Luis Alberto: Started just twice during first season at Anfield

The 21-year-old will spend the whole fo the forthcoming season back in Spain after starting just twice in his first year at Anfield.

Liverpool paid a reported £6.8m for Alberto when he was bought from Sevilla last summer, but he was last seen in action in Janaury.

A club statement read: "Liverpool today confirmed that midfielder Luis Alberto has completed a season-long loan switch to Spanish outfit Malaga.

"The 21-year-old, who arrived at Anfield from Sevilla last summer, will spend the entirety of 2014-15 with the side that finished 11th last season."

Liverpool's hopes of signing another Sevilla player, left-back Alberto Moreno, are slim according to quotes attributed to the club's sporting director.

Spanish newspaper El Correo de Andalucia quoted Monchi as saying: "The matter of Alberto is practically settled. We couldn't reach an agreement and I don't think it can be revived.

"I don't think we'll make a lot of moves but if on August 14 a club comes along and they give you a mountain of cash, well....I know you don't like to hear it, but we are economic managers.

"My feeling is that the negotiations are paralysed and I don't see any hint that they will be restarted. We put a price on our players which we believe to be appropriate. Whoever wants to buy, can buy, and if you can't...."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
