Guillem Balague denies Xabi Alonso is heading back to Liverpool
It is false that Xabi Alonso has got any kind of agreement with Liverpool

The rumours have been doing the rounds in recent days, could Xabi Alonso make a sensational return to Anfield?
On the face of it, Alonso heading back to Liverpool could be possible.
The Spanish midfielder is out of contract at Real Madrid at the end of the season and has always spoken of his enjoyment of playing in England and for Liverpool.
The Merseyside giants are going great guns in the Premier League, are looking like a force again in England and Alonso would surely enjoy the challenge of playing under Brendan Rodgers for a club on the rise.
Alas, all the rumours, and there have been a few in the last few days, appear to be untrue.
Guillem Balague, the Sky Sports pundit, with plenty of connections in Madrid (he writes for AS) and in England, rubbished the chatter on Twitter on Wednesday morning.
The most likely scenario is that Alonso will stay in Madrid, if not the cultured midfielder could be MLS-bound.
