Alberto Moreno wants Real Madrid switch

Published 1 Comments

Chelsea and Liverpool look set to be disappointed in their pursuit of Alberto Moreno, with reports suggesting that the Sevilla defender has a verbal agreement with Real Madrid and views a potential move to the Spanish capital as his first-choice.

This information comes from unnamed sources cited by Spanish newspaper Marca, who also claim that the full-back - who helped Sevilla to triumph in the final of the Europa League against Benfica on Thursday evening - is aware that current Real left-back Fabio Coentrao could be set to depart the Santiago Bernabeu in the near future.

If such claims turn out to be accurate, then both Jose Mourinho and Brendan Rodgers are sure to be frustrated, given that both Chelsea and Liverpool have been linked with the £15 million-rated defender in recent days.

A naturally-gifted full-back, Moreno - who has already won two senior caps for his native Spain - has really progressed at the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán in recent months and it certainly should come as no surprise to regular La Liga followers to learn that the 21-year-old is attracting serious attention from some of European football's most-reputable clubs.

Liverpool and Chelsea both would certainly be boosted by the acquisition of such a top-quality left-back, with Jose Enrique having been blighted with injury struggles at Anfield this season and Ashley Cole looking likely to depart Stamford Bridge when his contract expires this summer.

However, their hopes of landing Moreno appear to be dwindling fast with the player seemingly keen to stay in Spain.
