Liverpool intend to sell Albert Riera this week.

The Sunday Mirror says Liverpool hope to recoup most of the £8million they paid Espanyol for the Spanish winger less than two years ago by offloading him to Champions League quarter-finalists CSKA Moscow.

The transfer window is open in Russia until next month and Spartak Moscow have also lodged an ­interest.

Riera, who has been told there is no way back for him at Anfield despite a desperate attempt to retract his bitter criticism, would prefer to stay in England or move to Italy or Spain.
