New Liverpool signing Alexis Mac Allister has become the talk of the football world after signing at Anfield to complete a £35 million deal

The Merseyside club confirmed the news on Thursday morning, although the news had gone viral over the past week with Liverpool fans excited to welcome the Argentine to the side after an disappointing previous campaign. Mac Allister is not new to making headlines on and off the pitch with an extraordinary rise over the past 12 months.

When he was part of the Argentina World Cup-winning squad in Qatar last winter, the midfielder turned heads with his celebrations online. His 24-year-old’s girlfriend at the time Camila Mayan posted on Instagram to celebrate the momentous occasion in her boyfriend’s career. Posting a picture of the couple on the pitch, she wrote an adorable Spanish caption which translated as: “I love you Champion! No words, we did it. Let’s go Argentina!”

An excited Mac Allister dropped by the comments to thank his partner, writing: “Te amooooo!! Vamos carajooooooo.”

For his many non-Spanish speaking followers, Instagram translated the sweet comment as “I love you, let’s f**k” which led to the message generating nearly 60,000 likes and making headlines all over the world – although in Spanish ‘carajo’ is used more as a single expletive than a rude synonym of the verb to fornicate.

However, according to Argentine journalist Marcela Taura, just six days after the World Cup win and loved-up interaction, Mac Allister split with Mayan. Now, the Liverpool man is reported to be dating Ailen Cova, who is a close friend of Mayan.

The two have kept their relationship private thus far but were spotted together at the wedding of Inter Milan star Lautaro Martinez in late May. Mac Allister and Cova were captured in the background of a live video shot by former Man City man Nicolás Otamendi.

Ex-girlfriend Mayan did speak out about her heartbreak over seeing her ex and best friend together when speaking to the Argentinian television show Intrusos.

She said: “It was a betrayal. Everything that happened, I could never have imagined even in my worst nightmare. I would never have imagined so many negative things about such a close person.”

Mayan still has photos with Mac Allister up on her social media accounts and the two regularly posted loved-up snaps enjoying life on the South Coast as the midfielder played for Brighton.

From Brighton Pier to the seafront and at home, the couple had appeared to be head over heels for one another. Mac Allister’s new girlfriend Ailen Cova hasn’t shared any public messages following the news of the star’s arrival at Anfield but does already follow the official Liverpool account on Instagram.
