Maxi set to leave Liverpool

Liverpool winger Maxi Rodriguez has revealed he would be open to a move back to Argentina with Newell's Old Boys.

Maxi Rodriguez The 30-year-old started his career at Newell's before leaving for Espanyol in 2002.

Maxi is set to ask Kenny Dalglish if he will release him from his contract and let him return to Argentina next season, despite still having two years left on his contract at Anfield.

   “When I left here, I knew I was coming back.”

“The president (Lorente) called me and I told him yes.”

“Now it all depends on the contract I have with Liverpool, that maybe can be loosened a little.” Maxi told La Capital on Tuesday afternoon.

Despite a successful end to last season's campaign with Liverpool, when he scored two hat-tricks as he hit seven goals in three matches, Rodriguez is likely to be only a fringe player next season if he stays.

As manager Kenny Dalglish looks to freshen up his squad and bring in younger players, Rodriguez's age could count against him.

Midfielder Charlie Adam, 25, and winger Stewart Downing, 26, are said to be on Dalglish's wish-list.
