The Daily Express have a rather interesting piece of news for Chelsea fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern.
The publication claims that former Liverpool midfielder Xabi Alonso is on the radar of Jose Mourinho and the manager will not waste anytime in bringing him to Stamford Bridge.
As one of our punters points out, Alonso was one of Mourinho’s biggest defenders at Real Madrid and kept fait in the manager when even the skipper Iker Casillas was not on the same page as the self proclaimed Special One.
In further bad news for Liverpool, Mourinho is keen to bring one of his most trusted players to Stamford Bridge and is fully aware that Alonso has snubbed new contract talks with his current club.
As he pours a pint, our landlord notes that Alonso is one of those players who we will be talking bout pretty much every day until his future is sorted, with new ru,ours about the 32 year old’s future cropping up constantly. First it seems like he is staying at his current club, then he is leaving for Chelsea, then it is a reunion with former side Liverpool. It is a good job we have laid off the Christmas tequila or we could well be getting confused right now!
Will we see the midfielder in the Premier League again? Let us know your thoughts below.
