Chelsea boss Mourinho makes personal push for Xabi
Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is making a personal push to bring Real Madrid midfielder Xabi Alonso back to England. The Daily Express says the 32-year-old former Liverpool midfielder has been made available by the Spanish club, and Chelsea are at the head of a queue of English clubs interested in signing him.
He is out of contract at the end of this season and surplus to requirements at the Bernabeu.
Real would require a fee but it would not be large, and the player gets on well with Mourinho after their spell together in the Spanish capital.
