James Milner will quit Liverpool and rejoin Leeds United at the end of the season if his former club earns promotion to the Premier League.
The 32-year-old midfielder left his boyhood club back in 2004 and has since gone on to represent Newcastle United, Aston Villa, Manchester City and current team Liverpool.
James Milner has played a crucial role in the Reds’ title push this season, featuring in all 12 of their matches – nine of those being starts – while also being used three times in the Champions League.
The Daily Star is reporting, however, the ex-England international will seek a transfer to Elland Road if his former club secure a place in the top flight in 2019-20.
Liverpool have yet to tie James Milner down to a new deal, meaning that he will become a free agent next summer as things stand.
But considering how deep is Liverpool’s midfield we may presume that Jurgen Klopp will let him leave on free and even no additions will be required as Fabinho, and Naby Keita have arrived this summer.
Giorginio Wijnaldum and Jordan Henderson are also reliable options and are aces under Jurgen Klopp’s sleeve.
