Ignacio Camacho categorically denies visiting Liverpool's training ground amid release clause rumours

Ignacio Camacho says he hasn't visited Liverpool's training ground.

Malaga star Ignacio Camacho has been quoted by Sky Sports (17:11) as saying the he has not taken a tour of the Liverpool training ground, contrary to recent reports.

Camacho, 25, started his career with hometown club Real Zaragoza before moving on to Atletico Madrid at the age of just 17, where he stayed until 2011.

The defensive midfielder then joined Malaga, and has become of Spanish football's top central midfielders, racking up more than 150 appearances for Malaga as well as earning one cap for the Spanish national team.

Camacho has seen the likes of Nacho Monreal, Jeremy Toulalan, Santi Cazorla, Willy Caballero, Martin Demichelis, Isco and Salomon Rondon all leave Malaga, and reports suggest that he could finally be making his departure from La Rosaleda this summer.

The Mirror reported last week that Liverpool - looking for new signings under Jurgen Klopp this summer - were prepared to pay Camacho's £10m release clause, with suggestions from the Daily Star that Camacho has in fact already visited Liverpool's Melwood training ground ahead of a possible move.

With huge questions about his future, Camacho has now tackled those rumours - and has been quoted by Sky Sports as saying that he doesn't know anything about interest from Liverpool, and was in fact told by his father that rumours suggested he had been to Merseyside - something Camacho completely denied.

"On the theme of Liverpool, I don't know anything, just that my father was alerted on Google - I was not there," said Camacho.
