According to latest reports, Premier League club Liverpool are eying Argentine international defender Gabriel Heinze.
Heinze is currently at Spanish champions Real Madrid and although he is playing more or less regularly, he is not at all rated by the Bernabeu faithful. The versatile Argentine international defender was signed by Real Madrid in the summer of 2007 from Premier League powerhouse Manchester United for around â‚¬10 million.
But he was also wanted by Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez at the time but Man United manager Sir Alex Ferguson declined to sell Heinze to his Premier League rivals. But Liverpool seem to have sustained their interest in the player and are now allegedly interested in signing him.
It’s being said that Rafa Benitez would like to sign the experienced 30-year old in January but it is unlikely that Real Madrid would even think of letting the player leave. The Spanish championships are enduring a torrid time at the moment and have several of their players suffering injury problems, especially in their defensive department.
