Liverpool Flop Set for Real Madrid Move As Perez Seeks Ronaldo’s Replacement

Iago Aspas left Anfield Stadium in 2014 after unsuccessful spell during Brendan Rodgers reign at the club.

The Spanish striker was let go by the Reds for just £4.4m as they were desperate to cash-in on his signature due to his unimpressive performances.

Since the player moved to Spanish side Celta Vigo in 2014, he has returned back to blistering form.

His performances for the Spanish side hasn’t gone unnoticed by many clubs as reports claimed that Real Madrid manager Julen Lopetegui has made move for his signature.

According to Diario Gol, the former Spain national team coach has developed an interest in his compatriot, whom he believes is the best player to replace Cristiano Ronaldo who joined Juventus this month.

The Spanish media further revealed that the Los Blancos president Florentino Perez has reached a £35m agreement with Celta Vigo for Aspas’ signature and the deal could be completed as soon as Friday.

Selling the diminutive striker for such a low price appeared to be Liverpool’s greatest undoing as they failed to give him much chance to prove his worth.

Though the Reds are not regretting their decision to sanction his move to Celta Vigo, they could have made the Spanish club pay a bit higher, considering Aspas quality.

He has featured in just 50 matches and he’s yet to touch the ball this season, though, that is expected to change whenever he is back from his longterm injury.

However, he must contend with Victor Lindelof and Harry Maguire for a spot a the back of the pitch when he returns to full fitness.

Arsenal were linked with the Ivorian’s services last summer but the Gunners should be ready to miss out on his signature, should United successfully convince the 25-year-old into signing the new deal.

Manchester United are missing the services of some key players due to injury, and one of them is Axel Tuanzebe.

The youngster has become a force to reckon in Solskjaer’s first-team but his development was brought to a halt by injury.

The young defender picked up a knock while warming up ahead of their stalemate with Liverpool last month and he hasn’t returned since then.

However, the good news is that the 22-year-old versatile defender is set to return to full fitness following his post via his Instagram page.

According to the player, ‘it is time to get back to the pitch’ which means he could return to action before the end of this or early December at most.

Tuanzebe did wonderfully well in the matches he has played for the Red Devils so far this season and he will hope to continue from where he stopped when he is finally fit enough to return to the pitch.

His versatility makes him eligible to feature as a right-back, left-back and a center-back depending on Solskjaer’s tactical approach to games.

Meanwhile, other injured players include Eric Bailly— who is expected to return to action in January, Luke Shaw and Paul Pogba who is expected to be fully fit in December.
