This source claims an Anfield Flop could well be on his way to the La Liga giants!
Real Madrid are trying again for Liverpool winger Jermaine Pennant.
Pennant had priced himself out of a move to Madrid on Thursday, but Sky Sports News says Real have made a new push for the winger.
Pennant has made just four appearances for Liverpool this season and it appears he does not figure in Rafa Benitez’s long-term plans.
The former Birmingham and Arsenal ace is out of contract in the summer and he could agree a pre-contract with any interested continental sides next month.
Real are now hoping to do a deal with Liverpool to bring Pennant to El Santiago Bernabeu when the transfer window reopens.
Liverpool could be willing to cash-in on Pennant next month rather than risk losing the 25-year-old for nothing at the end of the season. (tribalfootball.com)
If Juande Ramos does indeed intend to take Jermaine to the La Liga champions I would be shocked. This source suggests that the only stumbling block was wage demands but could the former Arsenal man really be on the Real managers shopping list? Pennant has the ability to play at a very high level but he has proven at Anfield that he is woefully inconsistent and prone to outside influences that affect his chances of being selected in the first place. Rafa would obviously be very keen to get some money for the wideman before his contract runs out but apparently the player wasn’t too keen on moves to Blackburn and Stoke but he would obviously jump at the chance of a move to Madrid, but could it really become a reality? Do Liverpool fans think that this deal could really happen?
