The Rumour

Football - Liverpool Press Conference

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez is ready to sell winger Albert Riera.

The News of the World says Benitez is prepared to sacrifice midfielder Riera, 27, to raise funds.

The former Manchester City winger has played his way into Spain’s World Cup plans this year.

The Analysis

Did Albert Riera have a good first season at Anfield, well that’s a toughie, it started brightly and ended well but sort of dipped in the middle of the season and left Rafa wondering if the Spaniard was the best bet as first choice left winger at the club, so reports tell us anyway.

Ryan Babel doesn’t inspire confidence in this position either so if Rafa was to sell the former Man City man then clearly it would only be in order to replace him with players like David Silva, clearly the dream signing that Benitez would love to snap up, hence such talk of departures.

The Likelihood

Riera to leave Liverpool: Whilst not indispensable Albert is unlikely to leave so soon after arriving.
