CSKA Moscow are expected to sign Liverpool winger Albert Riera this week.

The Sun says Riera goes back to Liverpool this morning - to be offloaded to CSKA Moscow by the end of the week.

The Kop winger outraged boss Rafa Benitez with a staggering attack in a Spanish radio interview.

He dubbed Liverpool a 'sinking ship' on the eve of their Europa League clash with Lille and also claimed Benitez held 'something personal' against him.

Benitez instantly banned the Spanish star from Anfield and will now bank around £6million by selling him to CSKA while the Russian transfer window is still open.
