Liverpool goalkeeper Adrian San Miguel has been discussing his future ahead of the imminent end of the season.

The Spaniard joined Liverpool after six years in the Premier League with West Ham United, where he made 150 appearances before beginning a new chapter on Merseyside.

Adrian, who originally moved to England from Real Betis, came in to provide cover and competition for Alisson Becker following Simon Mignolet’s departure.

He took the vacant No. 13 shirt, previously worn by Alisson.

The Spaniard has somewhat divided opinions during his stay at Liverpool.

While has been criticized for poor performances on occasion, he is also an invaluable squad member who brought a wealth of experience to a Liverpool side who needed it at the time.

He signed a contract extension in the summer of 2021 and once again delivered when needed, playing in Liverpool’s FA Community Shield victory over Manchester City the following year.

Ahead of the 2023-24 season, Adrian agreed to a one-year extension, meaning he could stay on for this season.

But with Jurgen Klopp departing and Caoimhin Kelleher’s continued growth, it is almost certain that the 37-year-old will depart this summer.

He finishes his Liverpool career having made 26 appearances and won the Premier League, FA Cup, League Cup (X2), as well as plenty more.

What did Adrian say about his journey after Liverpool?

Adrian initially left Real Betis for West Ham in 2013, and spent six years there before his Liverpool move.

Now, the Spaniard is aiming for a return to his native country and once again feature in La Liga:

“I would like to return to LaLiga after 11 seasons in the Premier League. It would be the end of a cycle. I’m still ready to compete. I feel very good despite being 37,” Adrian said to Mucho Deporte.

“You know that goalkeepers, if you take good care of yourself, if you haven’t had any serious injuries lately and you’re fine, the daily training gives you that intensity that makes you compete.”

“It’s true that I would like to return to the LaLiga. It has to be a nice, interesting project.”

The shot stopper also revealed that he had not yet sat down for talks with Liverpool – but if one goes by Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s experiences – the Anfield hierarchy seem to let the players work it out for themselves:

“I haven’t sat down with Liverpool yet either. I don’t rule out that we could have a pending conversation, but it is true that we will be looking out of the corner of our eye to see what happens in the LaLiga,” Adrián explained.
