Respected Spanish football journalist rubbish Alonso to Liverpool claims…
Guillem Balague, the highly regarded Spanish football journalist, has dismissed reports that Real Madrid star Xabi Alonso is set to join Liverpool in the January transfer window.
The deep-lying midfielder enjoyed a wonderful spell at Anfield between 2004 and 2009, but his contract at Real Madrid runs out next summer, fuelling speculation that he could be set for a romantic return.
Balague has encouraged Liverpool fans not to get their hopes up though, and the likelihood is that Alonso will sign a new deal with Los Galacticos.
It is false that Xabi Alonso has got any kind of agreement with Liverpool
