According to Il Corriere Dello Sport, Roma midfielder Alberto Aquilani has been told to prepare himself to join Liverpool by the Italian Club.
The report has said that Rafa Benitez will try to buy Aquilani if Alonso is to join Madrid. However, Spanish newspaper AS said that Alonso had hinted in an interview after the Rapid Vienna game that he will not force a move away from Anfield and will not leave the club if Rafa doesn’t want to cash in on him.
Xabi is expected to stay at least one more season or until his contract with The Reds expires.
