While Talks Over A New Contract Stall Jordan Henderson Is Facing Doubt About His Liverpool Future

According to reports, Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson’s future at the club is clouded in uncertainty, with no’real’ movement on a new contract achieved.
Henderson, who has been at Anfield since coming from Sunderland in 2011, has begun negotiations about extending his contract, which is slated to expire in 2023.
But, according to The Athletic, the talks have so far failed to result in an agreement, and the situation has been described as “complex” and “delicate.”
Jordan Henderson’s future at Liverpool is unknown, as talks over a new contract have stalled. It has been emphasised, however, that both parties are still in contact, as they have been throughout the summer.
Henderson, who appears to be caught in limbo and will be 33 when his current contract expires, might attract a slew of suitors.
According to the same article, Mauricio Pochettino, the manager of Paris Saint-Germain, is keeping a close eye on developments.
So far, talks between captain Henderson and the club have failed to make’real’ progress. Henderson has helped Liverpool win the Premier League and the Champions League. Atletico Madrid is reportedly interested in signing Henderson, though it has been suggested that the club may not have the financial means to do so.
Henderson might follow in the footsteps of Giorginio Wijnaldum, who was free to depart Merseyside earlier this summer after failing to agree to a new contract and quickly joining PSG.
Nonetheless, this would appear to go against Jurgen Klopp’s wishes, as the two men are still close.
Henderson is also the one who sets the bar for his teammates.
The Athletic go on to add that if Klopp was the sole decision-maker, Henderson and Liverpool would have already worked out the details.
Jurgen Klopp is thought to be anxious for Henderson to stay, and the two are still on good terms. But, FSG president Mike Gordon and sporting director Michael Edwards make the final decisions, as proven by Wijnaldum’s ability to depart.
‘It’s the contract that hasn’t gotten much attention but tells the biggest tale,’ a source told The Athletic.
‘This is a crucial summer for Jordan.’ Henderson is unlikely to stay at Liverpool only to be a wise pair of shoulders in the dressing room, and he is eager to continue excelling on the field.
The club has a two-year window to decide on their captain’s future, but it is not in either party’s best interests to let talks drag on until the final months.
Henderson is on vacation this summer after guiding England to the Euro 2020 final, but negotiations are anticipated to continue in the interim.
There is a belief that if Liverpool does not offer conditions that are commensurate with Henderson’s achievements, an emotional breakup is more possible.
The news comes as the club prepares to extend the contracts of a number of first-team players, including Virgil van Dijk, Mohamed Salah, and Alisson.
