Henderson suffers blow to thigh in Porto clash

  Henderson suffers blow to thigh in Porto clash Liverpool midfielder Jordan Henderson appeared to pick up a knock to his thigh near the end of the 0-0 draw against FC Porto this evening. The England international went up for a header in the closing stages of the Champions League clash and landed awkwardly. Henderson was seen limping rather awkwardly as the game drew to a close, and was subsequently shown to be strapping his thigh up following the full-time whistle. Henderson played out the full match against Porto, as Liverpool booked their place in the quarter finals of the Champions League. Although the Reds did not come out as victors on the night, their rampant 5-0 win in Portugal in the first leg of the tie was enough to make it a comfortable evening for Jurgen Klopp’s men. However, the knock to Henderson could come as a concern, with Liverpool gearing up for their crunch clash at Manchester United on Saturday afternoon at Old Trafford. The injury could, of course, be as minor as a dead leg. Although, it is sure to be something that is monitored by Liverpool and their medical staff, with the Manchester United clash bearing such importance on their pursuit of 2nd place in the Premier League.

Donnarumma is one of the world’s most coveted goalkeepers and he has been linked with moves to a number of top clubs around Europe. He evidently has an emotional attachment to Milan, though, and is in line to stay for some more years yet.

The Daily Mail claims that the Spaniard will join the Rossoneri on a free transfer with Gianluigi Donnarumma likely to leave in the summer. Donnarumma, who has been linked with Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid, now looks free to leave in the summer window. Reina has been linked with several moves away from Naples this season as he reaches the latter stages of his career. Newcastle were heavily linked with the player throughout both the summer and January transfer window. The goalkeeping position was an area that Rafa Benitez was desperate to improve, but could not strike a deal with the player who he managed at Liverpool. Martin Dúbravka joined during the January window and became an instant hit with the Newcastle faithful with a Man of the Match performance against Manchester United.

Steve Nicol claims Donnarumma would be good for Liverpool .
Liverpool legend Steve Nicol has said that AC Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma would be a good signing for the club. Nicol claims that Donnarumma would be a good signing for the next decade, with the shot-stopper still in his teens. The Italian international only recently turned 19 and has already played 114 games for Milan at senior level. He has also been capped five times by Italy as he prepares to replace Gianluigi Buffon as his country’s number one. As quoted by Goal, Nicol said this: “I would have no problem with him [Roma keeper Alisson], I would have no problem if they can get the likes of Donnarumma who would be a goalkeeper for the next decade.” Donnarumma looks set to hit 100 Serie A matches before the end of the season, so he has the experience to come in and start at Liverpool. Simon Mignolet and Loris Karius have both failed to nail down a starting position with authority over the past two seasons, with a new goalkeeper expected to come in this summer.
