Liverpool boss Benitez set for Xabi talks today

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez is set for crunch talks with Xabi Alonso today over his future.

The Sun says the Spanish midfielder returns to Anfield after a £16m move to Juventus collapsed. Now Alonso is worried he will spend the season in limbo, with no other serious offers on the table.

He fears he will play a bit-part role, especially if the Reds eventually land Aston Villa's Gareth Barry.
