Liverpool clear favourites to land Cristian Tello this summer
With every passing day it is becoming clearer that Barcelona and Real Madrid are going to dominate this summer’s transfer window. Having already captured Neymar, Barcelona are targeting Liverpool goal keeper Pepe Reina for departing Victor Valdes.
Reina himself has admitted that he would consider a move if a concrete offer comes from the Spanish champions. It has been reported in the media that the Catalan giants are desperate to land the Spaniard and are ready to offer £10 for him.
Manager Brendan Rodgers has time and again stated that he doesn’t want to lose a top goal keeper like Reina, but he might consider the offer, if Barcelona add highly talented Cristian Tello in the mix.
The 21-year-old has a release clause of £8.5m in his contract, and has failed to make his way to the first team on a regular basis. He has just made 11 starts in La Liga this season and a lot depends on how he views about his future.
Atletico Madrid and Arsenal are also interested for his signature but as it stands, Liverpool are form favourites to land the prodigy. Barca are desperate to land Reina but will they consider involving Tello in the deal?
Rodgers, who is buoyed by the exciting young signings Philippe Coutinho and Daniel Sturridge in January is looking to spend further on young talents and to him Tello fits the bill perfectly at Anfield.
