Athletic Bilbao attacking midfielder Iker Muniain has sent a damning message to his England suitors, Liverpool with a major step of committing his future to the Spanish side.
The move by the player is the loudest way of telling the Merseyside suitors of his rejection of their bid and interest for him knowing that his contract with his club expires at the end of next season.
The Reds had expected that the 25-year old could be secured at a very cheap price in the winter with the insinuation that his club will be in a rush to have him sold but that will no longer be as the player wants to remain.
Muniain is a goal scoring attacker who already has four goals to his name in nine appearances for his side, making him an important player who is highly needed.
A report by Spanish newspaper Marca stated that the decision to remain at the club is that of the midfielder and not the club but hinted that the player’s request to remain at San Mames would be well granted by the club.
However, Liverpool will face competition from Napoli who are reported to be monitoring the player from a distance as well.
