KopStuff - Weds 26th May. Aurelio Out / Moores Calls For Sale

Wednesday 26th May.

Fabio Aurelio shown the Anfield door. David Moores calls for Americans to sell-up.

News: TeamTalk reports that Liverpool's Brazilian left-back Fabio Aurelio will be leaving the club 'next week'. The 30 year old has been plagued with injury for the past two seasons, and had been offered a pay-as-you-play deal by Rafa Benitez. Aurelio missed the majority of last season after a freak injury which occurred whilst playing football with his children. His departure leaves a lack of cover for the left sided position, with the young Argentine Emiliano Insua as the club's sole left back.

Rumour: Hot on the back of this news, the S*n is already speculating about who will be brought in to the club as Aurelio's replacement. Reports suggest that this will be none other than Aston Villa's £5m rated Curtis Davies. Whether Rafa would be willing to lose the services of Aurelio, to take on a defender who himself only started two Premiership games last season through injury, remains to be seen.

News: The Times carries a 3,155 word letter today from David Moores, containing, amongst other things, an admission of regret over his sale of the club to Mssrs Hicks and Gillett. In keeping with the feelings of Liverpool fans the world over, Moores calls upon the Americans to sell up. Whilst Moores states that the sale of the club was done with its 'very best interests at heart', he states that the Americans should do their best to find new owners, and asks that they 'don't punish the supporters any more.'

Rumour: Football blog Caught Offside suggests that Rafa Benitez plans an audacious triple-move for Manchester City trio Micah Richards, Nedum Onuoha and Michael Johnson. Whilst the acquisition of the three City players would boost Liverpool's 'home-grown' contingent, many fans may feel that the quoted £22 million could be better spent, with Richards, Onuoha and Johnson managing just a handful of Premiership starts for City last term.

And finally: The S*n reports that Fernando Torres will be 'staying put'. Tell us something we didn't know.
