Alonso to stay at Liverpool

Juventus have been trailing Liverpool’s Spanish midfielder Xabi Alonso all summer, but on Monday they have completed a deal for Sevilla midfielder Christian Poulsen. Now it seems that they have cooled their interest in Alonso.

According to The Guardian, Cobolli Gigli, a Juventus official, stated that a deal for Alonso would be highly unlikely to take place.

“Everyone knows that the transfer market ends on August 31. But if I have to be honest, unless something extraordinary happens, we can say that we have concluded our transfer activity.” Said Gigli according to the report.

This development is likely to end Liverpool’s interest in Aston Villa’s Gareth Barry. The Englishman would have been brought in to replace the outgoing Alonso, but now there would be no need for him.
