Mignolet hints at Reds exit

30 June 2018 06:18:01 EST

Liverpool goalkeeper Simon Mignolet has indicated that he will be leaving Anfield when World Cup 2018 ends in mid-July.

The 30-year-old was an unused substitute during Belgium's 1-0 win over England in Kaliningrad on Thursday when Chelsea shot-stopper Thibaut Courtois started the match.

Mignolet, who is contracted to Liverpool for another three years, lost his place to Loris Karius in the second half of the 2017/18 campaign.

He has not played since January but there are also doubts about Karius' Reds future after he made two glaring errors in their Champions League final defeat to Real Madrid five weeks ago.

Liverpool have been linked with Brazilian goalkeeper Alisson, Stoke City's Jack Butland and Burnley's Nick Pope this summer, with Mignolet saying: "I am going to look at my situation when I come back from the World Cup.

"I didn't play in the last few months at Liverpool, so after the World Cup I will look at everything. I can't say much more. I don't know how long I will have off after the tournament. I need to speak to the manager about that.

"(But) at this moment I have not been speaking to anyone at Liverpool because I have been trying to focus on Belgium."

Liverpool are 7/4 to win the 2018/19 Premier League title, while Manchester City can be backed at 8/11, Manchester United at 40/1 and Chelsea at 11/1.
