Liverpool handed boost in race for Barca starlet

Published Add your comment

Barcelona starlet Cristian Tello has dropped hints that he could possibly leave the club at the end of the season, admitting he will assess his future options.

TalkSPORT reports that the 22-year-old is said to be weighing up the possibility of moving away from the Spanish champions, as his Barca career has stalled since breaking into the first-team three years ago.

The news will be welcomed by clubs who are interested in signing the highly-rated forward, including Liverpool, who have been particularly firmly linked with the Spaniard.

Tello is used to playing on either attacking flank in a 4-4-3 formation, one that is generally used by Brendan Rodgers.

At the moment the youngster is competing with the likes of Lionel Messi, Alexis Sanchez, Neymar and Andres Iniesta for a first-team spot, and so is rightly sceptical of his long-term future at the Catalan club.

Tello, whilst speaking to Spanish newspaper Sport, highlighted that although he is happy for now, he would be ready to re-asses his situation come next summer.

"Right now I am very happy, but next year we'll see," the Barca academy graduate said.

"Every year I've felt more integrated into the team, more mature, but then every year you want to play as much and when the season ends we'll see what suits me best.

"[I want to be] playing as much as possible but I know who I have in front of me. But hey I'm ready to play it all if needed.

"I know that I can perform at the top, but that's the coach's decision. He has to choose between all of his options."
