Real Madrid midfielder Xabi Alonso has refuted rumours linking him with a return to the Premier League.

Former club Liverpool has been mooted as a potential destination for Alonso, while Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, who managed the 31-year-old at the Bernabeu for the last three seasons, is thought to be interested in luring the Spaniard to Stamford Bridge.

Mourinho oversaw his first training session since returning for a second spell as Chelsea manager on Tuesday, but Alonso appears unlikely to join him in London.

“The Premier League? No. No way no chance,” Alonso is quoted as saying by AS when asked about the prospect of working with Mourinho for a second time.

Specualtion over Alonso’s future at Real is unlikely to dissipate though, the two-time UEFA European Championships winner is out of contract in June 2014 and would be able to leave Madrid for free at the end of next season.

A mainstay of Mourinho’s Real side, Alonso made 47 appearances in all competitions last term.
