Liverpool hero Molby: So close to Barcelona move

Liverpool hero Jan Molby admits he came close to joining Barcelona when he starred at Anfield.

He told liverpoolfc.tv: "Yes there was and in November 1990 the transfer appeared set to go through. Liverpool had accepted a £1.6m bid from Barcelona and I played in what I thought was my last game for the club against Luton.

"However, while I was away on international duty with Denmark the deal fell through. I didn't think too much about it at the time and it wasn't a big deal because I was already at a big club.

"It would have been a nice experience to have played for Barcelona, but instead I stayed at Anfield for another six-years and that wasn't too bad!"
