Real Madrid President Florentino Perez has been dismissive of claims that Liverpool midfielder Xabi Alonso would be on his way to the Santiago Bernabeu this summer.
The man in charge of the finances at the Spanish clubs said “He is a great player but he also plays in a big team and I haven’t heard any news that they plan to sell him,”
“It’s obvious (Liverpool manager Rafa) Benitez is counting on keeping him. That’s normal, he’s a good player and it wouldn’t be easy to replace him.”
This may finally put and end to the speculation surrounding the Spaniards future at Anfield, especially when taking into consideration Real’s latest, record-breaking, signing Kaka and their renewed interest in World Player of the Year Cristiano Ronaldo.
