The football world was in a state of shock last night when news erupted that Bayern Munich star Xabi Alonso could be on his way to Anfield.
The transfer, which is expected to cost €7 million, was leaked by key sources at the Allianz Arena.
'Alonso is looking to leave the club as soon as possible', remarked one source.
'He has his heart set on joining Liverpool, so I reckon that the deal will go through by the end of the week.'
