If at first you don't succeed, try again and again and again and again until you get a court order telling you to stop.
That seems to be the approach Liverpool have taken in their pursuit of Barcelona's young winger Cristian 'Let me hear you say Tello' Tello.
The Anfield club have been linked with the youngster strongly over the last three months and were thought to be close to agreeing a deal.
However, Tello looks set to finally snub Liverpool for good and sign a new deal at the Nou Camp that will see him tied to the club until at least 2016 with assurances that he will be getting further first team football at the club.
Brendan Rodgers is still thought to be keen on the youngster according to the Daily Mirror.
