Friends Of Liverpool

Is Raul Meirles being prepared to be sold by Liverpool FC to make way for Rafa Benitez’s downfall in Alberto Aquilani.

Signed by Roy Hodgson last season in a £10.5 million deal, the Portugese International had an exceptional second-half of the season under Kenny Dalglish, scoring five great goals in 31 appearances for the Reds.
His work-rate, passing and link ups in midfield were brilliant, he had an excellant delivery from corners and free-kicks and he was central to our charge up the table in the season just past.
However, strong rumours in the press suggest that Liverpool are willing to sell Liverpool’s Player of the Year to Juventus for £13 million.
I find this staggering, yes Liverpool have a clutter of midfielders right now, but surely selling one of our best players is strange to say the least.
The player himself is said to be deeply unhappy about the situation, having signed on a low temorary wage to see how he would adapt to the Premiership.
Well he has adapted admirably and ,in my view, he should be kept on at Anfield for the long-term.
Maybe, the problem is the return of Alberto Aquilani, the last signing/mistake of Rafa Benitez reign.
The Latino has been on loan at Juventus all season, but they don’t want to sign him, no other clubs are interested in taking him, thus far, so Alberto looks to be heading back to Anfield.
And maybe that has forced Liverpool’s hand a bit, they are trying to reduce the huge payroll and poor old Meireles looks to be the first casualty.
While they are at it , they should also look at selling Joe Cole, Milan Jovanovic, Christain Poulson as well.
Time to get rid of the squad players on £100,000 a week, and more.
