- Valverde spoke about transfer away from Real Madrid
- Was linked with a move to Premier League in the summer
- Liverpool one of the clubs interested in the player
WHAT HAPPENED? The Uruguayan was linked with a move to the Premier League in the summer after the arrival of Jude Bellingham at Santiago Bernabeu. Giants like Liverpool, Manchester City and Chelsea had reportedly enquired about the player's availability but a move never materialised.
Valverde is refusing to rule out a future move away from Real, but has no plans to leave while he is still a key member of Carlo Ancelotti's starting lineup.
WHAT THEY SAID: Speaking to reporters, the Uruguayan said: "Premier League offers? I have the possibility of playing for Real. The day I don't feel like that, I will probably look for another solution or Real itself will look for one for me."
THE BIGGER PICTURE: The 25-year-old midfielder has started for Real Madrid in four out of their five La Liga matches so far this season and scored one goal.
