Reports doing the rounds this morning suggest that Xabi Alonso wants to quit Liverpool in the summer! I was shocked when I read this. For me personally, Alonso has been our best player this season. There has already been a lot of talk that we will sell him in the summer to Real Madrid so that we can finance the purchase of other players but now the news that he himself wants to quit has caught me off guard. I never saw this one coming, especially since Alonso has always said he wants to stay with the Reds.

Barclays Premier League: Fulham vs Liverpool APR 04

They are saying the reason he wants to quit is because he is not happy at Liverpool and he wants to move to a club where he can enjoy his football. Some how I do not buy this story! We only have to wait and hear it come directly from Alonso’s lips that he wants to quit. There is going to be a lot of transfer stories made up this summer, it is all part and parcel of football. I hope this is all untrue and Alonso stays with us for next season.

What do you make of this story?
