That didn’t take long…
No sooner had Marca claimed Cristian Tello was on his way to Liverpool, Brendan Rodgers appears to have poured cold water on any move and the Catalan press seem to agree that the winger will be staying at the Nou Camp for the rest of the season.
The Liverpool boss was pressed on Tello at a press conference at Melwood today but played a straight bat and refused to talk names despite his obvious amusement about being asked about players even before the January transfer window has opened.
Reliable Catalan paper, El Mundo Deportivo, at least for Barcelona news, add that the La Liga leaders don’t want to loan out Tello despite interest from Liverpool and Valencia.
Tello is unlikely to push through a move as well and is reportedly willing to remain and fight for his place in the star studded Barcelona squad.
