Liverpool to Replace Alonso with Perfect £11m Argentine: Should Keep Mascherano Happy!

Top notch player lined up in case Xabi leaves the club!

WORLD CUP SOCCER: Argentina

You’ll Digg This!

The Rumour

Should Xabi Alonso leave Liverpool this summer then the Reds are lining up an offer for midfielder Esteban Cambiasso, alleges Tuttomercatoweb.com.

The 28-year-old Argentine still has a year left on his current deal, but the Nerazzurri have not moved in to secure his services beyond that date just yet.

The Analysis

I am huge fans of Esteban Cambiaso, he’s a clever midfielder probably best known for being the guy who ended that amazing 24 pass move in Argentina’s fantastic 6-0 win over Serbia and Montenegro in the 2006 World Cup. He’s vastly experienced and has won things wherever he’s gone.

If Liverpool were to lose Xabi Alonso then this Inter Milan man would be the perfect replacement and if Jose Mourinho would consider such a sale then Rafa would surely pounce for a player this gifted. Being a countryman of Argentine captain Javier Mascherano may also help persuade the former West Ham man to not seek a move to Barcelona, but that would just be an added bonus.

No Anfield fan would want to lose Xabi, he’s a classy player, but if he were to go then I can think of no better replacement.

The Likelihood

Cambiaso to Liverpool: Dependent on Alonso’s future on Merseyside.
