prove himself in English Premier League and if he is really serious about representing Liverpool in the future as he said back in 2016 “I would chose Liverpool over Real Madrid and Barcelona” then should take the latter deal and who knows he might just make it.
