Liverpool have confirmed the sale of Gabriel Paletta to Argentinian side Boca Juniors as both Sami Hyypia and Jamie Carragher are on the Melwood treatment table.
21 year old Paletta spent a season at Anfield - making 8 first team appearances but with opportunites limited (ironically probably not now) - the reds agreed to make his move to Boca a permanent one. The player had planned to spend a season on loan with the club and actually moved for his loan last weekend.
“I’m very happy to join such a big club in Argentina. The expectations are huge. Now I will try my best to get into shape quickly so I can be ready for the manager”.
Meanwhile Sami Hyypia has been confirmed as having sustained a broken nose. Initial x-rays on Jamie Carragher were not conclusive and the player had further tests today. It has been confirmed that Carragher has sustained a broken rib, and a pneuomthorax - a potentially more serious injury. There is currently no date on when he will return but it looks likely to be at least 4 weeks.
Three central defenders disappearing in a weekend. Wonder if Heinze has got a buy-out clause at Madrid?
