Goal.com reports that FC Barcelona are planning to a lauch a massive bid for Liverpool star Xabi Alonso in the summer in order to revamp their squad after what could be a highly disappointing season for the second time in a row.
Alonso has fallen out of favour at Anfield and these days he is not even observed on the Liverpool bench, let alone play first team football regularly. His form as taken a dip to the south in recent weeks and he too has fallen an unwitting victim to manager Rafael Benitez’s rotation policy.
Yet somehow you doubt the alleged interest of the Catalan giants in the Spanish international midfielder. Alonso is a world class player and is one of the favourites of Rafa. Although the player has slipped down in Rafa’s books of late, it would be naive to suggest that Benitez would like to let go one of his best players.
