Esteban Granero’s agent dropping Liverpool hints

Ah, agents - you have to love their enthusiasm for talking to the press don’t you?

Here are some quotes from Teo Lazaro, Esteban Granero’s representative:

“He’s finding his chances limited at Real.

If he can’t play at Madrid, then he’ll play somewhere else. It’s as simple as that.

He’s keen for a move away - possibly to Liverpool.”

Be wary of this Liverpool fans, because this is an example of how an agent drums up interest in a player. Mention that your man has a grievance with his club’s selection policy, make sure it’s clear that he’d welcome a move, and then drop a well-known and sizeable club into the equation. All of a sudden, your mobile might start ringing.

I don’t think anyone doubts that Granero is available, he’s tactically the odd-man-out in Real Madrid’s talented midfield - and he’s only made 39 appearances in 3 years.

Could Liverpool be interested? Who knows, Granero would offer them something they lack at the moment - i.e. someone adept at anchoring the midfield in Lucas Leiva’s absence - but I’d be surprised if Kenny Dalglish was chasing another midfielder, given the expenditure that’s already gone into that area.
