Xabi Alonso linked with romantic return to Liverpool
Liverpool have been linked with a romantic move for their former star Xabi Alonso, according to Tuttomercatoweb.
The Spanish midfielder decided to leave Real Madrid after five seasons in the summer of 2014, with him ending up signing for Bayern Munich.
The former Anfield favourite had been linked with a return to his former club, as well as Manchester United, but said in the end the only firm interest he had was from the Bundesliga champions.
He also felt a move to German heavyweights would give him the best chance of enjoying success.
But the report states that Jugen Klopp could be keen to bring back the 33-year-old to the club as he looks to add proven experience.
The veteran midfielder has been linked with moves to the MLS and Qatar and looks set to leave Bayern at the end of the season when his contract runs out.
Alonso, who won the Champions League with Liverpool, joined Real Madrid from the Anfield club in 2009.
