Luis Alberto flop set for Malaga loan

Published Add your comment

Liverpool have confirmed that flop signing, Luis Alberto, has joined Malaga on a season-long loan. Malaga are reportedly set to pay Liverpool a £1million loan fee to secure the player.

Alberto joined Liverpool in a £6.8million deal last summer, after spending a year on loan with Barcelona B. Despite an impressive return of 11 goals and 18 assists, Barcelona did not move to make the deal permanent and Liverpool took the opportunity. Liverpool's official website confirmed the move on Thursday.

Money wasted?

But it did not prove to be money well spent. Alberto was unable to show what he is capable of at Liverpool, and made just nine Premier League appearances for the club, failing to score any goals and providing just one assist for the first-team.

Kop boss, Brendan Rodgers, is unhappy with the left winger’s contribution and does not see him playing a part in the first-team any time soon, but is unwilling to let him leave the club for less than what they paid for the player.

More signings coming in

Alberto is likely to fall further down the pecking order at Anfield, as Rodgers is looking to strengthen his team ahead of an assault on the Champions League, with big names such as Barcelona’s Alexis Sanchez and Bayern Munich’s Xherdan Shaqiri being linked with the club.
