    Their contracts are ending summer 2020, why haven't their contracts been renewed? Is this Edwards being obtuse?
    Lallana, I could care less, if anything taking him off the wage bill would be a blessing

    Milner will be 34 next summer and it's perfectly conceivable that he wants to finish his career at Leeds utd and therefore hasn't had a contract offer because he doesn't want one

    Milner is moving to Leeds.
    Matip has another year left.
    Speaking to Bild am Sonntag, he said when asked about a return to the Bundesliga: ”In football nothing is impossible. At the moment I still have two years remaining in my contract here at Liverpool.

    Pearce said he expects new contracts for both of them to be sorted during the next months.

    It's a regular occurrence on SCM for someone to have a meltdown at the perceived inactivity of the club because a certain player hasn't yet been offered a new contract.

    This time last year it was Mane.

    I know it's an international break so folks feel the need to fill the void with angst, but refuckinglax

    Don't think Milner will be getting a new contract, by then it's best if he moved on anyway.

    Matip 100% deserves new contract and hope it gets sorted before Christmas

    I hope he does get another year. He is a calming influence in the team and still as fit as someone 5 years younger.
    I hope he is given coaching responsibility when he does decide to hang his boots.

    I'd rather we gave the game time to someone young and fresh like Naby and Ox.

    Wouldn't lose sleep over Milner leaving

    Just look at the way Milner saw that Mane needed calming after his ueber strop at Salah and jumped in with an arm round before any of the assistant coaches. He’s defo someone we want to keep around for a long time

    I love Milner, hes been a magnificent signing for us and integral to the squad unity Klopp has built. That said I have absolutely no issue with either party deciding that this will be his last season at Anfield.

    From the clubs perspective he will be 34 next summer and its very much a law of diminishing returns for a midfielder at that age, particularly one whose game is built on relentless stamina like Milner. Theres also the issue of older players staying too long that block the development of younger players that need game time.

    From his perspective hes won everything in the game and hes often expressed a desire to end his career back at Elland Rd, if the get promoted this season I think he will go back. It probably very much suits him to delay any contract talks until he knows what will happen with Leeds.

    If this is his last season Id love to see him back as a coach when he does finally hang up his boots in 2028.

    Gini, Matip and Milner all tipped for new deals.

    Mad to think he will have played most games for us by the end of season over all his other teams. Still seems like he only signed last season.

    Rodgers did well in his last window.

    Firmino, Milner, Gomez and Origi.

    Regarding Matip -

    James Pearce @JamesPearceLFC
    Also a bit of an update on Joel Matip’s situation. He signed a 4-year deal in 2016 but the club had the option to extend it by a further year which they have enacted. As a result he’s under contract until summer 2021. #LFC

    Yes... I not sure I’d be comfortable with Matip in someone else’s hands.
