Bayer Leverkusen manager Xabi Alonso could turn down a move to Liverpool in order to join Manchester City instead.

Alonso has been linked with a move to Liverpool and Bayern Munich after impressing in his role at Leverkusen.

Bayer Leverkusen sporting director, Simon Rolfes, stated yesterday that he was confident that Xabi Alonso will not be departing for Liverpool.

Speaking on The Football News Show, journalist Guillem Balague said: “I’ll tell you a little secret.

“When he went to Bayer Leverkusen, he told his agent ‘do you know what, I am thinking that if it doesn’t go well at Bayer Leverkusen, I’ll go back to Real Sociedad.

“But if it goes well, from here, it’s Liverpool, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich. Let me add Manchester City to the equation and that’s where Xabi Alonso could go next. When, is a different matter.”
