Xabi Alonso Formally Requested Liverpool for a Real Madrid Move

Spanish international Xabi Alonso has finally made a formal request to Liverpool authority asking for a move to Real Madrid in Summer. The midfielder has been linked with a move to the Spanish giant since last year when Rafael Benitez wanted to raise fund for landing Gareth Barry by selling Alonso. No doubt, Alonso has contributed a lot to the team’s success last season and Benitez does not want to lose the influential holding midfielder.

However, Alonso has earlier verbally expressed to Benitez that he is looking for a move away from Anfield this Summer. Real Madrid has already had a £24m bid rejected by the English club. Liverpool’s £30m valuation of the player has not matched with Real Madrid budget for the player.

Now that Alonso has formally handed in a transfer request, his move to La Liga seems pretty much imminent now. The issue is now up to the two clubs if they can come under a deal for the Alonso move. Here, one thing is pretty much certain that Liverpool would find it difficult to fill up the void left by Alonso in the holding midfield position, while Alonso could be a much-needed inclusion in the Real Madrid squad.
