And as the month of July rolls around, many contracts around the footballing world have now officially expired.
Alberto Moreno is among those superstars who are now, at least for the time being, without a club. The 26-year-old left-back has been a part of the Reds’ family since August 2014, when he joined from Sevilla.
Last season, he played only two league games for Liverpool and was mostly sidelined or benched. His departure was very much on the cards throughout the 2018/19 campaign and this comes as no surprise, with the flying left-back now expected to pen a contract with Villarreal.

Of course, this attracted a lot of attention as his teammates and rivals alike swarmed the comment section, sending their best regards to the now ex-Liverpool man.
Virgil van Dijk responded on Twitter since the Spaniard posted the message on various social media accounts.
Good luck & take care hermano

Steven Gerrard also posted a short but sincere message, wishing Moreno all the best in the future. They, of course, were not nearly the only ones as a sea of other players and teammates also rushed to Instagram to do the same.
