Real Madrid's Heinze linked with Liverpool swap for Xabi
Florentino Perez has reportedly already reached an agreement for Spain midfielder Alonso. The paper says the Anfield star had agreed to a deal in principle weeks ago and that Liverpool accepted an offer on Friday.
But there remain a few variables to sort out. Former Manchester United defender Heinze could go the other way in part-exchange, with Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez a long-term admirer of the Argentina international.
