Liverpool target Andre Trindade confirms the fact that he was offered a “dream deal” to leave Fluminense in the summer transfer window.
Reds were heavily linked with Andre this summer as reports suggest they were in talks with the midfielder over a transfer. However, the 22-year-old decided to stay at Fluminense to push their Copa Libertadoras triumph.
Reports also suggests that Liverpool will return for him in the January transfer window. Reds are very much interested bring a defensive midfielder to their ranks.
Speaking on the Copa Libertadoras account on X, Andre opened about his failed move to Liverpool this summer. He said :-
“There’s a lot of things, the last window I didn’t talk about it.
“It was really I couldn’t refuse; the club, the league, every player dreams to play in a big European club, a big European league.
“I decided to keep my word and stay, because when the January window closed, [Fernando] Diniz [Fluminense manager] told me he wanted me until the end of the year. We didn’t know an offer like that would appear, and no matter what, I’d stay until December. Months passed by, and in the European summer window, we were in the round of 16 of Libertadores.
“It was a really hard decision, I think that if I’ve accepted that offer, I don’t know if I’d feel 100% comfortable with myself, because I gave my word to Diniz, and he values the word a lot, the honesty.
Andre is looking forward to start of the new year brings more him
Andre remains positive of the possible outcomes in the January transfer window and said :-
“By the end of the year, I don’t know exactly what will happen, a lot of things can happen.
“But I’m sure that being here, knowing everything went right, helped me a lot as a person, and also helped my career, I got all the national team call-ups of the year. So I think that, as Diniz talked, when we do the right thing, be loyal and honest, good things always happen.”
