Liverpool star plays down speculation over Real Madrid links

Liverpool star Alberto Moreno has come out to play down speculation over a possible switch to Real Madrid, Express reports.

The 23-year-old was linked with a move to the La Liga giants following remarks made by his agent Javier Moya when he revealed that there was interest in his client.

Real are considering a move to reinforce their left-back position following the injury to star man Marcelo, as they were said to be plotting a January move for his services.

However, Moreno has now come out to rule out any sort of Anfield exit after he looks to have earned himself a regular role under manager Jurgen Klopp.

The Spain international was close to an exit at the start of the campaign as former boss Brendan Rodgers preferred to use summer signing Joe Gomez in his back line.

Gomez has been ruled out for the entire campaign after damaging his knee ligaments, with Moreno now impressing since being given another opportunity to prove his worth.
