Liverpool’s Xabi: I won’t return to Spain

Xabi has been linked with Spanish giants Real Madrid and Barcelona.

He said: “Now in my head I only have a place for the Reds. We are at a key moment in the season and I do not desire any distraction.

“Barcelona is a city that is very important to me and the club is important to my father, but in football you can’t always make your decision with your heart.”
