While City are clearly sad to see Milner go, it’s news that’s only likely to brighten the mood of us Liverpool fans. The England international is steadily looking a more and more impressive coup, with the 29-year-old deciding on a move to Anfield despite a huge contract offer being on the table at the Etihad Stadium (via the Daily Mail).
Milner, who is expected to wear the famous Liverpool number seven shirt during his time at Anfield, will now have his sights set on matching his success in Manchester on Merseyside. The former City man won two Premier League titles and two domestic cups during his time with the club and was viewed as an integral part of their squad.
Sorry Vincent, he’s ours now!
