Reds Linked With Cruzeiro Starthumbnail

Marcelo Moreno is a 20-year-old striker who’s half Bolivian and half Brazilian. He plays for Brazilian outfit Cruzeiro.

His form has attracted the attention of two of Europe’s biggest clubs in Real Madrid and Liverpool, with both said to be ready to make a move in the coming weeks in order to tie up the talanted marksman’s signature in time for next season.

Moreno netted 10 goals in 14 apperences for his club last season and already has 6 goals in 6 apperences in the Copa Libertadores this season (the South American champions leauge).

When asked about the rumoured interest he dismissed any knowledge of their interest.

“I do not know anything about this and if I was to leave Brazil it would have to be a deal that is good for me and for Cruzeiro. My only concern is to continue working hard.”

His coach Adílson Batista said:

“I have also heard of other clubs interested in the player, but for the time being nothing is concrete.”

“He looks like being an excellent player. Cruzeiro is a shop window, a great school that is currently having a good moment and this type of speculation is normal.”
