Liverpool star set for Anfield exit

Liverpool Striker Dani PachecoLiverpool forward Dani Pacheco looks set to end his spell at the club after he revealed he would not be travelling on the Anfield club’s pre-season tour of Asia and Australia, according to talkSPORT.

The Spaniard tweeted: “Finally not travelling to Asia. Will talk about my future in the next couple of days. Thank you.”

The news looks as if it will end what has turned out to be a disappointing few years on Merseyside after he was signed by Rafa Benitez from Barcelona in 2007. There were high hopes for the man from Pizarra after a sequence of very impressive games for the club’s reserve side.

However, as happens much too often with some young players, he was sent out on loan time after time. Three times in four seasons to be precise which undoubtedly contributed to the stuttering nature of his career.

Brendan Rodgers did originally name Pacheco as one of 28 men due to travel to the pacific region and he did feature in Liverpool’s 4-0 win over Preston on Saturday. Yet it seems both parties know that it is unlikely Pacheco will be a Liverpool player come the start of the Premier League season.

Many sides in La Liga will feel like they can reinvigorate the talent that Pacheco possesses in abundance. A move back to his homeland is the most likely scenario but with many teams in Spain feeling the pinch of the country’s financial crisis, ironically the final year of Pacheco’s Liverpool contract may be out on loan once again.

Liverpool fans, are you sad to say goodbye to Pacheco?
