Liverpool star set for January transfer?

It appears as if Lucas Leiva is set for a transfer move away from Liverpool in the upcoming January transfer window. ESPN have published an article claiming that Inter Milan coach Roberto Mancini has admitted an interest in the Brazilian and wants to sign him in the upcoming transfer market.


The Nerazzurri are currently 11th in Serie A and are looking to make the necessary additions during the January transfer window to secure a Champions League spot at the end of the season. Mancini said, “Lucas Leiva is a great player, but he belongs to Liverpool and it’s going to be hard to get him. He would be useful, though, as he could help our younger players grow.”

Despite his latest exploits, Lucas has been overlooked by manager Brendan Rodgers and has fallen way down the pecking order at the Anfield side. He was linked with Napoli in the summer but somehow stayed at Liverpool despite the strong interest. A move to Inter Milan would indeed be a great move personally for Lucas as he would get enough game time at the time of a career in which he needs to play more rather than warm the sidelines.

Mancini also called for patience saying he needs time to change Inter and it wouldn’t happen overnight. “We know that we need to improve and we also knew that we would make mistakes along the way,” he added. “You cannot become Barcelona or Bayern Munich in a month. It takes time.”
