Liverpool goalkeeper Adrian is set to close the book on his time at Anfield, revealing his plans to return to La Liga.

After five years on Merseyside, Adrian is nearing the end of his Reds contract. A renewal looks increasingly unlikely, with the third-choice goalkeeper last making an appearance in the top flight back in February 2021.

In an interview with Mucho Deporte, Adrian opened up on his future plans. He said: "I would like to return to La Liga after 11 seasons in the Premier League. It would be the end of a cycle. I'm still ready to compete. I feel very good despite being 37.

"You know that goalkeepers, if you take good care of yourself, if you haven't had any serious injuries lately and you're fine, the daily training gives you that intensity that makes you compete.

"I think I have a long time left and it's true that I would like to return to La Liga. It has to be a nice, interesting project. I haven't sat down with Liverpool yet either. I don't rule out that we could have a pending conversation, but it is true that we will be looking out of the corner of our eye to see what happens in La Liga."

Having first moved to the Premier League in 2013 to play for West Ham United, Adrian signed for Liverpool in 2019, winning the league, the FA Cup, the UEFA Super Cup and a Club World Cup during his time at Anfield.

Adrian's last game under contract at Liverpool is expected to come on Sunday when they host Wolverhampton Wanderers on the final day of the Premier League season - Jurgen Klopp's last match in charge of the Reds.
