Kop favourite Xabi Alonso has refused to rule out a stunning permanent return to Liverpool at the end of the season.
The Spaniard was one of Rafa Benitez’s first signings at the club when he took over in 2004 and went on to lift the Champions League and FA Cup while winning over the Anfield crowd with his classy performances in the centre of midfield.
Recent reports have claimed that Liverpool are considering a surprise move to lure him back to Merseyside when his Bayern Munich contract expires at the end of the season, which has been greeted in favourable fashion by many fans.
And speaking to Goal on the subject of a move back to his old club, the 34-year-old said:
“At the moment I am focused on the season and Bayern,
“I don’t know what is going to happen in [the] future but hopefully I will know soon.
“My family and I are feeling very comfortable in Munich and we are happy here.”
Alonso left Liverpool to join Real Madrid in the summer of 2009 and went on to win the Champions League and La Liga with Los Blancos.
He then became a part of Pep Guardiola’s Bayern team in 2014, and helped the Bavarians to Bundesliga glory last season.
