Liverpool owners willing to bankroll Xabi return

Liverpool's owners have given manager Brendan Rodgers the green light to move for Real Madrid midfielder Xabi Alonso. The Daily Star says Rodgers had been given the go-ahead to move for Alonso despite the fact he's now 31.

Liverpool's owners - the Fenway Sports Group - have implemented a strategy to invest in youth but they were willing to waive their beliefs, like they did for Kolo Toure, to sign Alonso.

But the stumbling block for BR is the player, himself, with Alonso favouring a switch to Jose Mourinho's Chelsea.
