Alisson joins Liverpool as world's most expensive goalie

Brazil goalkeeper Alisson became the world's most expensive goalkeeper on Thursday when he joined Liverpool from Roma.

Roma said the deal for Brazil's starting goalkeeper at the World Cup in Russia "could be worth up to 72.5 million euros" ($84.5 million).

"In terms of my life and my career, it's a huge step for me being part of this club and this family," the 25-year-old Alisson said.
