Liverpool Midfielder Fabinho Joins Saudi Side Al-Ittihad

Brazil midfielder Fabinho has completed a move to Saudi Arabia's Al-Ittihad Club from Liverpool on a three-year deal.

Financial details have not been disclosed but British media reported that Al-Ittihad paid £40 million ($51.33 million) for Fabinho.

The 29-year-old was also left out of the Liverpool's current trip to Singapore as the move was finalized.

Al-Ittihad posted a video with the title "Tigers are permitted to pass" in reference to media reports suggesting the deal might be delayed. 

Fabinho is Al-Ittihad's latest high-profile signing this summer as part of a widespread influx of players into the Saudi Pro League, after Karim Benzema, N'Golo Kante and Jota have all joined the club.

Al-Ittihad said Fabinho's signing is part of their effort to "reinforce the team with outstanding players, who will support their journey in the upcoming phase, which includes multiple domestic and international competitions".
