Arbeloa unsure over Atletico link

Published Add your comment

Liverpool defender Alvaro Arbeloa insists he is in the dark over supposed interest from Atletico Madrid.

Atletico are reportedly monitoring the former Real Madrid and Deportivo La Coruna full-back with a view to bringing the Spain international back to his homeland.

However, when asked if he knew anything about that speculation, the 25-year-old Arbeloa said: "No. I have a contract with Liverpool for one more year. We've not spoken about renewing it, not knowing if (Liverpool manager Rafa) Benitez will continue...It seems to me a little soon to talk about this."

Arbeloa, who moved to Anfield in January 2007, may be a little unsure about his own long-term future at Liverpool, but he has no doubts about that of captain Steven Gerrard.

"A while ago there was some talk of Madrid wanting Gerrard; they can forget that, he will never move from here in his life," Arbeloa added in AS.

"He and (Jamie) Carragher are the ones here who the fans love a huge amount, and they love the club a huge amount.

"Now the dream of everyone is to win the league, as it is 18 years since Liverpool last achieved it and it hurts, but it will not be easy."
