Fabinho: "I never thought of going elsewhere."

Fabinho says he is happy with his decision to join Liverpool and revealed Paris Saint-Germain were one of the sides interested in his services.

The Brazilian, who sealed a move from Ligue 1 side Monaco in a £44m deal last summer, has established himself as a key member of Jurgen Klopp's squad and brushed off reports linking him with a move away from Anfield.

"I never thought of going elsewhere," Fabinho, who has played in Liverpool's last nine matches in all competitions, told L'Equipe.

"I know a lot of things were written in the newspapers, but it wasn't true. What's funny is that this PSG loan story came out just before our Champions League match [on November 28].

"I had already experienced a similar story the day before the Coupe de la Ligue final between PSG and Monaco [in March 2018]. It's a strange coincidence, isn't it?"

"If I had to sign at PSG, it's the year before it could have been done," Fabinho added.

"They were very interested, I talked a lot with Antero Henrique [PSG's sporting director] and the club's leaders, but it didn't work. The year after, I did not wait for them and then I thought it was time to leave France."
