Sky Sports hafa eftir bæði umboðsmanni Xabi Alonso og forseta Real Sociedad að allt sé að verða klárt með félagaskipti Xabi Alonso til Liverpool
Forseti Real Sociedad, Jose Luis Astiazaran segir:
“The most serious offer from all the teams has been from Liverpool who have been interested in our player”.
Ibanez, umboðsmaður Xabi segir eftirfarandi við Sky:
“The crossing of Xabi Alonso to Liverpool practically is done.
“On the part of the player everything is closed and now there are only small details between clubs to be done.”
Þannig að þetta virðist allt vera nokkurn veginn klárt. Vonandi að þetta klárist sem allra fyrst, svo Alonso geti verið í hópnum um næstu helgi.
Uppfært (Einar Örn): BBC fjalla líka um þetta mál og þar er að finna fleiri kvót frá umboðsmanni Xabi Alonso:
We are talking to Liverpool about the possibility of a transfer and they are the only club in the race at present. Xabi went to their game on Saturday to have important talks with the club.
In the next few days we will have further conversations with Liverpool, probably after the Spain match on Wednesday. People talk about Real Madrid but they are not in this transfer and we do not want to talk about them. They were interested maybe one or two months ago, but now we are only speaking to Liverpool.
We are confident there will be a deal and Xabi will be happy to play in England.”
Glæsilegt! Djöfulsins vesen að þurfa samt að bíða fram yfir landsleikjahléið.
