"The club wishes the player the best fortunes for the future".

Buffon's deal was worth £32.6m at the time, while Ederson's was worth £35m because of changing exchange rates, but as most deals between clubs in Europe, including the Premier League, are completed in euros Buffon's deal is recognised as the record.

Roma confirmed the value of the transfer for Alisson who featured at the World Cup in Russian Federation.

"In terms of my life and my career, it's a huge step for me being part of this club and this family", said Allison.

'Yesterday, he sent me a message saying: "Hey, what are you waiting for?"

Liverpool signing Alisson Becker admits playing at Anfield last season helped make up his mind about a move. "When the play starts from the back and the ball arrives in a good way for the attackers to shoot, it's always better", the goalie added.

In the Serie A last season, Alisson put up some terrific numbers finishing first in save percentage (79.3) and second in clean sheets (17) among regularly starting goalkeepers. "We met again in the game when we were up against each other [in the Champions League in April]", Alisson told Liverpool official website.

Beyond those comforting figures know this; Alisson is sensational. His own style and abilities have much more in common with the Germany star than with his compatriot, Alisson a thoroughly modern player who exudes an infectious self-belief that inspires both faith and trust in his team-mates.
