Report: Moreno on Barca's radar

While the transfer window is closed at this present moment, the rumour mill keeps going at full speed and offers its fair share of what can only be described as interesting talking points.

 

A report in the Mirror (via Mundo Deportivo in Spanish ) has emerged claiming that Barcelona have registered an interest in Alberto Moreno as they look for competition for their incumbent in Jordi Alba.

 

For the large majority of Liverpool fans, Moreno has been an unloved figure since arriving on Merseyside at the start of the 2014/5 season.

 

After being a regular member of the starting line-up for his first two seasons, Moreno suffered what can only be described as a humiliating blow to his career prospects at the club.

 

The Spaniard was replaced in the role by midfielder James Milner after a number of subpar performances at the start of the 2016/7 campaign.

 

It certainly like the writing was on the wall in terms of the 26 year- old’s Liverpool career.

 

However to the surprise of many, Moreno reclaimed his starting spot for the beginning of the 2017/8 campaign.

Perhaps it was presence of proper competition in the shape of fellow left-back Andy Robertson who had arrived from Hull in the summer, but the much-maligned Moreno raised his level even earning himself a recall to his national side.

 

With things finally looking like it was heading on an upward trajectory, Moreno suffered an ankle injury against Spartak Moscow in the Champions League which gave Robertson a opportunity which he has taken with both hands and is certainly not giving it back.

 

It has left Moreno in a familiar place on the outside looking in, only making one appearance in the Carabao Cup against Chelsea, and his Liverpool career  is certainly at the crossroads yet again.

 

Eyebrows are bound to be raised over this link, but as we have seen a fair bit over time, footballers who have failed in one league, can suddenly improve when they are in a new environment which they feel comfortable in.

 

Having the likes of Liverpool and Barcelona on your football resume is a pretty impressive double to have.

 

We will watch on with a deal of interest to see whether this rumour progresses any further.

I played left back in the Liverpool Old Boys League for 3 years in the early-80's and , despite being 58 , am still a better player than the chimp-tattooed imbecile & would actually pay subs for the privilege.

I can see why he'd be an attractive back-up option for Barca, but he's never displacing Alba. He'd likely be happier as a back-up there than here and he's never going to be in the first eleven under Klopp, so I can see the sense in selling him. 

 

However, what cover would that leave us with? Robbo could, and should, cement that left back spot for the next 7/8 years so who, realistically, is going to come in knowing that? Clyne can play there and Gomez can cover right back, so we're not completely without options. I think it was Paul that said in the summer that we need more options at full back because the demand on the players is so high and the position so important. Trent and Robbo aren't going to play 50+ games a season so I'd be happy with Moreno, Clyne and Gomez filling in occasionally. Of course there's some drop off in quality there but thats inevitable.

 

In short, I'd keep Bert. Which I can't quite believe I've said.

At least it's a bit more realistic than their supposed interest in Mignolet. 

 

Coutinho was good mates with him, they play football with less focus on defence, and he's still a decent athlete, albeit one whose braincell gets lonely. Not necessarily as far fetched as it might first seem.

He looks a bit like Saul Alvarez.

Bit of Chip pissing here but is this just a case of Alba contract shenanigans? Some of the shit twitter accounts claiming he's "going to the mancs" ,Morono is just being used as part of the circus

To be fair, has he ever been in position? 

I did once see him resembling a tea pot while watching the opposing winger run past him but to be fair, it was quite a silly looking tea pot..

It’s a wonder his tattoos end up where he wants them.
