The Daily Mirror reported that Xabi Alonso is currently stalling on a new deal at Real Madrid and could return to his former club Liverpool.
Alonso’s departure from Anfield was seen as the main reason for club’s huge downfall and the Reds never gave up hoping the Spain international would return to Liverpool at one point in the future. Club skipper Steven Gerrard lamented the exit of highly-rated Alonso and stated that if he could bring one player back to the club, the Xabi Alonso would be it.
Alonso, 31, has turned down the offer of a two-year extension and Real Madrid could decide to cash in on their star player if he doesn’t change his mind by next summer.
Liverpool are closely monitoring the situation, and are ready to pounce if the player opts for Santiago Bernabeu exit.
