The Message Finally Sinks In!

Finally Real Madrid has got the message that Xabi Alonso is NOT FOR SALE. The Spaniards have been chasing the Spanish international all summer with rumour after rumour appearing but after Liverpool’s latest statement of intent not to sell Xabi (or Javier Mascherano) Real’s sporting director Jorge Valdano has admitted defeat and accepted that the message has sank in, as he explained:

‘Liverpool have issued an official statement to the public – Xabi is a player who has little chance of joining Real Madrid.

‘We tried hard to sign him a few years ago. We had a meeting with Real Sociedad but, when I left (Madrid), they lost interest in him.’

Real have admitted defeat in their efforts to sign the 27 year old, maybe this will also shut the tabloids up once and for all as well and put an end to all the rumour surrounding the Spanish international!
