Moreno denies that Liverpool deal is in place

The Spain international is excited by the prospect of facing Real Madrid in the European Super Cup, with the Reds having been told to pay €22 million for his services

Sevilla full-back Alberto Moreno denies that a deal is in place for him to join Liverpool from Sevilla and says that he is still “dedicated” to the club.

The Reds have already had one bid rejected for the Spain international and Goal understands that Brendan Rodgers’s side have been told to pay €22 million [£17.8m] for the 21-year-old by the Europa League winners.

Moreno told a press conference that his future is far from clear and that he is happy to stay with Unai Emery’s side.

“All I know is that I’ve been a Sevillista since I was a kid. My future? I do not know about that,” he told reporters.

“That’s a matter for my father and my agent to deal with. I have four years [left on my contract], I am dedicated to playing [here] and I’m happy.”

The Spaniards’ Europa League final win over Benfica in Turin means that they will take part in the European Super Cup against Champions League victors Real Madrid in August.

Moreno is looking forward to the match in Cardiff and is hopeful that Ivan Rakitic, who is on the verge of a €20m [£16m] move to Barcelona, could yet be alongside him in the line-up.

“Hopefully I can play in that match and win such a big title, particularly against Real Madrid, and hopefully Rakitic will be there with us, who’s a great person and team-mate,” he enthused.

“As soon as we return to training on July 7 we will start preparing for the match.”
