This summer’s transfer window may have been a profitable one for Liverpool, but Brendan Rodgers is already turning his attentions to next year’s market.
That’s according to reports that suggest the Reds continue to send scouts to watch Real Betis midfielder Dani Ceballos, ahead of a possible bid for his services in the future.
The youngster has less than a year remaining on his contract and a buy-out clause of £7.5million, with Liverpool having the option to attempt to purchase him for a cut-price fee in January.
It’s said they will face competition from Arsenal, with Ceballos looking likely to sign a pre-contract agreement for an English move next year.
Balotelli's Real joke
Meanwhile Mario Balotelli has admitted that Real Madrid are a ‘dream club’, refuting reports that he made a joke about them in the past.
The Italian took to Twitter to slam those who said he had aimed a dig at Real via a statement about Barcelona, claiming he would never make fun of Los Blancos.
Rooney on Sterling
Bringing up the rear Wayne Rooney has had his say on Raheem Sterling’s controversial Anfield departure, and he has backed it.
The Manchester United forward said that he thought Sterling seemed ‘settled’ at Man City and had started the season excellenty. That can only mean good things for the Three Lions.
