Liverpool key midfielder linked with shock Anfield exit

James Milner is out of contract at the end of this season and is linked with a move to former club Leeds United and despite having left the side back in 2004, many Whites fans remain incredibly fond of academy graduate.

The Liverpool midfielder, who has turned out in midfield, on the wing and at full-back, famously pipped Wayne Rooney as the Premier League’s youngest goalscorer back in December 2002.

The former England international’s contract at Anfield runs out at the end of the season but, given he is still more than capable of performing at the top level, he must consider a move back to his hometown club in the summer.

His talent would see him improve virtually any team, his versatility would be ideal for a Marcelo Bielsa line-up, and his top-flight experience would be crucial for settling nerves within a side back in the Premier League after over a decade out.

James Milner’s weekly salary at Liverpool is £120,000 per week, and his wages may be out of Leeds’ reach, but if they get promoted to the Premier League the will have money available to add quality stars.
