The Times, Daily Telegraph and Daily Mail all report that contract talks between the two parties have broken down for the time being, leaving the club captain’s future up in the air with two years left on his deal.
The situation could see a move for the 31-year-old from both Atletico and PSG, who are both reported to be monitoring the situation. Jurgen Klopp and the Anfield hierarchy are cautious of another player leaving in similar fashion to Georginio Wijnaldum, who departed for PSG on a free transfer this summer following failed talks over a contract extension.
PSG manager Mauricio Pochettino is reportedly an admirer of Henderson’s and likes his aggressive style on the pitch. A move from Les Parisiens would sum up their own aggressive recruitment this summer, potentially adding the midfielder to the likes of Sergio Ramos, Achraf Hakimi, Gianluigi Donnarumma and former Liverpool teammate Wijnaldum.
For Atletico Madrid, the England international’s qualities would fit well with Diego Simeone’s system. It would also see a potential reunion with ex-Liverpool striker Luis Suarez in the stadium in which Henderson lifted the Champions League with the Reds back in 2019.
