A good news story for Anfield fans on this sad day!
Real Madrid striker Alvaro Negredo says he’s prepared to move abroad for regular football.
A target for Tottenham and Liverpool, Negredo said: “Of course I would like to stay, but I have to do what’s best for me and if it can not be here, I must find minutes elsewhere.
“I cannot rule out playing in another league.” (tribalfootball.com)
Now this is more like it. Rafa needn’t break the bank to find a back up for Torres or indeed a player to line up alongside El Nino and making a move for Real Madrid bench man Negredo makes a great deal of sense to me.
Given the the fact we are soon to be down two Spaniards it’s good to bring some in so that the other Spanish internationals don’t get to homesick. Also the 23 year old knows only to well that he has no chance of forcing his way into the La Liga sides starting eleven, hell he will struggle to even get on the bench. Have you seen who is ahead of him in the striking queue? Its incredible! The following players will almost certainly get a place ahead of the former Almeria part owned player; Raul, Gonzalo Higuain, Karim Benzema, Ruud Van Nistelrooy and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar.
He was only bought back by the Bernabeu so that he could be used as a bargaining chip in their Galactico deals but still finds himself at the club. Rafa would do well to make a move for the well built striker as Negredo will want to force himself into the international set up with the World Cup looming and is unlikely to attract Del Bosque from the bench.
