Chelsea have eyes firmly on Spaniard

alonso.jpgWe at Football Transfer Tavern cannot wait to see Jose Mourinho back in England next season and if he joins Chelsea he wants to bring midfielder Xabi Alonso with him according to the The Independent.

Alonso is one of few allies that Mourinho has in the Madrid camp and the Spanish international would also welcome a move back to England after enjoying some of his best years at Liverpool.

Mourinho is set for crunch talks with the Madrid hierarchy in the coming weeks to discuss his future and the possible compensation that Chelsea will have to pay for his services, rumoured to be £12 million.

Alonso has just one year remaining on his current deal in the Spanish capital and despite being offered a new contract, he is set to wait and see what happens with his manager before making a decision.

Liverpool fans may not be particularly pleased to see another one of their favourite players of recent years wearing the blue of Chelsea however.

Will Mourinho and Alonso link up once more at Chelsea or is it simply ambitious speculation? Rate this rumour below.
