Liverpool boss Benitez struggling to keep hold of Xabi

Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez is battling to hold onto midfielder Xabi Alonso.

The Daily Mail says Benitez may struggle to convince Alonso to remain at Anfield after a £20m bid from Real Madrid and interest from Manchester City.

Alonso almost joined Juventus last summer and has now reluctantly concluded he may have to end a five-year stay at Liverpool after sensing Benitez is prepared to sacrifice him to raise funds.
