The agreement is not binding, so if the Reds were to move to sign the Brazilian in the current transfer window then they would still have a chance of signing him. The player’s signature has taken extra importance since Manchester United signed Victor Valdes, taking a possible goalie away from their reaches.
The 25-year-old might prefer a move to Anfield due to the easier route to the starting XI that he would have there. Simon Mignolet and Brad Jones have not impressed during this campaign, while at Juventus he would have to attempt to displace club legend Gianluigi Buffon. In all likelihood he would be signed as a back up for the Old Lady.
If Reds manager Brendan Rodgers wants to look elsewhere due to the competition from the Serie A giants, than Sergio Romero is another stopper whose deal ends in the summer and would be available for a reduced fee.
