Argentinean full back Emiliano Insua returned to pre-season training at Liverpool this week after spending last season on loan at Galatasaray. Speaking on his Facebook page, Insua stated that he was glad to be back on Merseyside:
“In Liverpool again, I hope to be here this season and to give something to the team, I am with energy to do it.”
There’s some confusion over when Insua’s contract runs out, with some believing that his contract expired this summer, but as he returns to the Reds, it does suggests that Insua maybe still contracted to the Reds, unless he is training with the the Reds while looking for a new club.
Insua’s agent Rodrigo Vilarino said today that Roma’s Sporting Director Walter Sabatini had been in contact about his client, and it remains to be seen where the 22 year old fits into Kenny Dalglish plans
The Argentine has invariably been listed on the names of player’s expected to leave the club this summer and he had a somewhat unhappy time at Galatasaray, where he was frozen out under Gheorghe Hagi in the middle part of a season, in a campaign where the club had three managers.
The loan at Galatasaray had a clause written into that the Turkish club had an option to sign the player permanently if the loan was successful, but after Galatasaray finished 8th in the table, the option wasn’t taken up by the club.
