Liverpool Target Wants To Leave Barcelona In January, But Reds Face Strong Competition

Liverpool made a bid for Montoya in the summer, but Barca convinced him to sign a new deal.

Liverpool target Martin Montoya is reportedly keen to leave FC Barcelona as soon as possible.

The full-back, who is unhappy at the lack of playing time he is getting under new boss Luis Enrique, is out of patience and is now actively pushing for a move, reports Spanish paper Sport.

The Reds have been linked with the Spaniard, and according to Sport actually made a bid for his services in the summer.

Barcelona convinced the defender to stay, and promised him minutes. Montoya took their promises at face value, and renewed his contract until 2018.

But since then he has barely played, and the club has since signed Douglas, another right-back.

The Merseysiders will not have an easy time securing Montoya’s services however, with offers for the player already having been made by Bayer Leverkusen, AC Milan and Inter Milan.

The talented defender can console himself with the fact that he inserted €20m release clause into his new deal, meaning that any club who is willing to stump up the cash can get him.

In the meantime, the youngster must make the most of his playing time to convince his suitors he’s worth the money, or he could face another season watching his team from the bench.
