Experienced Spaniard is happy back in his homeland.
Real Madrid midfield player Xabi Alonso has ruled out a return to the Premier League this summer, according to reports in the Daily Mail.
It has been suggested recently that the experienced Spain international could be on the verge of a move back to the English top flight, with both former club Liverpool and Chelsea understood to be keen to secure the 31-year-old for the next campaign were the holding midfield player to be made available for transfer by los Blancos in the close season.
Alonso spent five hugely successful campaigns at Anfield between 2005 and 2010 under previous Reds head coach Rafa Benitez, before returning to his homeland in August 2009 when he agreed a £30 million transfer to the Santiago Bernabeu.
However, with a contract in the Spanish capital that now only runs until June 30 2014 and still no sign of the Liga giants offering the player a new deal to remain at Madrid beyond that date, it had been thought that Alonso would be coming back to the Premier League this summer after playing 192 games for Madrid in all competitions in the past three years.
That, though, does not now appear to be the case, with the Spaniard insistent that his future remains very much in Spain for now when quizzed on his possible EPL return.
“The Premier League? No. No way, no chance,” Alonso said emphatically on the matter.
