Liverpool have told out of favour Mario Balotelli, Fabio Borini and Jose Enrique to train separately from the Reds’ first team squad.
Mario Balotelli, Fabio Borini and Jose Enrique have become an unwanted trio an Liverpool after the major summer overhaul at Anfield this summer.
Neither of the trio was selected as a part of Liverpool’s 30 men pre-season squad that flew to Asia and Australia and trained at Melwood during the team was playing pre-season friendly matches.
According to a Daily Mail report: “this latest development is a firm indication that Liverpool have taken charge of the situation and made it clear by freezing him, Borini and Enrique out of the main action, that there is no future for them on Merseyside.”
One report claims: “Rodgers has spoken privately to the striker, making it clear he is now SEVENTH choice amongst the strikers at Anfield, behind even youngsters Jerome Sinclair and Sheyi Ojo in the pecking order.”
Reports earlier this week claimed Liverpool were willing to accept bids of £7 million for Balotelli, while Borini has been linked with a host of clubs in Italy, along with West Ham United.
Liverpool are open to offers for the Italian striker duo and willing to let Balotelli leave for £7 million only. Borini has also been linked with a number of Serie A clubs with Torino favourites to secure his signature. West Ham United are also linked with Borini.
Enrique has just 12 months left on his contract at Anfield and his future is in doubt as no club is showing interest in the Spanish left back due to his fitness issues.
