JAMES MILNER could make his Liverpool debut against a Thailand all-star team next month.
The Reds this morning announced they would be travelling to Thailand for their pre-season tour.
First up is a clash with the True Thai Premier League All Stars at the 50-000 seater Rajamangala Stadium.
And that could be the first time Liverpool fans see Milner in action.
Starsport understands the Reds are willing to pay him £150,000-a-week to sign.
Liverpool can afford to pay the bumper wages as Milner is available on a free, although he will command a big signing-on fee.
Former Kop defender Jamie Carragher believes Milner could even be made captain.
Carragher said: "The fact that Rodgers wouldn't confirm Jordan Henderson as this season's captain - even though he was captain in Steven Gerrard's absence last season - makes me think him and Milner could be competing for the armband."
